When posting to forums, learn which symbols mean a topic is “hot”, i.e. one that is viewed and commented on A LOT. It might be a picture of a piece of paper on fire, or even the word “HOT” to the left of the title of the post. Commenting on these topics will get your posts seen more often than posting anywhere else in that forum.
Another tip…some forums (like one I discovered tonight), actually tell you how many people are viewing that topic RIGHT NOW. Go there – post, comment, participate. That will get you noticed.
Come back and tell us how that worked for you. We want to know!
