It is not really 'hiding' your signature link.
I would like to place a link to my website in the signature area of forums I visit but I do not want these links to show up in the results like:
I really don't want somebody to learn what forums I visit.
Is this possible?
Can I forward the links to a dummy domain and then have it redirected to my real domain?
Now both those things fail on users who just search for your site, as since the text is on the page it gets indexed and could show up in the results for search of your domain.
I think your best bet is a combo of the above and your last idea, use a dummy domain on the profile, in text, this way no links are indexed and you real domain is never indexed along with the pages of the forum.
To sig or not to sig, that is the question.
Answer: use two different accounts... one you want published, one you do not.
Oh! Wait! You want to publish... so you get found anyway... that's what search engines do. Parse TEXT.
Anyone who wanted could locate his sites or follow the link trail, but the forum and social links are not showing directly in his backlink profiles.
