Letting people link back on your forum in signature a plus or minus long term?

    Letting people link back in the signature a plus or minus long term? I bet this site just loves to find the quality links in the signatures here and back link them to increase rank and new keywords all the time am I right? I also bet alot of these sites in the signatures that are not doing so hot must be hurting this site also? Would google frown on this activity? The reason I am asking this is because I am itching to remove the rules ban on my forum at chilltoday.com of posting a signature??? The forum is brand new and just one part of the site. I want to figure this out before it bites me in the butt. PS looking for Mods also.

    Generally this will also encourage more users to sign up with you and become active within your forums.

    I guess signature will only send you more traffic than a backlink..
    But definitely it will be added as your backlink.. because once I checked my site backlink I can see a lot of backlink in DP.

    I do agree that a good linking in the signature will give a great help for explanation and communication.

    A forum signature is a plus and it will help your site one way or the other.

    I personally recommend putting no follows in the forum links - it reduces the time wasted on the management of spam posts and ensures you don't link out from your site to somewhere "bad" in Google's eyes

    Yeah. One of the reason why people joins forum especially for seo, is to gain backlinks.
