Still okay to link from a forum site like warrior forum?
It used to be a good source of backlinks until Google changed its rules. I hear people saying links from forums via a signature still helps, while others caution us not to..
As a person starting out and in need of more traffic while waiting for Google ranking, can we still participate in forums and have people coming to our sites via a forum signature?
To the SEO experts here, I'd like to ask if doing so will harm our site's ranking in the long run?
What if the forum I am linking from are related to my niche? Like for example, a link to a "make money online" site from a Internet marketing forum (Warrior Forum).
