The RoadTrucker Trucking Forum strictly prohibits advertising, especially in the form of links, and/or unoriginal and duplicate content. The forum is a venue where truckers and RVers share insights with each other, so advertising of products and services in posts is regarded as inappropriate.
However, RoadTrucker provides a suitable area for a signature, after you have made 5 posts. We do expect the signature to be tastefully done. The purpose should not be to attract attention, nor to sell a product or service, but more so to make a statement about who you are. We recommend using 2 lines. The first should be a link to your website, while the second should be a short tagline.
For example, take a look at what the Admin has done with his signature. It says "RoadTrucker Inc" which if you click it, you will be taken to RoadTrucker.com website. Underneath, there is a tagline about RoadTrucker. Here it is.
Products for Trucking and Driving Comfort
Notice also, that his signature is nowhere to be found in any of his posts, plus, he posts valuable information that truckers would find useful.
When you reach five (5) or more posts, you will be promoted to the "Acknowledged Users" group. This will give you the benefit of creating a signature for others to see.

rel="nofollow" is automatically added to all links. This means that any link will not be followed by Google, so trying to use the forum in an effort to get link juice for your website will be a waste of time. Notice we do not add a ton of advertisements like most forums, so we do not want you adding your advertising. You may see 1 banner at the top and 1 banner at the bottom. The forum is a small thank you gift for our customers, as well as our truckers and RVers.
For those who make a significant contribution over time, and write an original and exceptional article, we will remove the nofollow, as an added benefit.
