Is having site URLs in ones forum signature a good SEO move ? Simple question, but possibly not a simple answer..... I was always under the impression having as many links to ones site as possible is a good thing. But does Google have a SPAM filter as it were, and actually ignoring, or even worse downgrading, sites with loads of links (all the same) from another site ? It may just be coincidence (there are a few other things happening on my site at the moment, like swapping from HTTP to HTTPS, though that was about three weeks before) but Google seemed to stop crawling my site at about the time I started using URLs in my signature for two forums I use (this being one). I`m using the "cached" function on specimen pages brought up by Google to check when last crawled, is that the way to do it because the Google search console (in Webmaster tools) seems to be reporting that loads of my pages are being crawled ? ! ?
