It's easy for somebody to click on a link they see in a forum signature -- for instance, when you read someone expressing an opinion, you might want to visit their site so you can get a better feel for their overall credibility and credentials before you decide to accept or ignore their post. But for someone who wants to generate conversions, that sort of traffic isn't exactly useful.

So good for you if you're getting traffic from forum signatures! But much more impressive if it's actually desirable well-converting traffic.

Can't agree more.

One of my friend running a mountain bike business website is active on several famous cycling forums in US and EU. He is active on those places, discussing products or cycling experience there.

The result? One third of his traffic comes from those forum.

It is a shame that he didn't track the conversion. But I think that kind of target traffic will help more or less
