    Yeah, links from forums are valid.

    Forum links are basically no-follow in nature but there are few forums which provides do-follow. But those links passes no link juice. So they are never going to effect your rankings.

    Forums are a great way to drive traffic. In the end, if your content is that good, it may even impact your ranking if some people link to you.

    YES. Links on forum posting are valid. Just carefully READ first the forum posting guidelines before posting any comments. Some of the guidelines are strict, so you have to be careful enough. Other forum sites are accepting links when the user already contributed 50 posts or more. And also, when you put links, be sure that it is related or significant to the forum's topic. Like for example, the topic is all about the blog post for Mobile and then you suddenly put an unrelated link like clothing, real estate investment, etc., that’s really a bad point. Of course, links significant are blogs like How the Mobile Age is Changing the Way People Shop | SmallBizClub or Mobile Search, SEO / SEM News & Trends | Search Engine Land. Cautiously read the post and provide answers which are relevant.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.

      Traffic - maybe. Ranking - usually not. The links are supposed to have the rel="nofollow" attribute, so Google may devalue them even if they don't.

      No, it's not. At best you're getting Google bot to visit your page slightly more often.

    Yes, it is valid, but it should be from related forum as per your business. If you want to build the backlink from the forum. Set up a blog to your website and write the relevant content on it with proper anchor text. If you find any relevant thread covering the same topic, then at that time you can feature your link in that forum. It is one of the best ways to get the backlink from the forum

      Nope; Forum posting for links is spam and is more likely to hurt you than help you. They are the exact sort of links that Google meant for the Penguin algorithm penalty and will get you an unnatural manual penalty if they check!
