    When I search the keywords manufacturer forum at Google.com, BAF rank at 2nd pages. Manufacturer forum is a niche market with high demand.

    Any more other manufacturer forum? I think most of the webmaster need it too, due to the demand of backlink from manufacturer site.

    Hmm. In my own opinion, if you cannot or still cannot find a forum that allows a signature link, then why not still register on that forum and build a decent profile for your products in there? I guess that would be allowed You may not be able to get a signature link (which is actually an extra benefit of joining to a forum) but you can build a reputation of your product on that forum through profiling and if you are successful in that one, you won't be needing much of that signature anymore since you are mostly benefiting from members visiting your profile page.

    You can recommend that to your client if ever you can't seem to find what you are looking for.

    Yes, there is an opportunity but manufacturing forum not easy to make it happening, and it require good knowledge to run the forum
