There are many ways to earn money online, and paid forum posting is one of the quite quiet but simple and effective ways of earning money using the Internet. Being paid to post in online forums is quite a hard job to find using the Internet, but recently it is becoming more popular then it has ever been.
Paid forum posting involves using a specific online forum which you will log in to and then start posting messages related to the topics being discussed on the forums. Most forums now a days have a space for a signature which will appear below any posts you make when using that forum. In this space you can advertise websites and things, and this is why it is desirable to make lots of posts on a forum; inevitably more people are going to see your forum post and your signature advertisement.
By paying people to post on Internet forums, they are being able to advertise their websites to a broad range of people, and usually these people will be interested in the websites listed in the signature. For example, if I owned a dog related website, I could pay people to post in an online dog-owners forum as this is a market which is bound to be interested in seeing my dog website.
Another positive reason for having someone posting on forums with your website link in their signature is that the search engines will probably pick up a lot more back links to your website. A back link is a one way link, and if the search engine is able to find and search the pages of a forum and manages to find hundreds of links to your website, it will probably do it a lot of good in the search engine rankings. Also, if someone is posting on a forum with your website in their signature and they are talking about something specific like “how to earn money online from paid survey sites” and your website has a link to a paid survey site or something related, if the search engine is able to pick up on this then in a few weeks time you might start getting more topical visitors to your site. Someone might search Google for the exact same term; “how to earn money online from paid survey sites” and low and behold the forum message is listed in the search engine results, which will include a link back to your own website.
When being paid to post on forums, you have to be careful not to appear too obvious, or as a scammer. Some forums don’t take kindly to someone new joining a forum and posting hundreds of pointless and random forum messages, all of which contain a link to their “employees” website in their signature. This happens lots with people who are paid per post made, who obviously want to earn as much money as possible with minimal effort. If being paid to post on web forums, try and show more respect and answer topics with some of your knowledge if possible. Don’t bother posting a message just for the sake of it; you might not get paid at the end of the day, and you might not get asked to post on forums again.
Usually with paid forum posting you can earn around 10pence per post made, or some people prefer to pay you around £10 per 100 posts completed. You will probably have to keep a track of all threads that you post messages in, so make sure you do so in Notepad or something similar. The hardest part of paid forum posting is actually finding someone willing to pay you to post in forums, but when you do it is well worth it – especially if its on a forum related to a topic you enjoy.
