  1. The forums idea is very good. It is obvious, but lots of people forget to put their website link in their signature. You can easily have 1000 posts on a large forum, which would mean you’d have your link in over 1000 places. Plus, forums have great Click through rates, since people want to see what sites you like, what you work on etc
