    The most common link building techniques using forums are to create a profile page and a signature link. Signature links allow links to be created at the bottom of posts or comments you leave in a forum. Signature links are at best very low quality and although they may send you some traffic are unlikely to have any long lasting impact on the pages you link to.

    What Jack and canol said.  The trick is to try to fool the Google algorithm into thinking that your site has been around for a while.  Backlinking makes this possible.  All the techniques jack and canol said to use are perfectly legit.  But don't post in any one place too many times.  You'll be branded a spammer.

    While content is now more important than ever links are still important as well. I think the type of link is now really more important than the quantity of links. Good links with relative Anchors.

    Quality links are far more important today than the quantity of links. I also think relative anchor words are very important.
