    Question Popularity through forum links

    I noticed something a few days back while looking for my business name PrimaCognos. My site hasn't been indexed yet but I could still see a few results. The results came from the forum sites I visit often and which contain a link to my domain in my signature.

    I was wondering if this helps improving ranking once the site has been indexed.

    P.S. I do not spam forums for such popularity

    It will help but not much. The anchor text is nice but the PR is negligible (for most users). I wouldn't expect to see any real boost for any kind of competitive or semi-competitive terms.

    I think of forum signature links more as a source of direct traffic. Getting a little bit of a PR boost might happen, but don't expect it to make any big difference.
