How does the links in the signatures useful for SEO? Is it Good, Bad or Ugly? Many forums do provide this option and let's say if i have 1000 posts then i would have ended up making 1000 backlinks.

    Overdoing it is the problem, you want quality over quantity.
    Don't go signing up for every single forum you can and get forum profile/sig links. It's all about quality. even is they are nofollow, they do have a little bit of value.

    Signature links are utterly useless for anything other than direct traffic.

    If you can create link on do-follow forums then It can help you to improve your ranking. Signature link is also useful to get direct traffic.

    You'd have thousand backlinks, but each one of them is worth zero. 1000 x 0 is still 0.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

      If you want to rank fast you should get good backlinks. Not some crappy forum links.
