    If you post a link, linking to quality content, in a relevant forum or under a relevant blog post, why wouldn't it work?

    If you are asking if it works as a backlink, you may want to change your way of thinking and just focus on quality content and sharing it with a relevant audience, and the rest will take care of itself.

    Forums are nofollow but are also a wonderful opportunity to network with other marketers and to get them to help you out with anything you may need. Social media can be a powerful tool too but you will have to work on building a following with anything you do online. The best way to get backlinks is by making articles and videos with YouTube

    Build relevant and quality links for your website/blog, that's certainly going to give your positive results. You can use any link building technique which you feel can help you to get quality and relevant links (niche directory submission, blog posting, business listing, blog commenting, forum posting etc.) .

    Yes, forum posting and blog commenting works only when you are sharing your knowledge with users instead of sharing about your services or products. If you are participating in forum discussion with the intention f promoting your services then it will not work for you. Try to answer as a expert in your field, so that people consider you to hire you for your services. The only think which works in forum discussion and blog commenting is the website link which you added into your profile.

    whatever you do it is very important to make the right balance between your keywords like you should not use your main keywords more than 5% and you will be good to go and read seo forums about this ....

    What a depressing thread. You got this many comments, and practically all of them giving you wrong advice and false information.

    As a general rule of thumb forum links and blog comments DO NOT WORK as SEO. They're nofollow, and Google will not pass any link juice. Of course you do not need to avoid nofollow links - everyone has them. They will show in your link profile, but will not do much good for you.

    Post good content, and someone might click your sig link. The overwhelming majority will not.

        Borderline spamming and poor quality sites don't really work. There's nothing new about that. Well, they might do something if you don't have any real competition, but that's not the case with any site I'm working on...

        Industry sites. Partners. Link baiting: cool content, tight writing, infographics, or just doing something noteworthy. PBNs. Finding a quality SEO partner who can provide links.

            Use Google search. For example my first hit (from piktochart) seems to have fairly solid advice.

    Yes, still work fine and even article posting is working. Most of the Internet marketer said these link building techniques is dead but it's not right. You have to build your links with smart way, as per new Google's updates, that's it!

    Of course this is still working! The trick, however, is not to spam!

    If you choose to do some blog commenting, always read the articles first and offer something insightful when you comment. Leaving spammy comments like "great article!" or anything that is obviously not related to the topic will just get you sent to spam.

    And with forums, it's tricky. You'd need to be an active member to make yourself noticed and to make people trust you enough to care about your website in your signature. Just by posting random silly forum posts, you won't get anywhere. Or worse, you'll get your account suspended because it would be obvious you don't want to contribute to the community, you're just there to promote yourself.

    Most forums and blogs will nofollow your link in signature / comment. So you cannot these for link building in large way.
    Another factor to consider is anchor text diversity to avoid Penguin penalty

      Nofollow links is great for create some mixture of links with dofollow + nofollow...

      If you create only dofollow that not looks natural, and yes, anchor text diversity is important factor also

    It has a big value. While you are blog commenting keep your link and it should be relevant. And for forum you have to spend time here for getting signature or putting link.

    Hi,

    Yes still working forum posting and blog commenting for SEO. But you need to work with authority sites only. So check those sites authority score, then you can start working on those sites.

    Yes, they are still working. You can contribute valuable answers to the questions in the forums sites related to your business. But, don't put excessive links as it can consider you as a spammer. You can put relevant links in the answers, but not always. In the beginning, contribute relevant answers without any link as much as you can.

    Blog commenting can also be useful. Try to comment on the do follow websites related to your websites.

    It most certainly still works. People are looking for different types of sites to look at as well as purchase things that they may have otherwise not purchased if they never found the site. I think this is why link building is so successful. Also linking blogs together will allow for people to go from one blog to the other.

    If you know a friend who has a successful blog see if he or she could embed your link into their page somewhere for people to see.

    Yes, discussion posting and website remarking works just when you are imparting your insight to clients as opposed to offering about your administrations or items. In the event that you are partaking in gathering examination with the plan f advancing your administrations then it won't work for you. Attempt to reply as a master in your field, so individuals consider you to contract you for your administrations. The main think which lives up to expectations in gathering discourse and online journal remarking is the site join which you included into your profile.

    Forum posting and Blog comments both are the best method to build backlink. This off page technique is also working to drive more traffic to your website.
