Weekly Wrap – 10 July 2011 – Finding Forums To Comment On Using Big Board

If you’ve been blogging for a while you’ll understand the importance of backlinks to your site. There’s two reasons why you need backlinks:

  1. They act as kind of a ‘vote’ for your site. The more people who link to your site, the more important it can be seen by Google.
  2. They’re an excellent way to get visitors to your site.

When I’m building backlinks, I’m more interested in doing it for the second reason. My priority is to get targeted traffic to my blog, and finding other blogs and forums to comment on is one excellent way to do this.

I have a list of blogs that I comment on, and I’m starting to do the same with forums. Up to now, I’ve found it hard to find some forums, but I recently came across Big-Boards.com.

Big Boards is a web site that allows you to search for forums on certain topics. Type in ‘Guitar’ and it will show you forums about guitars. Type in ‘Dog Training’ and you’ll get a list of forums on that topic. Importantly, it also allows you to see other information about the number of members, posts per day etc so you can focus on the most active forums in your niche.

This week’s Weekly Wrap video shows how I use Big-Boards.com to find forums to comment on.

    Hi Allan,

    I remember a few years back when I found this site, I was SO thrilled. I was also taught the just search for forums in Google but I found this site to be so much easier.

    Great video showing us how to get around in there and find what we need. I love people to walk me through how to do things. Then there is never a question about how to do something and no more excuses for not getting the job done.

    Have a great day Allan and thanks again. Wonderful post!
