    Cool way to make money with a popular forum

    www.physicsforums.com gets $100 a month on the forum of 10,000 threads, for each of 15 text links at the bottom of page page. If you have a popular forum I recommend trying this out, and soon I will be buying some backward links...

    Hmmm... not sure about this. It's just a feeling I have, that something like this could go tits-up very rapidly. Ideally I would still think it's better to build backlings from varied sources.

    I suppose it's a good initial investment in a site though, to instantly have PR and traffic. Then that gives you time to get your site supporting itself, instead of having to pay for it.

    ... Just thinking out loud. Haven't really ever given it much thought.

    In my opinion it's a bit risky putting your links on there. Your effectively buying PR, although I can't say google would notice.
    Don't you just love free internet games ?

    Possibly more. I don't think googlebot is likely to crawl all 10,000 threads every month. So I would have thought you're paying for a good few that aren't even going to be noticed by google or contribute anything. By the time google has found your link in all 10,000 threads you could have paid anything from $100 to $300.

    Though, off-set that against the cost of a "potential" listing in the Yahoo directory and it may be worth it?

    Shawn's probably the best person to comment, as he's done it. It seems to have worked ok for him, at least for the time being.

    Physics Forums doesn't transfer anything more than PR6.

    I'm wanting a PR of 8 or above.

    Edit: Reasons are because I want to get my new site launched on valentines day into the top three google listings for music videos, which is searched for 8000 times a day. My domain is perfect for this keyword as well: http://www.music-videos.ws

    Can someone tell me how I can get such a high PR?

    Would buying a link of a PR9 site such as PHPBB.com get me a PR 8?

    No. Even if you could afford it.

    PR 8 by Valentines day? Impossible Maybe valentines day in about 5 years if you work hard! Sorry to sound so bleak, but as Chris says, a PR of 8 is extremely hard to attain.

    Not by valentines day. I am starting to get links then. That is the day the site opens.

    phpBB has a PR10, wouldn't you be able to get a PR8 (or high seven at least?) through that anyone?
