The key to using forums to drive traffic is participation. That's right. You have to get off your duff, stop standing on the sidelines, just lurking in the forums, and actually post something. This is important for a few reasons. Three of the most important reasons are:
* First, many forums will not allow you to post a link until you have a given number of posts on that forum.
* Second, you want to be seen as an authority, not someone who is just there posting links to drive traffic to you website. In order to accomplish that, you have to post information that will help people solve their problems.
* Third, and a very important reason to post, is that it can provide a link to your site; a link in. Google, Yahoo and many of the other search engines look for links in to determine relevance to a particular subject. The more links in you have, the higher you will place on the search engines. Being highly placed on the search engines practically guarantees targeted traffic.
Problem solving is important. You have to be a problem solver. People are looking to you to be a solution provider. If you are, they will reward you; gladly. Quality posts on the right forums will establish you as someone who has the answers. People love answers. It makes life easier for them. You can be that person who makes life easier for them. If you are that person who makes life easier, people will reward you. When you are, people will follow links to your site for the answers they are looking for and more information on a subject, product or service.
