Now read the forum rules first, generally every forum board has different layouts and different positions.Hence, browse throughout the site. Some of the places where you can find it is 1. Inside the main forum threads as sticky posts, you'll 1st PM that you will get from Forum Admins, at the bottom of the footer, etc.,
Register yourself clicking on the 'Register' or 'Sign up' button.It will be usually at top right or at below the header or somewhere else. Remember, forums have been one of the top backlink building source for SEO masters and Forum boards intentionally keeps the 'Register' button at different places to avoid spam registrations.
Go to your mailbox to verify and confirm the registration. You'll get the mail to the mail address that you have entered while registration. Please remember that at times, the mail will be delayed due to some scenarios like server congestion, manual verification, etc.,
Wait for the Administrator.Even after verifying the mail, you may be put on waiting queue till Admin manually changes your membership status to 'live'. It may take from 5 minutes to indefinite time depending on the admin's availability.

When you enter your links in the Signature field which you'll usually see in the 'user control panel' menu at the top, it is called as signature links. When you post links manually within the posts you write in threads, these are called as 'Post links'. Both has advantages and disadvantages. Signature links is constant and so will be same in all the posts it appear and your job is easier to post links. But you may never be able to be found in a forum board if you have an access to signatures. Hence, first check 'user cpanel' and find the 'signature' tab. If you don't find it, search threads using the search bar available on forum board with the keyword 'signature'. Now read all the postings to know where and how to use signature if it's available. Also understand that some signatures allow either html tags or bb codes or nothing. These vary at every forum boards mostly. The other link type is the post links- any link that you add within a post is post link. Most of the forum has formatting options and so you can select the keyword you want to post link on and select the 'URL' option at top and enter the url you want to link to, you can also have a naked urls within the post, but these are all again depends on the forum sites you are posting at.
- As forum boards easily ban anyone they think as spam, it's advisable for you to use a fake IP address till you master the technique of forum link building.
- Mostly, the posts you make on introduction thread will not be counted and so don't waste time on those.
- To find if a forum site allows a signature or link, you can quickly go through the popular discussions and browse all the pages to know if any links available either within the posts or signatures. If you don't find any, avoid the forum site and move on to the next.
