How important do you think that visitors from different parts of the world matter to your website ? You might even include China and Russia whose traffic many webmasters block. Does a diversity help in your opinion ?
Abhi of course. Diversity from the geographic perspective is important, as this contributes to the overall visitor rate
I heard that when there are visitors from all around the globe, it is good for a website. SEO will be great and Google will begin to think that website as an authority.
I think using forum signatures can help a lot in such cases.

Potentially, yes, but if they contain sensitive information or negative content then this could also impact your SEO for the worse.

The site where we leave the signature link ?
Abhi yes. It's quite possible that information can be crawled by search engines if not excluded
Signature links were always one good source for anonymous visitors. People will contribute just to leave their link. ie, they find your link in some forum, click on it, registers, make some posts enough to add a siggy link.
I miss that feature here.

I haven't seen it is Discourse as well
Abhi good source for anonymous visitors.
True. But carefully nurtured back-links, no follow or otherwise can be a huge asset.
Any other method to get geographically divergent traffic ?
Social media. That is the best visitor source now. If you can manage to get into some group or friends with a global scope, that is very effective.
