Be careful of the Internet Marketing Blogs.
Make sure your website is being seen on relevant Blogs and Forums!
There are so many scams out there you would think that someone is actually trying to make money without providing a service. That is exactly the case.
First of all you need to make sure that any and all campaigns you begin don’t market your website in unrelated locations. We have seen sports websites getting marketed on sewing forums for example. Just think of a website as unrelated as possible to your business and then imagine a scenario where you pay someone $1500 to make sure your website is listed on every irrelevant website and forum possible. This is what they do. They go out and automate posts in newsgroups and forums for the only purpose of getting you backlinks.
HINT: Blogs are not effective if your link is buried in the middle of discussions which aren’t related to your website.
