    Join a forum that allows you to have a link in the signature.
    Dig up old threads and post things like "I have this problem too, please help."
    Mods/Admins come around, see the dead thread resurected and close it. Once you have a bunch of old, closed threads with your posts in them, ad a spammy backlink to your signature and never go back.

    The signature backlink should be found by Google, but in a dead thread it's unlikely any person is going to see it.

    Viable?

    As a owner of a forum, I would say this won't work. Posts will get reported and removed + user will be banned/warned.
