    Good job. Also explore some other backlinking avenues like social bookmarking, article marketing, guest posting, etc.

    A signature link is usually a good idea for SEO.

    Nice stuff! Yes we're getting more value by signature links.
    You can add: article, book marking, blog and directory linking as well.

    Putting a signature link will not contribute much on the traffic. Your time and effort would be the key things to get huge traffic. Hence you need to participate in all discussions.

    just leave comments that are related to that particular blog and to your niche. Avoid leaving one sentence posts. In forums, yeah it is good to have your signature while you are participating in a forum. Just don't post spammy replies.

    Diversify! Forum profiles and blog comments (high pr pages mainly) are good ways to get backlinks but you should get a little of everything. Forum signature, Web 2.0, Articles, Linkbacks, etc. to be really effective.

    Post relevant replies and new threads relevant to the questions and forums to avoid spamming. For SEO of your websites you should also get backlinks from other sources like article directories, social bookmarking etc.

    An often overlooked benefit to forum posting is the amount of traffic you can generate from the posts themselves. This is, in my opinion, the fastest way to build a pretty targeted list at no cost. Posting for an hour or so each day at a handful of active, niche related forums can build a good sized list in no time.

    blog commenting is very hard IMO. Even if you make it relevant and a great post sometimes blog owners don't like you to link to your blog with keywords at all. And with a click of the button on wordpress can report you as a spammer. A few times of that and you are then not able to blog comment on blogs using askismet. So, it is hard and each blog owner has their own thoughts on what spam actually looks like! I would find other ways to find back links and use all of your options including the commenting. good luck.

      Those strategy is proven that gives backlinks to our sites. It's just we must put the links of our site intelligently and in a nice manner to not consider it as a spam. On Blog commenting, you must first make sure that your comment is related to the topic of the blog. Other one is take a look on other comments if they allowed to put a link to it. If not just put the link on your name. On the Forum posting, yes it's advisable to have your signature a link. Also put your link to your profile on the website text box.

Beside that you will get back links for your site as if you are putting the signature. You need to understand, In the SEO world there are a lot of methods to get the back links for your site.

      Congratulations on your website. It's good to hear you're starting to venture out.

      Don't worry about putting signature links on your posts. It's only fair that you do and like what they say, it helps you more in generating traffic on your site.

      About the kind of posts you'll be leaving? Don't try to involve any black-hat methods with it. Just go with the natural ones and always make it about the topic. You don't really need to research that much as to what the topic on the forum you're posting is about. You just have to make it look natural and sound like you're interested in talking with the people there.

    I would vote for Signature Links on the Forums. Some forums may have a cap of 15-20 posts, before you can include your signature links in your posts.

    Blog commenting has become more popular in today’s world and it helps to increase traffic and improve search engine ranking of websites.Blogging helps people to share ideas and views with others,post some new information which is not added in the article and paves the way for discussions,etc.While posting we add our name and URLs that helps us in creating back links.

    Just ensure that the post provides value to the reader, imagine you as the reader, and what kind of comment/post you would like to read so much that you would visit the site in the signature to find out more

    I would join a leading forum related to your website and post useful, real, information on there, answer peoples questions and build yourself a reputation as an expert in your field. Have a signature with a link to your site with the anchor text you want and Google will reward you for providing good content. Spamming in random forums may work for now in some cases, but eventually Google will tighten their algorithm more and more and you'll suddenly be left behind.

    absolutely it is a good idea to promote your website via your signature link.if you wanna to make your site visited by warrior members, then you should just post nice contents regarding your site issue. post relevant post of your site. do not start spammy thread. if you do it, people will spam your website. discuss various problems and future development of your site.

    be sure that people will help you and will visit your site too.

    thanks a lot.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you post relevant content on forums. The purpose of posting on forums is multiple, but primarily you are trying to establish a relationship with people on the forum.

    IM is about building businesses, not getting rich quick. You build business by servicing a need better than other people. Figure out the need and contribute to the forum in a positive, informative way otherwise it will be construed as spam (like a lot of the posts on this thread).

    For what its worth, I have a PR5 blog, and I will approve any comment that is OBVIOUSLY related to topic. I don't generally allow "Great posts", or "Thanks". If you are going to say "Great Post" you need to add why and tie in something that lets me know you read the article. If you DO type relevant comments, I accept it and allow links.
