Forum Posting — Ask People How Great You Are

Forum posting is a tricky endeavor – if it weren’t, you probably wouldn’t be here reading an article about it.But it serves some great functions, including back linking to your site (which is great for your web site’s ranking in the search engines), showing potential visitors what you’ve produced (and hopefully turning them into your dedicated readers and customers), and the best of all… Forum posting allows others to comment on what they like and don’t like about your site.

Obviously, putting a link back to your site (or back linking, as it’s called in the “Interweb Biz”) is a great way to increase the number of links that search engine spiders can crawl on – which is not only good for getting you indexed and attaining higher page rankings.Obviously, the more links you have to your site, the more likelihood you’ll have people actually visiting your site.

On the Internet, politeness is not the all but guaranteed basic nicety it is in the real world.In fact, people can be downright harsh, since you don’t know who they are, where they live, or whether you can beat them up if they hurt your feelings.If Cialis 10mg you go on a forum and ask, “How’s my site?” be prepared for the occasional person to spend a couple of paragraphs disrespecting everything from your font size, to your color scheme… and if you’re really lucky, they might actually stop ranting and raving long enough to actually read a little of your site.

But since most impressions are formed within seconds, do not expect a genuine content assessment during a thrashing session – and if you get it, be sure to thank the person for ripping your pride to shreds and telling it like it is.

In the case of people who actually care about quality content, they’ll respect you if you can take your lumps and move forward (including actually applying some of their suggestions).And in the case of trolls (people who go around saying harsh things to others, just to get a rise out of the attacked parties and feel smugly superior), thanking them for their attempt to anger you is a high tech way to “kill ‘em with kindness.”

So don’t be shy in those forums.Get your forum posting going, and see how many ways it can help your site grow better.
