Are signature links on irrelevant forums a potential problem?
Although I am active on the three real estate forums that I could find that are not niche, these forums themselves are not very active, so I find I spend most of the time I have available on SEO related discussion sites. I have read differing opinions on what the effect could be of having tons of signature links from sites that are not relevant to mine, and even the suggestion that such links (especially from SEO sites) could be a signal to Google that would not be favourable. So as a precaution I have removed most of my signatures but am still active on those forums.
I was wondering what the opinions are here on this?
