Links in Signature
« on: 05-23-2010, 17:04:34 »
I've been forum hopping and I've come across a lot of people trying to signup for forums just to try getting signature backlinks. I just wanted to put my view of signature links out there for those people.
Signature links have a very, very small affect on rankings. The amount of value in a signature link isn't worth the effort of going on to a forum with intentions of just getting a backlink out of it. I would rather have 1 good backlink from a non-forum site than 100 signature links, but people do occasionally click on signatures, which turns those signatures into a traffic source.

Hey though I am agree with you, but if we regularly go for the submissions in the forum then the signature back links will provide great help. All the reply we post in the forum is count as the individual link so if I have two link in my signature and post 5 reply then I will get 10 back links. 8) Isn't that great?

Signature links are own promotional links and are easy to get. They are not the sorts of links that are editorially given, so are likely to be valued low, if at all, by search engines anyway.

the same could be said for blog commenting and article distribution. however a lot of people will argue that these are good ways to create back links to your site, from relevant high PR sites which in turn can help increase your website PR. this advice is always given to newbies, so who do you believe?

Forum marketing offer's the same environment that social sites offer and what the consumers are now demanding; more personal and interactive relationship with the businesses they deal with. Like social networks, forums gives voice to the consumer.

Signature links really help you with the link juice. Don't think that by their means you will get direct traffic because you'll end up disappointed!

That strategy I think is very common :) I think all SEOs here did that already :) Tell me if I'm wrong.
