This is a pay membership forum that I’ve been using for a few weeks now. When I signed up it was $14.95/month, but I’m not sure what they’re charging now. They guys who run the forum are the Rhodes Brothers, and they sure seem to know their stuff when it comes to internet marketing. Plus they offer a no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.
The idea is simple yet very effective, in my opinion:
- Start a thread with details about your site that you want to generate more traffic to, containing:
- Other members then submit your site to social bookmarks (or other backlink sources), such as Digg, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Slashdot, Diigo, Google Reader, etc. etc. etc.
- You return the favor by doing the same when you see similar requests
This system is huge for building search engine credibility. It’s one thing to always just submit your own sites to social bookmarks, but if other people are also doing it, it helps that much more. Plus, the social bookmarking sites won’t be suspicious if you’re submitting many different links rather than your own repeatedly.
To be honest I wish the forum was a bit more active (ie. had more members). However, more and more folks are joining each day so I wouldn’t be surprised if the activity exploded soon.
If you’re interested, check it out.
