    Does google count all of my links from (whole forum) every post i make to forums ?
    OR does google count links only once, per each website

    Im posting messages to some high PR forums with signature links.
    for example 200 posts = 200 links from one forum ? :)

    Thanks !

    Google's algorithm is probably smart enough to know that they are signature links and value them accordingly. That being said, more can't hurt though.

    are those links do follow? Most forums links are no follow

    Google, sees probably all backlinks you ever have, but how many it counts, noone can tell exactly

    The fact that SEO is an intriguing subject what makes it more interesting. You can never say for sure how Google's algorithm works. But you can definitely learn from your experience or mistakes.

    A good word of advice is to maintain variety in backlinks. Rather than getting 200 backlinks from a single forum, you should try to get 20 backlinks from 10 different forums.

    Thanks.

    Of course, but that doesn't mean that they will affect your site equally. It also depends on the website how often google will craw the forum and how soon it will collect / crawl your links..

    not a good idea to post 200 post on a single forum,it's better to use different forums and it will be more effective if you get links by different link building strategies.

    Matt Cutts has previously stated that sitewide links/multiple links on the same site offer a diminishing rate of return for SEO purposes. I'm too lazy to find it to post, but he said it in a recent YouTube video if you wanna look for it.
