    I get maybe 4 per day. There are forums where I have more posts but get more traffic (and they are no follow to search engines!)

    I average 3-4 a day even when I dont post anything for weeks at a time. I dont post alot to begin with and i dont want to violate any TOS by appearing to Spam. I guess what im curious about is if anyone sees a noticeable conversion from WF. Mostly what im getting is people scraping urls and spamming them. so im not sure if its worth having one of my sites linked in my sig because of the increase in spam..... any thoughts?

    Hmm, 3-4/day isn't very much. However, if you're in the IM niche, it could be targeted traffic... I'm also interested in seeing if anyone is getting WF traffic to convert.

    No idea, I never bother checking. I have had links up to something exclusive before that have only been in my warrior sig, and got traffic, so someone out there was interested.

    Well, I have about 4-5 clicks as well and a couple of sign-ups. But if I post more, I do get a bit more clicks and sign-ups. I don't know if it's really worth time and effort but one thing I do know is that you get a good link juice from WF. : )

    Oh, one more thing... when you're selling WSO, it's a good method to use if you have a lot of posts elsewhere in WF.

    I'm not sure if its because of the word "sexy" down there, but I have about 25 clicks a day.

          OK im trying your method pls note the changes to my sig I will report back with results In a day or so. If the outcome is drastic then perhaps we should begin talks about a JV for a super SEXY wso

              we will have to see if this is the tweak that makes all the difference!

              I was talking to mainstreetcm yesterday about how it seems that most internet marketers are men and that in order to "captivate" my audience i should provide something that is visually appealing to them. now i know there are plenty of women marketers out there so perhaps i should incorporate a few Chipendale's rolling around in a pile of cash as well

              as for the adsense its above the fold and needs to be clicked!
              you clicked right????
              actually im running a test on hoplinks vs adsense and will prob do away with adsense altogether based off what im seeing so far.

    Yep, That's what I would do....NOT! You will end up attracting the wrong crowd if you
    know what I mean. Yes sexie gets searched alot in the SE's but I'm nearly sure it's not
    the targeted traffic you're really looking for.

    Stick with a witty straight punch style in targeted forums. Some times sigs of the
    nature that you are trying work and other times they will back fire and bring the
    unwanted.

    This is a marketing forum and being straight forward goes a long way with people that
    have very little time to check out details.

    Hope that Helps,
    Have a Great Day!

      agreed
      but perhaps a mix does it not cause one to take pause for a moment when a Buzz word is placed in a phrase. And is it not that pause thats needed to to get the person to click?

    Here's my view from the other side of the coin.

    I tend to click quite a few links in sig's and end up going off all over the web as a result.

    Having been involved in IM for a number of years I have become a huge sceptic, due to the masses of scams and BS, so I have become good at spotting who is genuine through thier posts, when I find someone who is straight talking and genuine I tend to hold on to them real tight and actively search the net for things they have published (blog, site, products etc) and go through them.

    So you may only get 4-5 clicks per day but who knows what that 1 person has gone on to buy from you or will do in the future.

    Just my 2c

    Thanks

      great point andy!
      i currently do not use any of the sites i link in my sig to sell or even list build
      i mainly use it as a free info source on IM
      im the same way now that i think about it
      i currently only follow 3 im gurus
      and i found them all through sig files Oddly enough
      i guess as i build and grow my site im hoping that a level of trust will develop with my readers.
      i find the various ways people use their signatures kind of fascinating. and i pay attention to who and which ones i click on and what it was that made me click. i think its cool how creative people get with only five lines of sales copy~ cuz ya know thats what it really is.

    I do get quite some traffic from my signature links. Also depends on wording; how you post etc.

  • Profile picture of the author mainstreetcm
    Usually I just click the link at the bottom if it piques my interest. For example who isn't interested in making money while you sleep. So naturally I clicked that. I'm not really looking for new methods, but my curiosity is usually too great to not click lol...

    I get about 10 hits a day from my sig but I don't get much traffic elsewhere...it is more like something just there than actively promoting it. I do get the occasional comment and people message me after reading my blog so it does seem to attract the right people. Maybe I should say I comments aren't set to nofollow in my sig haha.

    I do not bother about signature traffic. Sometimes I do not add signatures. But, keep in mind that it is a targeted traffic.

      You are missing something great man. I post on several fashion message boards and the traffic I get for my sexy high heels website is insane. I'm talking like 400 uniques a month from the boards. It has saved my ass with adsense while I fight for my rankings in the SERPs...

      Do not underestimate the power of signature links, especially if your services involve internet marketing on an IM message board...

    hi Chris,

    Good question.. never really tracked it.. but I guess the
    more active you are on here the better. it would be interesting
    to 'test' things to see just how much traffic you can get from a sig.

      I agree with you perhaps rather than posting pictures of smoking hot girls on my "make Money" Blog maybe i should change my avatar picture to a smoking hot chick?

    The traffic to my WF signature varies from day to day, but I can tell you that I do get more traffic when I start a new thread that contributes value to the forum. For anyone in the IM niche, this is a great traffic strategy.

    Not only are you building immediate traffic, but you are also branding yourself online as someone to look up to within your niche.

    But if you are considering this strategy, do us all a favor and put some effort into it. When I start a new thread, I want to include something that I feel the vast majority of people are not aware of. If I can do this, I know that I become entrenched into a person's mind, and they will likely seek me out in the future (and sign up to my list).

    If you are going to get traffic from this forum (or any forum) you need to give your fellow Warriors quality content. Trust me, you will be rewarded!

      I don't get too many, but maybe it's because I tell people not to click it?

      Dan's content is irregularly read by handfuls of people. Join the elite few by reading his blog: dcrBlogs.com, following him on Twitter: dcrTweets.com or reading his fiction: dcrWrites.com but NOT by Clicking Here!

      Dan also writes content for hire, but you can't afford him anyway.
