    Hi all,
    SEMrush
    Is this okay or is this considered to be spam? Will google penalize you for joining dozens of forums and posting relevant stuff there, either from your own articles or general talk?

    Hi Student23,

    It is ok as long as you contributed/commented meaningful instead of just to get the backlinks.

    But then there is the question of the niche, if the content of the forum(s) matches that of your site or not.

    Thanks for the replies!

    Wouldn't this confuse google into thinking that the content on my website is just a duplicate (instead of vica versa)?
    Yes, I'll do my best to find forums that are related to the niche but all I'm scared and worried about is being declared a 'spammer'

    Don't worry about the spammer part as long as you are the one contributing and socializing on it and not some bot that is gonna type things that makes people seriously scratch their heads to try to figure out.

    If you start spamming the forum then yes, otherwise no.
