Are forums profile links still effective?
Yes, but no where near as much as they use to be. They were spammed to death.
Are you sure you want to delete this post?
They are not as effective as they used to be in the past years.
Yeah right! I agree with you guys, profile links are no more considered beneficial in SEO world.
I had commented in another discussion that promoting your backlinks in blogs is better than promoting it in forums because the forum signature is commonly ignored by the readers. The backlink of your site can only appear in your signature otherwise there is a board for the purpose. With the blog comment some readers get interested and has the tendency to check your signature for the link to your site.
