Default Interesting...

I just noticed today that if you change your signature information it changes the signature on all your previous posts....

Well that is handy

How does this work for people that are aware of it? significant in creating links to those pages I assume???

This helps a lot I believe. If I have a client, who has left me and the other one, who needs fast SEO and one of the forums, where I have my sig. really used to get me the traffic, then just a change will work a lot for my new client.

Hope i was not confusing.. :P

Smile dynamic linking

It seems links to signature is not static rather dynamic. I mean signature is not stored with the posts actually. Signature is stored at one place separate from user's post. At the time of viewing it signatures are attached to posts. Hence once signature updated the updated signature is attached with posts as no old copy of signature exists.

It is of great help, if poster's profile is updated all older posts are updated too. So the most recent active profile is visible to all. And hence can be associated with the author without any dead link.

It can be a huge help if you have a lot of posts and are a valuable contributor to the site. Most forums are almost completely indexed by the search engines, so, if you have been a member of a forum for some time and have, say, 500 posts, and you change your signature to have a link to XYZ website, all of a sudden there are 500 links to that website. I'm not sure how the search engines rank multiple links from one source, but forums seem to have high page rank in general, so any link form a forum is likely to benefit you.

What's important is that you be an actual useful participating member of the forum. If you simply sign up to a forum and start spamming it with posts just to get your signature out there, you are likely to be kicked off or suspended. If you offer valuable content to the site, everyone will be happy, and your site should hopefully get some traffic.
