I have been a member of some forums and gone to Google and checked my backlinks and found over half a from forums with "Do-follow" tags.

The other benefit is you usually post in forums related to your product or website niche like we are all interested in SEO, so if this is "do-follow" then the backlinks we gain from this forum would be relevant to our site!

Although you never want to join a forum just to spam it up - that is always a no-no!

Would you share your registered forum list? How do you get "Do-follow" links from the signature?

The quality and impact of forum link development is a hot topic in the SEO field. Many feel the method is based on a spammy, black hat strategy that will eventually result in a Google ranking penalty. When done correctly, however, leveraging forums to drive authority to your site can be a very efficient and cost-effective strategy for any business.
Many people have crossed a line on forums by using low-quality forums to stuff hundreds of links into short, thin answers in the hopes of improving their Google results. The people who participate in the topics determine the quality of a forum. The majority of forum visitors are internet savvy and interested in the same forum niche. Using forums to reach out to a certain group and making valid, meaningful contributions can be incredibly beneficial in attracting authentic authority to your website.

How to Be a Part of the Community
It's time to get set up and develop a professional, complete profile once the new forums have been located and reviewed. Create an account as quickly as possible; in the forum society, seniority is quite important. Registrants with older registration dates are given higher priority than fresher users. Some forums even prohibit new users from posting for the first few days after signing up. This is to allow new users to become familiar with the topics and post styles before making useful contributions.

Make an effort to provide useful information to the forum community.
This is the single most critical factor in forum link development success. If a person asks a query pertaining to the specialty while keeping up with popular issues, astonish them with incredibly beneficial answers. Users must feel confident that they can return to a trustworthy profile for more relevant information and to find common ground with other forum members. These circumstances provide opportunities to demonstrate competence in a certain sector while also generating goodwill. Validate supplied advice/answers using links to credible sources, and respond immediately to follow-up queries.
