Do backlinks from Forums pack a punch ?
« on: 05-09-2010, 14:05:56 »
I always hear of people paying others to include their site links in forum signatures. It seems like a popular way of building links but does google and other search engines really take these types of links seriously. I mean they're not really proper backlinks but people do pay for them, so should i also be looking to build up links from forums by purchasing sigs.

Stats and real life examples would be helpful ?

Most forum sigs are rel="nofollow" so they won't really pass link juice, the few that do, well I think googles smart enough to figure out that these links aren't the best in terms of quality. However you maywell get traffic if your sig links are on a related forum to your niche.... That would help a little i guess.

They can do if they're relevant to your niche and rel="nofollow". I personally don't use them that much, but i guess for forum promotion I would.

A lot of people still pay to have their signatures posted on different forums. They can be extremely useful for link juice if you post them on relevant forums. Not only will it help you will it help you get some targeted traffic (if not much). But will help you optimize the website better.

People still pay a lot of money to have their sig posted in forums and if the forum is related to your website then it can be very useful for yoy otherwise  I don't think so.

I have found forum signitures to be useful every time I have placed in them in a related forum. However, It does require a lot of hard work it does pay off.

Link juice from a high PR blog or forum is good for your blog to boost your Google page rank. Specially, if you are active in a niche forum which allows dofollow backlinks, you will not only get a quality link to your site but you will also be getting targeted traffic.  8)
