    Glad you posted that. I think forums are too often overlooked and agree that they are a type of Social Media. Although they are generally specific to niche, they are a place where people gather to become a part of a community of like-minded people, exchange ideas and opinions, and make contact with others.

    What type of success are you looking for. Social media offers several different types:

    1. Success in building contacts
    2. Success in driving traffic
    3. Success in building a web presence.

    LinkedIn is best if you want to offer a product or service which suits professionals. For others products/services, Facebook and twitter are good to bring traffic.

    Does anyone have any reliable stats regarding how their links are received through forum posting?

    I ask because throughout numerous years I've never known a forum to drive through more than a few hundred visitors a month, and that's on a large site.

    Yes, forums are a part of social media. It'd be stupid to disregard forums as a way of reaching out. However, the only time I've seen forum posts even slightly work have been as a part of years of regular posting and based on a strong user base on both ends.

    Forum posts are only reliable returns if the poster is knowledgeable and the forum itself is in the same industry - I'm betting Paul O'B and Rudy (r937) get more than their fair share of traffic through their signatures based solely on the quality of their posts and their knowledge of the subject matter. If you're looking for a return when you're just making forum posts to random sites, then the return's going to be negligible at best.

    You might get some returns on "advertising" posts (if the forum allows them), but again, that's only going to work if the subject matter is of some interest to the community the forum supports. An advertisement post for a new baby food company will get a much better return on a "mommy blogger" centric forum than it would here. Likewise, a new PHP CMS product would get more return here (again if it was allowed here when it's not) than it would to a "mommy blogger" centric forum.

    It all depends on the audience. If it's relevant, it'll have a chance to work. Otherwise, it's just noise.

    thanks guys for reading my post, actually i really do agree that forums do great job in promoting or in generating traffic to a website as long as the registered users know how useful does forums are. so users must do this not for spamming purposes spammers should think that forums are not there for spam purposes but forum are built and developed to have an online community which main purpose is to have an interaction of same brands.

    again guys thanks, happy seasons to all...

    Social Networking sites nowadays are being used by different type of people for one reason they wanted to expose their products or services or maybe information by using these medium.

    Facebook Fan Page is proven to be effective driving customer to the website wherein all necessary information specifically well written.
    Google + on the other hand mistakenly ignored by some people who do not know the effectiveness and contribution to increase promotion of the article they wanted to market.
    Pinterest is the next big thing and should be taken seriously to help increase website SERP

    Can you tell us what about StumbleUpon sets it apart for you from the others you mentioned? It is a site I used to use regularly, but I've found a better following and easier to grow my circle of contacts at Facebook and Twitter. So, I'd really like to know what others are doing at Stumble Upon that makes it an equally or better spot to spend some time.

    @David kartik ; Each site has a help area that tells you how to get started and what the dos and don'ts of the site are. Surprising that you didn't know that already.

    StumbleUpon is a great place to participate and it can help a lot in increasing the traffic for website. Similar thing applies on Pinterest. The only thing that we need to keep in mind while promoting our website on these social sites is, you need to add good and relevant images to your posts. Also, if you are having a blog that is about general interests like gadgets, clothing and such stuffs, StumbleUpon and Pinterest can help a lot in getting traffic for your website. Just to make it more natural, participate genuinely rather than keeping promoting your own stuff.

    I have been using all the sites mentioned for years now apart from Google+ which is relatively new. I have been getting good traffic from LinkedIn and Facebook. But, Twitter and Google+ traffic is low. Can anybody suggest any possible reasons for this? <snip>

    All social networking websites are good at their place. You need to learn the way to use that social sites. Stumbleupon and reddit also good to drive traffic every website has different way to use. First read the rules and start spending time on them in a proper way. Facebook, twitter, Stumble, Linkedin, delicious, G+ and reddit they are really best.

    Using it for traffic for nearly a year now and still no satisfactory results. It's a nice item to have in your social media inventory, but not very helpful.
