    Signature links in forums are one of the most effective ways of building your website’s link popularity and "back link count." It is believed that websites with signature links in forums will gain back links more quickly when compared to other, similar websites. Most major Internet search engines value forum content and forum signatures, although to what extent; no one is absolutely certain.

    whoever says that forum sig is a waste of time then maybe they need to read the books again.
    Forum signatures is one of the best in link building, you gather traffic and backlinks through them just be sure that you have good quality posts...

    I find it useful. Lot's of people follow the links in the signatures if your signatures are related to the discussion going on.

    sig. links works,but only if you have many from different forums.If you have 3000 links from 2 forums-waste of time.100 links from different forums-good SEO

    In my experience, you want to gain links directly to the niche of the forum that you want to rank for. Deep links/ signature links are critical for obtaining ranking for the keywords that you are optimizing for your internal pages. Signature links have big advantages.I hope that helps.
    All the best!

    Forums signature links are decent way of SEO 'for free'. Especially dofollow forums with nice PR like this one.

    I don't use signature links for SEO purposes. I like them for the traffic. I'd still post to this forum even if they made the links nofollow. In fact, I wish they would make the links nofollow so all the spam posts would go away.
