    I was wondering is someone has positive results from placing their links on forum signature and member profile pages (forums, social media stuff etc...)????

    For some reason I don't believe that this is any effective but I'd like to be proven wrong and I didn't try it myself.

    Anyone knows? Any SEO guru here?

    Logic gets you a long way in SEO. Since you have control over your own profile pages and signatures, it should not really count as an incoming link. It would just be too easy for spammers to do this on a massive basis.

    These links won't hurt your rankings and they even might help but only a very little bit.

    Of course this is effective, do you think why the hell such as Xrumer exists? :D But if u just simply putting links in signatures on high trafficked forums and posting also brings some link juice. In fact links from eg. DP get noticed very quickly by Google, sometimes even faster than from social bookmarking sites.

    If your talking about doing PR packets like angelas and pauls, yes they work. I've been doing this for clients and can get them ranking pretty high. But I don't put there url on any sites below pr6 generally. It is also very time consuming.
