Discussion forums are websites on which that you can interact on to build up
your reputation as a figure of authority within your own industry.
One thing that you should ensure that you take advantage of is something called
a signature message. A signature message is a common footer, which appears at
the bottom of every post made on a forum. The great benefit of having a

website from these forums, the search engine optimization benefits are also
extremely valuable.
