Can you provide some examples or proof to support your statements and to see that forum signatures can be an effective source of traffic?

Agreed with Jeff, can you provide the details how you are getting traffic from signature?

I don't necessarily have a problem believing that you're getting traffic from forum signatures, although I, too, would like to see more than just your unsubstantiated word for it.

But what makes the difference is: what does this forum signature traffic do after they land on your pages? Does your forum signature traffic convert well?

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.

Torka is right. When it comes to business, conversions are a lot more important. If you have 5,000 people coming to your shop and nobody makes a purchase, it's irrelevant traffic. On the other hand, if you had 5 people coming to your shop and 2 of them make purchases, then you know you're doing something right.

I'm not sure if it's intentional but what you're doing is a smart technique albeit it being a bit of a spam technique - by posting and telling people that you're getting a lot of clickthroughs to your forum signature, you've made the forum members curious enough to actually click on your signature link to see what your site is about.

Would love to see the proofs as well if you have them! Cheers!

Agree with torka and zlass. You can have a horse statue on a big town square, where tens of thousands of people walk by and therefore see your horse statue. But what will it do for you? Nothing. The same goes for visitors - if they don't convert, there's no point. And there's a huge difference in traffic quality.

Yes, conversions are important. No, they don't make traffic irrelevant. You want both. A lack of info on conversions doesn't make a surge in traffic instantly irrelevant.

An otherwise complete lack of context, though, doesn't help us either.
