    I have searched for it but couldn't find satisfactory answer to my question about the validity and usefulness of forum signatures.
    If you put you site's link in forum signature and do comments with the signature, to what extent it really help site improvement ???

    hey signatures in forums make us to know about your site and if i had clicked it and make a view on it, it will drive a traffic to your site and it just pass over to all belongers about your site i.e, your sites info got spread through it

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't derrickfowler ask for a "satisfactory" answer? I doubt if this one applies. Is "belongers" even a word? The opinions expressed probably could have been separated into two, maybe three, sentences, and should have been more clearly expressed.

    Actually, no, it doesn't. A forum signature is automatically added to every post a member makes, and therefore has very little value to Google and the other major search engines. Based on my own personal experience, it also does not drive much traffic to your website.

    For me signature is like an ID or a badge of some sort. They don't really have any influence in SEO or increase traffic to a site, well maybe a little.

    We can only expected little referral traffic from signature. As for SEO, it only return minor effect on citation and link juice.

    Forum signature and profile links as far as SEO and SERP impact have been long antiquated as a viable method of improvement. Now, they are only useful for driving traffic from forums you frequent.

    I don't think so it is more helpful. Its depend on website. If site is about entertainment then it can get more traffic than other site.
