    It's one of the most useful techniques you can say for building some handy links. You can start participating in your niche forums and give your active contribution for getting the maximum benefit from them.

    If you post in a relevant niche forum then the answer is YES. It helps but I wouldn't main focus on forum backlinks as they are usually weak. You need link diversity, web 2.0 , authority , blog posting , social etc.

    forum posting is best way to get targeted traffic. Manual blog commenting is also good.

    Forum posting is not an SEO technique, it is a backlink technique. Search Engine Optimization is just that optimization. SEO is making sure your site is optimized correctly. You want to use forum posting to get people to visit your site, but once they get their your site need to be optimized correctly. So how do you optimize your site correctly?

    First make sure you have all the proper tags on your site H1, H2, and H3. Then make sure your keyword (s) is the first word of your site. Then make sure you have your keywords throughout your post. You also want to make sure you have your keyword bold, underlined, and italicized. Next, you want to make sure you have at least one image on your site with your keyword as the alt text. And last but not least, make sure you end your post/page with your keyword.

    That is how you do on-page optimization. Off-page optimization is another story.

    a rating of 2? 2 out of 10? forum posting is one way but not THE way. DIVERSITY is the answer. If diversity was not then everyone would just be posting backlinks to a million blogs a day etc.

    Forum posting is a good way to build link but it is more on exploring your site.
    There are many other way other than forum posting such as directory submission, guest blogging, blog commenting, directory submission, link exchange etc

    I hope that most of you are aware that most forums are nofollow. If the links you are getting are nofollow then it is useless for SEO. You can drive tons of traffic by doing it, don't get me wrong, but from an SEO sense, its pretty pointless.
