It 'probably' doesn't matter, in terms of the signal at least.

 

Front facing, the side with the lights does show you some 'information' and that is why most would have it facing front. The back has the power cord, LAN ports, WAN port, and possible USB port. Putting that facing forward could make it look like a 'rats nest' of wires and even hard to run the wires to the router, but for some I guess it could be easier.

 

Some routes can be directional. If you Google "are router directional" you could get some help on this too.

  @ARHZ,

It shouldn't matter what direction the wifi router is facing, except for the fact that you should try to keep the router horizontal and not mounted to a wall. As Irv said, I would recommend placing the router in which the back is easily accessible, while being able to easily see the status lights on the front of the router.
