signature links:

Hi folks

one of the ways I been shown to get more targeted traffic to my site is the use of a signature at the end of my posts

I understand that my posts should contribute to the discussion

the questions I have are...

this really a good way to generate traffic ?

what results are you getting ?

how many posts a day do you do ?

does this have anything to do with search engine positioning ?

Look forward to your reply's

As far as search engine positioning, that entirely depends on if the forum is SEO friendly or not. Sometimes it counts and sometimes it doesn't.

This isn't by far the best way to generate traffic but it also isn't the worst and every little bit counts. As long as you don't spam the board with useless posts, it would be foolish not to have a link in your signature as long as forum rules permits it.

If you post useful, helpful notes that answer people's questions or solve a problem then your signature can be a great way to guide them for more information.

Just make sure your sig matches the needs of the forum. A link to a site about 'Hawaiian Vacation Sites' probably wouldn't get as much traffic from this forum as a site about 'Investing' or 'Working From Home' because the people here are primarily looking for info on finances.

I agree that it helps to build a decent reputation and yes it does work. I have been posting off and on for many months here and received some excellent contacts from it.

Hi there,

this really a good way to generate traffic ?
To generate good consistent traffic to your site requires a combination of many things. And signature links are certainly one of them. Always include your signature in your posts but don't put too much information.

what results are you getting ?
From experience, signature links generate a good traffic. But this depends on the quality of your post as well. Don't just post for the sake of putting the signature links. It won't work that way.

how many posts a day do you do ?
Depends on the nature of your business, if your market hungry for information, then you need to post at least 5 a day. This includes replying to members posts as well.

does this have anything to do with search engine positioning ?
Not really. Signature links with forum don't get picked up by the search engines.

Hope this helps!
Alex

Sadly there seems to be a trend for forums to go sigless.

It isn't like anyone has to click on a sig link.

Thanks Andrew for keeping this a sig friendly forum.

I had 11 people register on one forum in a months time from sig links and adverts in advert sections. 20 people joined Link Referal the first month I promoted it. Don't always track stuff like I should. 12 new people joined my Lotto Magic team last month. I only know where 2 of those joined from.

When I ask people which forum they joined from they usually say they

A can't remember
B Money-talk.org which is part of why I'm such a posting pig here
C A whole bunch your everwhere I go. This is part of why I joined 100 new forums in 100 days. To prove that you can find all sorts of forums if you want to find them.

More people join from forums then traffic exchanges. However, one of my top downline members joined from a traffic exchange. I actually went on my traffic exchange binge when a downline member had some sucess with auto surfs.

Like my PE teacher use to say, "The harder I work the luckier I get"

Signature links do not get picked up by search engines but forums do. I have seen some posts that I have made about products in Google search results and this will lead to traffic from you signature.

Another site that Google is starting to like is Yahoo Answers. I have also seen my posts in Google for certain keywords.

I have heard that a lot of forum posting can increase your link popularity. It is more important to make quality forum posts and build relationships and trust with the other forum members. This will lead to more people clicking on your signature and maybe buying from you.

Not true.

Signature links may or may not be picked up by search engines, depending on if the forum operator allows these links to be seen by guests. Search engine bots will see a forum like a guest.

Use to be easy to find sig link friendly forums. It would be nice if when we do searches we could screen out forums that are sig link unfriendly.

If you don't think signature links in forums work, just do a search for Oldbuddy and see what you get!
