I was reviewing some of my old internet activities and came across something that made my mouth drop
Between 2009 and 2011 I participated in a single high-traffic forum in an evergreen niche. I contributed just over 1,000 posts. For the most part my contributions were highly controversial and polarizing, as a result I ended up with some very vocal opposition but also a ton of friends. All of this was purely for entertainment and eventually I moved on to other things.
A few days ago I looked it up and every thread I contributed to is long dead and buried for 2+ years now. But stats show that combined they still generate over 20,000 views a month. I couldn't believe my eyes! Too bad that forum doesn't allow commercial promotion or I'd go back and stick a signature link in there.
How about you what are your experiences with forum marketing?
