Are forum profile backlinks worth it?
I have been reading through a few forums and some people are saying that forum profile backlinks are worthless and others say they are not. I don't know if it's worth it to waste time and put my blog link in my forum profiles or not.
Does anyone know if forum profile backlinks worth it or not?

Forum links are mostly no-follow and the least amount of forums those who provide do-follow links are pretty useless as they provide link juice almost equal to zero.

Forum links and forum profile links are different then.
How did you call all of them as forum links?
There are many types of forum links: link on signature, links in posts, links in profiles, sponsored links on the forum..etc

Most forums make their content link by default no-follow. You can put any as you like as it is a discussion board so search engines doesn't count that much. And as it goes for signature links I haven't seen any SERP rise for those kind of links even if they are do-follow.

Forum profile links are the about as low quality of links as you can possibly get. They are trash.
Anyone who says otherwise is probably selling forum profile links.

P.S. I have seen some places where members were selling or renting signature links. Those should all be avoided then right?

Find forums online that are related to your sites niche and get involved within that community. Reply to threads, answer peoples questions, offer advice, etc. This all helps to build up your reputation as someone who is an expert within that niche. Try to use "Do-Follow" Forums so that you can include a link to your site within your signature, which helps search engines crawl your site. IMO

Hello, From an SEO perspective it's important that you should try to get a lot of do-follow links. But with the current trend its a bit hard to get do-follow links. Of cource we can but instead of focusing only on do follow links. Try to position your website on all platforms as possible. Whether its a dofollow or nofollow link, think about it as you can a place where people can find you. Visitors and relevant traffic matters more than just links. Go for a holistic approach.

Forum links, whether they are in content or in signatures, are really only good for direct traffic. If you are trying to create or buy/rent forum links for the purpose of better rankings, you are mostly just wasting your time.

You are exactly right SEOPub. Googles algorithm are so advanced that it considers a lot of factors before deciding whether the artcle should be ranked or not. Paid linksa re a waste of time. On the long run it will cause more trouble than benefit.

Forum profile backlinks are worthless. But forum links are still good, even if they are no-follow, if you know how to use them properly.

Forum profile links are not worth for SEO. You can use signature links for good link juice and traffic signals.
