Make sure your website is a clickable link. To unsure this, always include HTTP:// before your website address.

Don’t over do it!! In forums, it is important that your sig file is visible but if you overdo it, you’ll lose respect from the online community and no one will visit your website.

That’s it! It’s that simple! When you leave a comment, your comment and website URL PERMANENTLY remains on the forum or blog.
