    some forums dont allow html or bbc code due to spamming but you can leave your website url. Is this useless since it wont move your site up the serps for your keywords

    yeah, but if you can't leave anything other than text, I don't see the point. I fail to see how that would help you.

    If your there already, then leave it. A do follow link is a do follow link and use a domain that has they keyword in it :)

    Also check to see if google can get into the profiles, if you have to register before you can see a profile then it is a waste of your time. I just realized this recently after using Pauly's free link packets for the last 4 months. 1/4 of his links are blocked and useless.

    Anyone know if Angela's packets contain these useless links also?

    A bare link or a link that does not have your keyword a anchor text will not help you get ranked. All links however count towards the PR of the page they are pointing to. So they will help you with PR but not with your rankings.

    No, i am just saying google cant get to about 1/4th of them since you have to login to see the profile.

    Just click on someones profile name and see if you have to login to see the profile, if so just move on to the next site.


    Check around the sites for a blog to, I have found some sweet hi pr do follow blog posts to comment on from his list.

    A do follow link that is just your URL has some SEO benefit. Admittedly the anchor text link is much more valuable but when it's just your URL, the words around the link, the title of the page your link is on are taken into consideration

    It's not useless in my opinion. They call this "bear linking" which is perfectly normal and Google still looks at this as link strength. it may not help your rankings or page rank, but it sure will show that you have links coming in to your site.
