    Interesting info, thanks!

    How big was the site that you ranked with those forum posts? And were posting links to inside URLs or home page only?

    thanks

    Awesome! I was worried that those forum posts wont give the link juice.

    If you like testing, you should test forum profiles too!

    I did!

    It works better for diversity in my opinion.

    Forum links works well for traffic and sometimes ******** links (it's a kind of contextual link).

    Awesome journey! Thanks a lot!

    However, won't a lot of forum links appearing in your link profile in a short period of time look unnatural to Google? How much is enough?

    What is your velocity of adding forum links? How many do you post a day/a week?

    Do you add other types of links for diversity at the same time?

    Do you think there would be much difference if its was a signature link instead of a thread body link?

    We usually do 3-5 links per week. We do other links too so that the more difficult keywords rank asap.

    It all depends on the competition, and how you do against them :)

    Signature link will give you a link from each of the thread you answer, and it can be very powerful or toxic (depends how that link reacts on your site)

    (Thread links are safer imo)

    Go apply ;)

    Apply it ;)

    Posts :)

    If you have many money pages would you build forum links from different domains only or also do some forum links from the forums you already placed the link on?

    Do you think it would be a good idea to create a quora question and an answer for every post I create on my site? Different Ips accounts and all ofc and buy some upvotes.

    Cool, I am also seeing good results with forum links now. I build 1 link every day on a different forum.

    I have 300 posts so in the next 200 days (will increase the velocity of links with time)

    I will finish the current queue and by then new aged content will be ready on my website.

    When the domain + content is old, google won't penalize when the website starts to attract forum links.

    Also, buy/build some guest posts type links every now and then + some forum profiles + very few comment backlinks on blogspot.

    IMO, this is better and natural than PBN links and also better than buying an expired domain for a 301 redirect.

    The other safe thing to do apart from above would be to get paid links medium to super powerful websites and that requires thousands of dollars. SERPLogic is selling 1 link from Oracle for $1000
