So my question is, would signing a guestbook help increase link popularity, and have any of you guys used this method? This seems like a poor method, but does it work?
But it doesn't take much time. Do a search for guestbook + [your keywords].
Including keywords in search gets you on theme.
Got a page about Miami? A search on Google for the words guestbook + miami shows a guestbook with a page rank of 5. For link pop, that's quality enough for me.
Maybe sign one a week. Have as many links from nonguestbook sites as well.

That would be my concern too. It doesn't look very natural.
Not that they would do this, but what's to prevent the major engines
from putting up dummy guestbooks to see what fish jump into the net?
That would be a quick and dirty way to identify spammers, would it not?
I mean, here's a guestbook on a site about apple trees. In come URLs for hotels,
travel, florists .. (apple blossoms? I don't think so .. ) -Larry
