    Ok so for example, i'm registered to bhw. The background to this forum is black, so what if I took a small piece of the background uploaded it to photo bucket. Than I placed the img in a random post using [​IMG] And what if I was to make that image lead to my website.

    Would this work as a back link. Can it do anything to my SEO?

    I did this on another large hacking forum and i'm wondering if the back link goes through.

    I would say, 'yes' - as Google can't read images and counts image links - but I've never tried it.

    However... forum links are pretty naff quality - needing high quantity - which would look spammy.

    Google do however identify links that are craftily planted (same colour text# as background# or a link that is a "." or similar) so I wouldn't be surprised if they identify link images smaller than a certain size - so the bigger the better - which unfortunately increases the chance of them being 'hovered over' and spotted.

    Also - don't expect it to last too long - but let us know how you get on!

    it might work, but i think the image should be bigger than few pixels and with irregular size.. Also a "one color" image could be problem, since G could be ignoring one color background images, or any images having just one color, especially when it is the same color as the site background..
