Thread: Forum Signature Links Vs Blog links

    Forum Signature Links Vs Blog links

    I have a doubt which i need cleared. Not considering the PageRank, do you think it makes a difference in having a backlink(do-follow i.e.) either in forum signatures or in blog comments??
    Do both serve the same in SEO or one of them is better?? Clarifying again, 'not considering the PR' or 'both of them having the same PR'.

  2. Lots of factors are at play here
    1. What is the PR of the forum or blog
    2. How may outbound links are present
    3. What status does the search engine apply to the forum/blog - ie. is it spammy?


    I'm sure there are others.

    My sites: Obtain a cash advance | Sound Unsound

    I think forum signature links are very helpful cause there is a huge possibilities to have a lot of inbound links from forum signature links. And you can also get fresh unique contents from forums.

    I do believe that in today's google environment that to have a link in a blog post is the best.
    Not in the sidebar, or as a comment, but actually in the blog post.

    Forums, I am leaning more towards the links IN a thread and not the links in a signature file are more worth in google's world.

    Just look at searches and see more and more posts with a link showing up.

    Exactly. Add the word "related" to blog post or forum thread. The link must look natural. Google has made it clear that excessive links from unrelated sites are a potential target. That would mean signature links. I suspect that they do not affect a site until they reach a certain threshold percentage of the total links to a site.

    I never get a lot of traffic from blogroll links, even when the blogs have a high amount of traffic. But some of the best traffic providers are indeed links people have given me from their own blog posts and links from people sharing my articles in forums.

    But you still lean towards promoting your forum signature links it seems.

    So do I. And every once in a while someone clicks But 99% of my forum traffic does come from particular posts where someone referenced me. Mostly in forums where I am not even a member (nor would want to be)

    Yeah. I agree with KMRock. As long as you have an active link to your site from that blog or forum, it will greatly help you in your link building. But honestly, some boards greatly consider this stuffs as spam.
