In forums i read different threads about forum posting, every one was saying that forum posting is not helpful for link building. I was still busy in building links through forum posting. Now i am happy that thanks god i did not stopped forum posting, because i got benefits.

No benefits for you here since you just posted copy and paste rubbish and got yourself banned. Rolling Eyes

Personally, I think the SEO benefits from forum posting are negligible at best. That said, I think they can have a slight bearing on things. More important, though, is what you post and whether you become a true member of a given community (unlike yourself in this instance).

Become properly involved, help people and post useful content, and you will reap rewards from any signature that you have.

I agree with Paul.

Sig links can be useful to make some new friends and contacts if you join in the community.

I would be glad if forum sig links were no longer useful for SEO purposes. Once the link building twits on quotas got that message then there would be a lot less forum spam to deal with. The people posting rubbish to meet their quotas just get banned anyway. They're wasting their time and ours.

In terms of actual link juice being passed through those links, I agree that the SEO value is negligible. But every link is a signal and links coming from a trusted and very busy source is are always good. There's also the benefit of having your sites crawled multiple times during the day as bots visiting busy forums can follow your inbound link.
