    ok. if your backlinks don't last that long does it matter? like once they show up in yahoo site explorer and get deleted by the forum or blog owner will they stay there? along these lines i have been using my signature in other forums for backlinks and want to change i periodically to my other sites. is this a good method?

    If a backlink is deleted, Google will remove the credit for it in your ranking next time it spiders the site and finds the link gone.

    Backlinks from forums want help much but removing them and adding new sites for a little while and then changing them back could hurt you a lot.

    And like Micallef said if the forum owner removes your links then you don't keep getting credit for them.
