    I noticed angela and paul's backlinks and noticed many people point out (including angela and paul) that their backlinks must work because the name "angela and paul johnson" hold the number 1 spot on google, they even show screen shots of their names at spot 1 on google. Today when I checked their names are not in the first 10 pages of google. Now i'm thinking if their backlinks are so good or their seo tactics are so good why arn't they at the top of google? Are profile backlinks hurting page rank and position on google?

    Make a page with a title "Me and My Girlfriend Name".. build few backlinks to it and after a week when you search in Google, you will be on first position.. so that isn't a good way to decide if these guys know SEO.... Personal names are easy to rank..

    They are one of the ingredients in your link building process. They are not the only ingredient.

    A and P's are ok. One thing they are is diverse, the average packet has link positions all over the place. Though very few allow you to add a great deal in the way of content. Also - some of them have a procedure to get the link that can take weeks. These aren't generally "Push and Go" links - but now and again for a bit of diversity they are worth it. I tend to get a service to place them for me though If I need some.

    They still work, but not as good as they used to. In the best times, you could rank micro niche site solely on that links, nowadays, you need to build links from other sources as well.

    I try to get some links from those packets but they are full of forums. I don't like to build backlinks on forums because I know a lot of them do not give a boost on serps due to algo updates.

    What do you mean with that? Forum links are worth as much as any other links. The problem is only in the fact that those links are available only in "user profile" on forums - Google can detect that, so having only these links is wrong. But, it is not unnatural to have links from forum profiles in your link profile (as a webmaster, it is OK to link to your own site(s) on forums, isn't it?).

    Well, I don't have any such statement saying "angela and paul johnson" holding the number 1 spot in my backlink packets and never have. Angela is not my partner and we sell our own seperate monthly packets. It would be a complete waste of time and useless for me to try and rank for any term that yields no sign ups, sells, or potential leads. I started the monthly packets years ago as a way for users to obtain backlinks and to this day they are still an effective way of creating backlinks. However, creating wiki, profile, forum, blog commenting backlinks arent SEO tactics, it only a way to build backlinks which is only part of the big puzzle. SEO consists of on-page seo, keyword selection, social engagement, backlinks, user activity, testing and tracking, etc.

    That is completely correct and the reason why I have never built backlinks to my name or have even promoted my name being number 1.
