    You can send people to your site if you post the link in your comment, there is not problem with that.

    If you need some advice from the members here or you need to show something to everyone here, posting a link to your site would be beneficial to you and to those who are willing to help you.

    In this forum there is a section called REVIEWS where you can ask people to go and have a look
    at your site or anything else.

    Remember one thing.

    Don't post links that send people to your site all the time, everytime you make a
    comment.

    The idea is to provide value to the community here. Posting links to your site everytime you write a comment is not a good thing to do in forums.



    I hope that helps a little bit.

    Hi,
    Forum signatures can actually hurt your site rather the help you rank higher.Latest Google Algorithm updates (known as Penguin,Panda updates) devalued them.Try to get links from forums but they should be inside threads content.

    firstly,most of the good forum comments are nofollow.It is good to have a mixture of nofollow and dofollow links, only make sure that your comments are in your blog's niche. Don't spam!

    And be careful about giving attention to the rules of forums because most of High PR forums dont allow self promotions and you would end up being a spammer and get banned.....

    I dont think so Google latest updates have stated any where about devaluing forum signature because through signatures only my WordPress themes website have achieved rank.

    Forum signature works but if you put link that is related to forum answer.

    If you put links that suits the question asked then forum signature will help you in getting backlinks!

    Hi,
    I made a thread about that: https://forums.digitalpoint.com/threads/how-to-optimize-your-site-like-a-seo-professional-24-02-2013.2638961/
    Links are only 10% of ranking factors now,maybe less.You can see many PR1 website on top of Google for highly competitive keywords.This is because now quality of the websites is more important than backlinks.Google bot using more than 200 factors to rank a website and only one of them is backlinks.So if you made a nice website with valuable content,Google will award you with good rankings.Do not fool yourself that forum signatures are the reason.Few forum sig. can probably help you a bit for long tail keywords,but in general if you build hundreds,thousands of forum signatures you can have effect near to 0 (or even negative one).The latest Google updates are focused in this direction.
    Mutt Cutts (Google Spam team leader and spokesman) speak about that is his blog.In short:
    If you have 2 sites - site A and site B,targeting same keywords.Site A has a great content and user experience but no links.Site B is crappy,has poor navigation and structure but thousands for spammy links (e.g. blog comments,forum sign.).Google will always rank site A better. (i mean if other ranking signals for both sites are same,e.g. age,autorithy..)

    Great advice.... Forum signatures are becoming spam now-a-days and it is better to stay far away from them, a good forum is always an exception. But since there are a lot of other ways to get quality backlinks from, why to waste our time in Forums and stuff.
