    Hi,

    yes you will need to set up an account at each forum you visit.

    Some will allow you a link in your signature file.

    This is the file at the bottom of each message.

    You will need to go into your "profile" to edit your signature file
    and add your signature which can be a few words and a link that you choose.

    You will not be posting anonymously as you will be a member of the forum.

    You can also enter discussions that are relevant to your website and people
    will be more likely to click on your link if you have posts that are relevant to the topic.

    On some forums you are allowed to post adverts and links, for example if there is a
    "for sale" or "freebies" page.

    I hope this helps.
    Ged

    Make sure, though, that you are continually trying to provide value to the forum(s) you visit and post to. Post count isn't everything....and, isn't exactly the best indicator of success or failure, but it IS looked at by others. With that said, that is basically forum etiquette 101. Give, give and give some more. If people like what you post, and you come to be known for providing exceptional quality, they will (eventually) click through to see what you and your endeavors are all about. Best to you!

    From SEO perspective, the forum signature links are not very useful. But you can surely attract some visitors :p

    Pick a few very good forums in your niche, not just any forum. These should be highest traffic forums with good daily traffic. Then work on becoming an established member of that site. Don't just post nonsense threads and responses to get the post count required for your signature line. Once you have earned your signature line, don't simply disappear from the site as your signature link could be removed by a watchful mod or admin who realizes you only used the site for backlinking purposes. Once you have established yourself as a trusted member of the forum, you will benefit from direct traffic off your signature link as well as some SEO backlinking benefit (assuming the backlink is do follow).

    It's really not as complex as you may think.

    First, find the forums related to your niche.
    (It seems you've already done this)

    Next, confirm if these forums allow signatures.
    Not all of them do.

    With the forums you've chosen take your time
    and set up your profiles (avatar included).

    Use pictures of yourself to help in your brand.

    Almost all forums will allow you to display your
    website...but only from your profile of the
    respective forum.

    For the ones that DO allow signatures, take
    the time to set one up (for each forum).

    At this point just be a natural and help others.
    Provide value and add (sensibly) to already
    established threads.

    Contribute consistently and regularly.

    And whatever you do...

    Do not be that spammer.
    You'll be banned without thought.

    You should visit as many forums in your niche as you can and sign up to them all.

    Once you are in you should edit your profile and create a short bio and include a link to your site. Then you should edit your signature to attract visitors to your site.

    After that its best to start an introduction thread and then start posting on other threads around the forum.

    The more informative you are, the more likely people are to click on your link.

    Yes Forum posting is the best way to get lot of traffic because lot of forum allow you to add your signature link you add your website name as your signature link.
    and try to participate in all thread and reply use full information to other members and one most important think forum is not the place where you promote your link. Forum is place where people help each other by giving suggestion.
    Don't expect any traffic from forum but if you got traffic than think you have post some usefull information in this forum so that people interested to know more about you and finally you got traffic.
    Hope it helps
    Thanks.

    Forum posting is one of the best ways to get truly targeted traffic to your website.
    Make sure you are providing extremely good value to the community you are posting in. Also I would only consider forums that were extremely popular and that allow the links in your signature.

    Sometimes creating an epic type post can bring you targeted traffic for a very long time. The more good information you give out, the more you will receive in return.

    Good luck in your endeavors.

    Why would you post anonymously? The point of forum marketing is to become
    known as the expert on the subject of the forum.

    Don't hurry to involve discussing and promote your offers at signatures, and find questions others are asking, and do some research, then post to related threads.
