Whoa there. Do you mean
"Is it possible?"
or do you mean
"Is it a good idea?"

No it's not a good idea to post on every forum and every category, you need to post on related blogs and forums. To build links properly, you need to create value for the person reading to forum or blog. You need to stay on topic on the right forums or on the the right blog. For example, your education website, could be linked to a mommy blogger, by commenting on a post about educating children etc.
Hope this helps

So YOU'RE the one! :)

I'd forget forums if you're trying to get strong links. These days, a forum that will allow new members to drop links to their sites is probably not rated highly by Google.

And as for blogs, most of these use 'nofollow' for comments so you're unlikely to get much if anything from that activity either.

A good principle with links is that the easier they are to get, the less they are probably worth.

Travel can be very competitive and you're going to need to stand out.

You say you're new to this, so before you do anything that might harm your site or waste your time, I'd take some time to learn about the type of links that Google will hopefully reward and about the type that they will ignore or even punish you for.

Reading through the Library should give you an idea of link-building as people here believe it should be practised; things to do, things to avoid, and hopefully ideas and inspiration that will get you started.

Once you start reading you'll notice that most of it is based around content that people find useful, interesting, amusing, contentious - anything that stimulates a response.

Agreed, it's bad. A link is a citation. A citation is defined as "...A quotation from or reference to a book, paper, or author, esp. in a scholarly work."

A citation is freely given. So YOUR job is to think of a way to get someone else to cite your website from their website. At it's most basic you are providing them a reason to link to your site by their own choice, without any compensation or any other consideration. At this time, with your level of knowledge, anything else will get your site penalized.

How to get links from travel related websites


The answer is still the same. YOUR job is to think of a way to get someone else to cite your website from their website. At it's most basic you are providing them a reason to link to your site by their own choice.

Take a look at the kinds of sites you'd like to get a link from. See what sites they're linking to. Become what they're linking to.

Good luck!
;)
