I came across a lot of forum and they are allowing to put advertisements in the signature of specific numbered posts

Does signature help me increase sales and drive traffic to my blog site? what do you think?

Yes you can get a lot of traffic from forums via the signature. But that will all depend on how much value you're adding to the forum. Posting one liners like "I totally agree" won't get you the results you want.

Don't focus on making too many posts or threads, focus on replying to questions that you have more knowledge about where you can offer the most amount of value. Instead of making tons of useless posts on a forum.

The number of posts don't matter, but what matters the most is the quality of the posts you create. It's all about creating an impact with just a few posts. That will also help you focus on other marketing strategies or target other forums as well.

You don't need to rely on answering questions only, create a value thread that offers value (more like a blog post), don't promote anything simply offer value and those who like the article will most likely click on your signature.

The great thing about creating a value thread is that the moderators may like and find it useful for their audience and make it a sticky post, that's free traffic for a lifetime.

Yes it can help you increase blog traffic and get more sales when done the right way because your target audience is already there. Simply focus on offering value and do this as a long term strategy. Pick a few forums that you want to target, after a while filter them out and focus on the few that bring you the most amount of traffic.

Hope that helps.

I totally agree with this :p

Forum traffic is often overlooked by people.
The confusion I had with forum sig was gone after I realized that not only forum users read the forum, but also a lot of guests come here from google... and they are very targeted people... someone you want to have on your website, because they search exactly what you have!

Depends on the forum audience and it what you advertise may appeal to them. If the ad is non relevant to the forum's typical user, it probably won't generate many clicks except from those who may be bored.

How can you lose money if signature is not related to forum? You can only increase bounce rate and lose time by posting irelevant things!

Only if you look at Time=money... then yes...
