Forum Engagement

Forums are very similar to social media, but they possess one advantage – they contain information that benefits you and your blog, provided that you’ve joined a forum related to your blog’s niche. Hence, forums often contain questions that you might easily be able to answer even though they’re not so easy for everyone else.

Popular forums such as the Warrior Forum etc. Have a good number on online and active members, henceforth new threads are posted every now and then. Engaging in forums could be fun and interesting because you are free to answer and ask about whatever that attracts you in the specific niche. Needless to say that you’ll obviously benefit your blog as you’ll get traffic from forums and also by getting backlinks (you should be creative enough to build quality backlinks, though).

Comments

  1. I do #2 and #3 quite regularly. #1? There aren’t too many quality forums for the niche I’m blogging in. I read informative articles, share them and try to connect with them and thus making them my new friends.

    Good post, Raaj!

    Aditya

    • What’s your niche? I’ve found that some sites, like Google +, have great communities and forums to fit most niches.

    • Thanks Aditya.

      Well, I can recommend you some. Go for Warrior Forum. Many active members throughout the day.

      All the best.

      • Oops. I’m sorry. I was mistaken that your niche is the same as mine! Well, I’m sure you’ll find some good forum related to your niche. If not, then you have 3 things to do NOW – 1) Buy a domain 2) Start A Forum 3) Enjoy The benefits!

        Cheers

  2. @Raaj: I think finding GOOD images (creative commons or stock photos) should also be considered an interesting (and productive) activity. What about going through Google analytics to find some great long-tail keywords you are ranking for and figuring out if you can put together a tutorial or guide related to that long-tail requirement?

    • Agreed. But Jeet, sometimes when you don’t have any ideas about your next post, finding images would be similar to finding a job without a degree – you just don’t know where to go! On the other hand, playing around with GA could prove to be beneficial.

      Thanks for adding your insight! Cheers

      • Lol, I like that analogy. I guess reading more posts and blogs that cover ‘industry news’ is definitely the best way to get new ideas (but can get boring sometimes) :D

  3. Agree with #1 and #2 points which are my daily favorite activities which helps me to be updated with latest technology of related niche.

    Looking such a great tech stuff from you.
