Forum Backlinks are always worthy, but it doesn't enough to have that alone. SEO is getting competitive and you need to explore your link building strategies. Always get backlinks from your niche related sites and diversify your keywords in the anchor text.

In fact, I never received traffic from the forum signature

Maybe you have not established yourself as an authoritative source?

I am new to this SEO game, but from what I saw in the internet these are the most common ways to build them.
I'm not a link-builder and don't recommend searching for sites to link back to your own, unless said links can deliver traffic. Why? Because when you are getting referral traffic, you don't have to worry about whether a potential link has, or doesn't have the "nofollow" attribute. This way, you are just looking for opportunities for traffic, rather than stressing about SERPs. Mind you, if you ever buy advertising links, make sure they are "nofollow" links.

2 cents.

If backlinks are from quality forums that are relevant to your website, they'll be beneficial but to a small extent. They may not be as effective as getting backlinks from leading online publications and blogs. They'll certainly not be harmful.

It's definitely not going to hurt you... Quality backlinks are tough to come by. Especially in certain niches where there really aren't any Authority sites to approach.

The signature on the forum is a section for you to rank your site. But pay attention, it is also counterproductive or does not work when you sign up unrelated forums to your site.

Backlink analysis of the opponent:

- You can use a variety of tools to analyze the backlink your competitors have built, so that you can find the site can get quality backlink for yourself, remember to select the site. Have the best quality offline.

- Backlink Checker Tools: ahrefs.com, alexa.com, ranksignals.com, iseo ... .. Mostly you need to pay to be able to use the full rights to backlink test as well as analysis elements About the keyword of the opponent.

This is a good simple approach. I believe it's quite right. For example this forum. It's a medium authority forum so there is no way a signature backlink from here will ever harm my website.
It's a "natural" link-building technique (if u r not spam).

You are contradicting yourself. Is it a way to rank or is it counter productive?

Huh? It's a signature link added by a member which increases one's link profile. So by definition, it's anything but natural.

I didn't say it's 100% natural. I put the word in quotes.
But it's a manually builded link so it's not like it's black hat SEO. It looks pretty white hat, don't you think?

Putting something in quotes, does not automatically mean an abstract meaning of the word or phrase in quotes should be assumed - unless it is stated or qualified in the statement prior to, or shortly after the quoted passage.

You can call it whatever colour hat you wish, but forum signature links are sill a product of a manual creation, and are not accumulated Organically. Also, based on Google guidelines, what one can get away with, or not get away with, is up to Googles algorithm.

According to Google:

Quote:
Any links intended to manipulate PageRank or a site's ranking in Google search results may be considered part of a link scheme and a violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines
That said, I have the equivalent of several thousand links from this forum site. I don't feel it negatively or positively affects the target pages ranking in any significant way.

However, as I've suggested in other threads here, if someone here who has thousands of links from this forum, and is prepared to remove their signature links both here, at V7N, and any other forums they participate in, and then report back in a few weeks with the changes in keyword/page ranking, I'd be more than happy to change my tune if a significant negative ranking change is maintained by some or all pages involved.

And - as I've said here many times, I'd give up every link I have in my profile for a few "nofollow" links that give me consistent qualified traffic - any day of the week!

This is why so many forums are filled with spammers that don't share, but rather are here to spew junk or spam.

What a total load of nonsense. Can you supply any evidence to show us that? can you show us just one site that is ranked on the basis of forum signatures?

Is there some sort of special SEO school you clowns go to that teaches this nonsense?

So manual creation of links means nothing for Google?
Is it forbidden or frowned upon?
Is there any guideline from them stating any of the above?

Google do not want YOU to create any links!!!
They have algorithms (Penguin) that aims to penalize or negate the value of any link that you create.
