Digital Point Forums (DP)

It’s hard to believe, but the main page of digitalpoint.com is looking exactly the same as at it did 8 years ago.

digital point is a software company that I guess until 2004, when they’ve launched their forums on February 2004, had their main source of income from developing servers, file handling & ISP Billing software.

In 2004 they’ve launched their (what a surprise!!) phpbb based forums on http://forums.digitalpoint.com with a few rooms only dedicated to their software support and discussions only.

Less than 1 month later, digital point had realized the potentional in the web & search engines and changed their design & rooms to all SEO & Webmastering rooms.

digital point forums are by far the most populated, rewarding SEO Forums today.

With as many as 31 main rooms and 53 sub-rooms DP can be the place to discuss any topic you have in mind.

What is nice about DP is that you have the opportunity to make money just by posting in their forums. After entering you Google adsense code in your profile, you will make a certain percentage of the revenue each page makes through clicks.

Also if you’re looking for SEO Benefits from participating in forums, digital point has a few as well – In your profile you can fill in your blog name & rss address and a link with your last post title will appear at all of your posts under your handle.

Also each can promote his sites in the signature links and even have affiliate links in the signature if he wants to – something most SEO Forums forbit.

Submit Express

Started at 1999 as a simple submit to search engines service, submit express were one of the 1st to discover the potential in search engine optimization.

By 2002 they already ran an affiliate program and were still leading the search engine submission niche with a promise to submit to over 75,000 search engines, directories & links pages – 1 URL submission cost only $25, not too bad!

By 2003 they introduced a serious of SEO Tools including: keyword density, SERP checker and Link Popularity tool and meta tags generator (which were pretty popular at the time).

It was only in October 25th 2005 that Submit Express had decided to launch their phpbb based Forums to public, after testing them for 3 months at the address of http://www.submitexpress.com/bbs.

Submit Express forums are dealing with Search Engine Optimization, the main subject of their work for the last 7 years, but they also have 1 forum room dedicated to other webmastering related subjects.

Submit Express Homepage has a Google PageRank 7 which lead to a PageRank 6 for their forums homepage.

By now they’ve reached 12,966 members and over 14,200 articles.

As far as positioning for their forums in Google, they currently have no improtant achievements and are basing their traffic from people visiting the submitexpress homepage, specific searches that appears in their threads or by links from other websites.

SEO Chat

SEO Chat forums are located at http://forums.seochat.com and currently hold the following statistics:

  • Google PageRank: 6
  • In Bound Links: 1,960 according to Google
  • 67,500 Pages indexed by Google.

All of these, along with the huge amount of useful SEO Tools and SEO related articles that can be found on the SEO Chat Home Page at http://www.seochat.com (Google PR 7), are making it one of the largest SEO communities.

SEO Chat rooms are ofcourse discussing only on SEO related topics, but yet response time to a thread can take more than a few hours, depending on the topic.

In the past SEO Chat rooms were much more active, but due to a drop in the value of signature links (adding rel=”nofollow” tags to all OBL) many users had stopped their visits there and past on to other SEO Forums which rewards you for posting.
