    Actually, it's not easy to tell. I'm not sure if a signature link from a webmaster-related forum will help a website in, say, the real estate or the religious niche, for example. My website is in the latter, and I removed my Digital Point sig links quite a while ago.

    Forum signature still play the important role in SEO and yes you can put your signature into your post. Many forums have some rules regarding signature and according to that rule you have to create your signature and use them.

    There are many benefits of forum posting...
    • Increase Traffic of your website
    • Dofollow link help to increase PR of the website Branding
    • Backlink to your website

    Forum signature is effective if the forum has follow configuration but Matt Cutts said that both nofollow and do follow links are effective but if you do it in massive way then it can hurt you. As well as Signature within forum google consider it as natural link.


    Good Luck... :)

    Yes as per my knowledge & experience I would say forum signature links do help in SEO , provided the website link in signature is more related to the content / niche of the forum
    Ex:
    Real Estate website link as signature in a Real Estate or Property related forum would be beneficial

    Hope you understand.

    You do realize that signature links here at DP will NOT help one bit in your SEO.

    Thats a load of nonsense! If you added the link --> ITS NOT NATURAL!

    Well it didn't work for me. Most forum sites already made signature no-follow so it doesn't pass any link equity too.

    Forum signatures or other links are still effective for LINK-THROUGH or direct targeted traffic, not for Google (though it might be good for other search engines like Bing/Yahoo). If you pick several forums or groups related to your niche, especially highly trafficked sites, you should get lots of targeted visitor traffic trickling in to your site.

    Works for me as well! I don't do it for the purpose of seo I do it to help people in the forums. If you are active then you can built yourself a name and a list!

    YES, Signature for forums still works good, Some people use the signature link for many keywords, Multiple keywords for multiple links, I think one keyword for link is good to get traffic.

    The biggest benefit to forum links is the relevant traffic, which can then turn into high quality links. But if you can find relevant, dofollow forums.. then yes, those will work!

    It's not so effective as it was a few years ago, but as long as the niche is similar and of course you don't spam, your website can receive little link juice! And don't receive many backlinks per day (10 is a good amount of backlinks per day, but don't go with 200 for example per day!) ;)

    Not too effective any more, and sometimes they can be considered as spam links.

    How can the search engines see them as spam?

    You should not be going around parroting what others say.
