Forum signature will play a large role in keyword ranking?
Not anymore, Google's changed their policy.
They have very little value, even not indexed. The era that a signature had "link juice" is long gone.
Sometimes yes and sometimes not. Because forum signature treated as spam too.
Depends on forum, but nowadays really hard to get backlinks from forum signatures
Not much, still the same - but through forum signature you it can help you brand your product / website - as well as keeping a good reputation among forum sites.
Agree with the above post. Forums signature are used for branding as well traffic.
Branding and direct traffic? Possibly, depending upon the forum. But that means you have to participate in the forum and be respected by the other users. Short, spammy posts will hurt your reputation, not enhance it. Attaching your brand to short pammy posts is a bad idea.
But the OP asked "Forum signature will play a large role in keyword ranking?" Absolutely not. It may actually even HURT your keyword ranking. After Google Penguin came out, many webmasters scrambled to remove those spammy signature length because it is believed that they can actually cause your ranking to DROP significantly.
maybe, but the traffic that it will bring to your site is absolute. Marketing is the best purpose of signatures today!
The purpose of being on a forum for marketers is targeted traffic as well as relationship building. Relationship building is the key to successful marketing. You signature is used to direct them to your offer or landing page.
I think forums are still helpful in getting backlinks and in other aspects like getting good traffic and keywords rankings. If forums have lost their reputation and importance none will see the signatures as well but i have observed the seo experts are still going towards forum signatures. The people only go for such things that have the demand.
If we assume about boost up for particular key phrase in search engine ranking then yes, forum signature plays vital role if we employ them in proper way without use of spamming.
The Panda would throw those links in the trash so no. Also, a lot of forums have made their links, especially signature links, nofollow.
This is why I no longer pay for signature ads. Besides them not being picked up by search engines, I don't think humans look at text links at all. Maybe an banner link, but definitely not a text link.
signatures are still helpful though.
Even I agree that forum signature let your brand to be known.Yes,they are more helpful!
y ai also agree now this time is very difficult to get backlink's.
Help to get ranking but will also need other contribution like social bookmarking,directory submission.
signature help's to improve your ranking and visitor's
I don't think forum signature could make contribution to keyword ranking. But sometimes links in forum signatures can be index by Google.
If you are a frequent poster on a forum, you will likely get quite a few click throughs via your signature link.
Forum signatures are not helpful only to improve search engine ranking but they can generate huge traffic if you post in a relevant forum.
