Additionally you can add a forum signature to your profile which everyone will see whenever you make a post.
There are two major reasons why you should take advantage of using forum signatures.
The fist reason is the direct traffic you can get, and second, the SEO advantages.
This article will help you find some tips on how to maximize the effect of forum signatures, as well as get good traffic as a result of them.
When you are starting out in home business marketing, your first task will be to decide which forums to join and post at. These are some basic rules which you should keep in mind when doing so:
1. Only join forums directly related to your niche. Links from websites related to yours will have higher SEO value compared to links from unrelated sites. The traffic which you can get through the signature links will be targeted, so you can expect higher conversion rates on your click-throughs.
2. Look for forums with a high search engine page rank. Backlinks from websites with a high page rank will help your website rank better in search engines than lower page ranked sites.
3. Search for dofollow forums. Dofollow means that there is no ‘rel=nofollow’ attribute to the signature links. Only dofollow links have an impact on SEO.
Once you have joined a few forums, you are now ready to start posting. Keep in mind that every forum has different sections. Think about your potential customers. Which section will you find them in? Try to start with threads that have no replies. That way your signature will be seen by anyone who visit’s the thread because it will be visible without having to scroll down. The more people who see your signature, the more they will click on it.
As you can see, taking advantage of forum signatures can have a positive impact on direct traffic, as well as SEO advantages. Don’t put it off any longer, use a signature!
