    Sure forums as Qdoos helps me learning seo and not only (even php, Cpanel, marketing and so on), but the best part is that usually on a forum you post a question and receive tons of answer with several points of view from the same problem, so you will have more than one possible solution (it doesn't happens with a standard support ticket as example).-

    Do you find though that some questions just never get answered straight, like the "experts" really dont want you to know?

    Hi midlandi,

    If you are webmaster or working as an SEO, then these following points can definitely make your mind to have your profile in an online forum -

    1. Lots of knowledge sharing ? That?s for the prime objective of a forum. There are lots of topics / issues which makes people crazy in search engine optimization and internet marketing. Nowadays, Search engines, especially Google would change its algorithm and making updates very frequently. And, by the forums are a good place to keep yourself updated with these sudden updates and algorithm changes.

    2. Website reviews ? In SEO forums, you could definitely get a section called ?Website Reviews? where you can ask other webmasters to review and constructively criticize your website. You can easily understand how useful it can be for a SEO / Webmaster. You can easily get many of good as well as points where your site is lacking. And this could be very helpful in making a better website for the web.

    3. Lots of backlinks ? Almost every forum has a signature feature for their members to put their favorite websites. And whenever you post, that signatures would be attached along with it. By this, you can also collect many back links from the forums.

    4. Community Recognition ? If you are a member of the SEO forum, this is obvious that you will be recognized as an SEO then.

    5. Business ? Sometimes, you can also get business from the forums, if you get recommendations by other members.

    SEO forums are important to increase your knowledge and be aware on new trends and techniques. It is also a good place to discuss and solve your site problems with other SEOs.
