Do Forum Signature Links increase your SERPs?

I'm curious if getting forum signature links from here will actually increase your SEO/SERPs on search engines? Does anyone have any experience with this?

Yes, forum signature links improve SERP position, however it is better to get signature links from threads with a PR.

Obviously this was back early in 2012 and 4 years have passed since and things have changed a bit. Forum signature links don't provide as much value as they used to do because forums took a big whack in the SERPS since and no longer provide as much value. That's not to say they can't still be valuable and improve your SERP ranking but only when used in conjunction with other link building methods too. If you're building backlinks with forum sigs only that is going to stand out like a swollen thumb. I used to get good results from using forum sigs and buying them on established forums but only really for the traffic they could provide not so much for the ranking effect. That's another way that buying forum signature links can be effective but it depends if your link/anchor in that sig is relevant to the forum or not and whether the user is posting or not. Obviously if it is, more people are going to click on it and if the user is posting regularly on that forum it's going to show up a lot more in the most active threads not just old threads they'd commented in which will send you more traffic. But you should use them alongside other good SEO methods as well so that it doesn't look so blatant. That's just something to think about when you are thinking about whether or not you should buy them.

Forum signatures increase the SERP of your website. However, the forum you are using to build backlinks must be ranked better than your website or is a high authoritative site. Furthermore, the forum and your blog should be in the same niche. There is no point on linking your gaming website to a health niche forum. You also need to be active on the forum where you have used your website link as a signature.

When you say backlinks the effect is not quick that sometimes you will feel that it has no effect at all. From a popular forum like this one the backlink will be potent with the search engine but there is no specific time that it will take effect since it will depend on the crawlers of search engines when they will see your backlinks. But once the crawlers have checked on this forum then there will be an increase in the ranking of your site.
