    Rob, even if you try to engage with google, sooner or later they will kill your site. Remember what's happened to Will, and others members, me included?, there is no escape. Google wants BRANDS and BRANDS on there serp, they want to do alone what did the whole TV networks, selling brands ads, making tons and tons of money in advertising, look what they did with Youtube, you cannot watch something without ads.

    On the bright side the best thing that'd happen to forum discussions would be for Google to devalue forum links of every kind. Suddenly the conversations would be about the topic, not infested with me-too link-spammers. It'd throttle traffic in all forums at the same time, but they'd be better places for the loss.

    ADDED -- Of course even if they totally devalued forum links there's that contingent that still spam Dmoz like it's 1999... so I wonder how many years it'd take for them to figure out spamming forums is dumb?
    If it was only that "Google to devalue forum links", no no they want to penalize the forum links, that's different!


    Here are a few common examples of unnatural links that violate our guidelines:
    https://support.google.com/webmaster...er/66356?hl=en
    Forum comments with optimized links in the post or signature, for example:

    Thanks, that’s great info!
    - Paul
    paul’s pizza san diego pizza best pizza san diego




    Really it tooks more than 12 years for the google geniuses to say that, how it can be unnatural? "unnatural links that violate our guidelines"

    Are forum signature links being penalized by Google?

It is not only what has been done to destroy income producing opportunities, but also the diminished value of web sites and domain names, and the current sharp decline in demand for website building services. Meanwhile, these chuckleheads think they are cleaning up the web. Bwahahahahaha!
    You know, Smidt is attenting the globalist bildelberg group meeting every year, so it is not surprising that they implement their "bildelberg globalist suggestions" on internet to avoid and destroy prosperity to anyone, except to themselves and to their friend globalists.

    I did not know Smidt is a Bilderberger. That explains a lot of things. In order for the One World Order plan to succeed, the economies of both Europe and USA must be destroyed so that a new ruling power can rebuild the societies. This worked several times in the past: with Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etc.

    Just a few links so you can see how far the whole thing is about:

    Put simply, Bilderberg is merging with Google under the stewardship of Google CEO Eric Schmidt, a regular Bilderberg attendee.

    And the empire that says DO NO EVIL is damn evil aint it?

    Of course google wants to control everything they can, it means so much more money in their pockets.
    Plus of course, at some point with the right backing and enough cash, they can take over the internet finally.
    And all webmasters, companies, websites, will have to do it the google way or not be on the net at all.

    Be interesting to keep up on this subject of google and bilderbergs (gooberg, googleberg, bildergoo) in the next 5 years or so.

    On the other side of the coin, there must be some value in forum signature links or Google wouldn't be targeting them. The key it seems is not optimizing your keyword in the signature and varying the anchor text across forums.

    Maybe a forum signature spinner is needed?

    Monthly AW Stats from one of my sites:

    Links from an Internet Search Engine
    - Google 759 / 759
    - Microsoft Bing 150 / 150
    - Microsoft Windows Live 43 / 43
    - Yahoo! 31 / 33
    - Yandex 6 / 6
    - Baidu 5 / 5
    - Unknown search engines 1 / 1

    If you are moving away from big G, are you building an email list? Are you building your social media presence? Are you building brands?

    I am sure forum signature provides value. As always, if you are penalized because you optimized your keywords in anchor text. In fact any of your MARKETING is a threat to google, that's why they demote step by step the marketing you do, on site and off site.

    Hey that's fine if webmasters have doubts in what I said, but watch how google protect THEIR MARKETING:
