Backlinks or links back to your website are very important in gaining high ranking / traffic and popularity. It is best to form a strategy with your niche market and keywords. Links from forums and blogs will not only create an important backlink but also some traffic, which is why it is important to choose a forum that, is closely related to what you do.
It is also best to build your backlinks gradually so Google doesn’t think you are spamming the internet with links. When working on a project for a client I will set aside an hour at least a week to go back to the forums and add more posts with signature links.
