January 9th, 2008, 10:50 PM #1Site In Signature or Public Profile Pro/Con
I am rapping up a coupon site and considering sticking it in the signature. I can't see what harm it would do me, and it couldn't hurt to have one more link for the SEs.
I see a mixed bag when it comes to showing your site. Some comments on any visibility benefits from those doing it would be helpful.
When it comes to coupon sites there are hundreds easily found to study so why would a beginning site like mine want to hide?

I occasionally put my link in forums full of people looking for what my site offers, but never in forums full of competitors. Every good idea gets copied, why give 'em a head start?
Also, my experience is that forum links don't offer a lot of SE benefit.

if you put it in where allowed and it stays it can help your natural seo. If they remove it though, I think the SE's see it as worse than if it was never there in the 1st place. Look at all those spammers who do that, they never get good ranks.

With a coupon site, where you already have thousands of competitors, I don't see the harm. You'll never even notice a few more competitors. If you've built a unique site that does something nobody else does, I wouldn't recommend it.

As Michael said only show the cards you are willing for people to see in these forums. Show little else.I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die
to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there
isn't and die to find out there is.

Very few people will click on your sig, especially for a coupon site, so I wouldn't worry about someone copying it.
It will definitly be a benefit for search engines to have your link on your sig.

If it is true that very few people click on sig files why is it so important to NOT use them for "x"amount of posts?
Is that simply a spam protection? I think I answered my own newb question.
