    Hi guys,
    I'm starting to create a lot of forum accounts relevant to my website. I'm about to create my signature and I want to add several anchor texts in the signature box. For example, I have a landscaping company in Chicago i want my signature to be filled with anchor texts relevant to my keywords like:

    Landscaping Chicago Interlocking Chicago Landscape Design Toronto

    My question is does google look at this as spam? is it better just to put my company name as the anchor text and then use the anchor texts within my actual posts?

    This looks very spammy.

    I would just use some think like 'Click Here' View my site', etc for anchor text. There is a lot of evidence Google is cracking down on anchor texts

    So anchor text is no longer a useful tool for seo?

    That looks extremely spammy. just use mydomain.com as anchor as that's the most natural way. Instead of using a sig, it might be better to write posts with your link inside as sigs have less value.

    you just want to promotion so that use keyword with tagging that's very safe and easy way but not use keyword stuffing.

    I've been hearing post-penguin to max out at 50% of links being main-keyword targeted (using click here, domain name, other keywords for others). Is this consistant with what tohers have heard?

    In other words, this is called spamming
    before google could do anything, may be the forum mods will kick the users out!
    better consult some expert...
