I started a blog recently as a test study. The niche is dealing with women and the things that we go through in various stages in life. I have received over 1,000 visitors in 2 months. My plan is to implement 100 links to my website strictly using forums. I am not using signature links or profile links. I am engaging in each community and leaving in the links related to the topic. So far I am 10% ways there. I was taught back in 2010 to just worry about profile links. And, boy how stupid that was! I am getting more traffic doing what I am doing now. It is more work, but it is worth it. I put together a plan. Now I am knocking that plan out and getting seeing more results this way. However, it does take massive action. At this point I think that I will be training people to build up these forum accounts so that I can go in later and add the links. This will be the best use of my time while I build the site out!
