Hi all,

I've found some EXTREMELY authoritive sites in my niche that have forums and give do follow links after a certain amount of comments.

Assuming I place a relevant link on these forums whilst contributing with helpful comments, how good a link are these?

Weak, Medium or Strong?

      Agree with this. The value would be from an increase in traffic, not from the link quality.

  • Its like you are helping others what they need. Some people Spam while some people genuinely Help By giving them right Information with the link you provide. It If you do a relevant linking it can be Medium to strong impact for the user who come on your posts & finds the link. Who know he might share the link to the needy person.

    Forums links are not going effect your SEO. Most of the forums provide no-follow links and the least amount that do provide do-follow are of merely negligible link juice.

    As forums are created to helping each other with the related queries, you are doing so then it will
    definitely help you how?

    Your answers on the forums are valuable for someone who want the solution, he or she will read, like, share your post to others who also want same solution. They will follow you. In this way you are building the authority and reputation with your useful content. This way the trust value of your link in signature (same niche) is increasing.

    So, it is good to have useful content and niche users to increase traffic through forum activities.

      Technically speaking this is possible, but do people really share forum answers outside of that forum? It's very rare in my circles at least. People tend to link to a thread when the whole thing is funny. Two local forums are often shared because of hilarious trolling and absurd humor.

      This is not something that exists. Unless you're talking about mental notes that other users may have about you.

      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 the first part of your statement is true, the second part can't be.

      If the 2nd part of your statement is true, the 1st part can't be.

      Sit down to yourself, have a heart-to-heart, and decide on what is true, then come back. A bit of Zoloft might help.
