Once you reach that certain level of reputation in a forum, you will be allowed to add signature. A signature in a web forum is a kind of sign off that will automatically appear at the end of each post made by you. You can include backlink to your website in that signature so each time you will make a post; a live link is made to your website from that site. So, forums create backlinks in a big number easily as the more you post the more backlinks you make.
2. Forums are also used for direct marketing of products as you can market your products or product page in certain discussions where other users are asking for some good products and providers of certain kind.
3. Web forums can be used to gain direct as well as indirect traffic to your website. As many number of posts made by a particular user in a forum, he or she gains more reputation and other users check for links suggested by him.
So, all the above benefits have shown that a web forum holds an important place from the SEO point of view as it is a good source for backlinks as well as direct traffic.
