    My idea is basic. Join a forum with decent PR and put my site url in the sig and post away. What forum gets crawled often that I can spam/post on? :)

    You could even ping you post to get it crawled faster if you want.

    instead posting in high pr forums, target your niche forums. It will pass more link juice.

    A lot of forums will not allow commercial signature of any kind.

    Yes you need to find a forum in your niche that allows commercial signatures. It is well worth the trouble.

    If it's a forum with a LOT of posters, this isn't necessarily true. :D

    That just means he needs to work harder to find the ones that do.

    The main thing about this method is that you need to participate at least a little in the forum your trying this at. You need to get a reply with your sig into a few threads. You can't do that by spamming a forum. Just look what happens when people try that here. If you look like your just spamming to get your sig visible, then the forum will ban the account or more likely delete the account to remove the replies completely.

    So the basics to make this method worthwhile.
    1. Find forums that allow signature links
    2. Find forums that are not no-f0ll0w
    3. Find forums relevant to your niche
    4. Participate in the forum at a minimal level
    5. Don't be spammy

    That's more work than most people want to do, but if you follow those steps you can get some high quality backlinks from it. This type of backlinking can be a good idea or a waste of time. It all depends on the type of site your promoting.

    If your following hotboy's 300 adsense niche site method, it would be a waste of time. If your building an authority site, then this is a good idea.

    I have posted on many forums, only had problems on 1 and it was because it was a related site, didn't want competition.

    I bet you'd still get your account shut down on that forum.

    Why don't you use the smiley trick on the forums? You put your URL in the smiley and it is barely noticeable.
