    Are links in forum signatures ok to build PR or does Google just ignore them?

    Does anyone know Google's formula for collecting links?

    Like if you have 3 links in close proximity on a page it's ok but perhaps 4 or more links they consider it a link farm and ignore the links?

    Any rules for making links that you all can share?

    depends on the forum page, If you are posting just for the sake of getting links. I would pay attention to threads that are very popular (growing fast) to post on these because google will keep coming back to this thread to grab the new content.

    A link farm is a site with tonsss of links on it usually more than actual content. They are pretty easy to spot and usually all links to the same network of websites.
    Here is an example of a link farm that I found, its not the hugest Ive seen but it will give you an idea.

    Code:

    Move your mouse over the text, this guy obviously owns all of these sites.

    Dont think too hard on it.

    Especially if you are manually building forum links you'll be alright.
