    Hi,
    1. You have a gorgeous infographic.
    2. You wrote about competitors' backlinks. I've never understood how to do that analysis or why I'd want to.
    3. You mention forums in your infographic. As soon once I've started here can I put links in my threads? Thanks.

    1) Thank you! :)
    2) There are a few different websites that provide toolkits to analyze a domains backlinks basically what you do is you search your target keywords in Google and identify what websites are ranking at the top. then you take those websites and you use one of these websites, most have free tools that are limited but still provide good insight:
    • Moz
    • SEMRush
    • SEOReviewTools
    • Majestic
    3) Every forum is different. The rules if I have read them correctly here is that an account can begin posting links after 3 regular members have liked your posts/content. I've been on forums that would jump on you quickly for outbound links to your domain period, and I've had some that were ok with it so long as the content is relevant.

    Even if a forum doesn't allow outbound links, quite often the profile will allow you to put your domain in your profile and you'll still acquire the backlink that way.

    Stealing competitors backlinks is good strategy. I do this with ahrefs, but Semrush is also great tool.

    People always forget about Ahrefs. Their "Top Pages" tool is equally brilliant for repurposing competitor content and making it your own.
