No, you're right tchoob, on page content is taken into account when determining theme but - we're fairly certain the text around the link is also evaluated and given additional consideration.

Makes sense if you think about it. Links carry people away from a page so the text around the link can be a "build-up" or introduction to the link and what a person may find on the page they click to.

For optimal influence, use associated keywords around your keyword anchors.

Very helpful guys, thank you! I just found out about making the link keywords, so recently changed. I will change again and include two links, with different keyword sets perhaps.

Thanks!

Are all signature links worth the same?

If you have a signature in a topic relevant to your business or offer that starts with a good relevant title and contains good solid content this will/might/could develop a 'page ranking' itself and thus improve the value?

Now I am not saying that is the case (I don't have the ability to check or prove it) but I get the impression from the range of checkers I have used that some of the signature links I have are worth more than others coming from the same domain.

It will have an impact if a passerby on your website checks your signature link.

Per person that passes by and clicks your click=1 point. Magnify it to at least a 1000 a day and I'm sure at least 1 will click that.

IF you produce a great content, a link back to your site will be an enticing link to click by the page viewer.

Default Signature Links

What I noticed about signature backlinks is that they are all no follow. I was investigating our competitors, who have a lot of such links. Not sure exactly what no follow means, but as far as I understand to the search engine, itís a signal not to count that when increasing your rank. Please correct me if Iím wrong. So I believe as the traffic from signature comes, it's nice, but probably itís no use expecting much from it.

To be clear regarding the issue of signature links that it has nothing to do with rankings and this forum site is especially designed for healthy discussions from the members.

people click on it. How can I set up such a dynamic signature image in Outlook? ... Set Outlook to link to pictures instead of embedding them

The surround keys are also important, you friend. I will take an example, when you start of building an general keyword in signature like see more, click here, view more. It is better to include some keywords around this phrase (like If you want to get more ideas of online marketing, see more). Google will crawl all of the text, if the bots see some keys like see more, it will have to read around to see what the more is about.!

Google now essentially sees forum signature links as bad. Spammy links they are saying. So, if you're going to do those (like we all do here on this site), then I would link it out to another site (or use a nofollow).

Here's a case study around the topic: https://ahrefs.com/blog/removing-for...ure-backlinks/

I get it what you're trying to do but it will be better if you do it the standard way and put the text after link.
