    Hi,

    I'm using GSA to rank my sites. For my 1th tier I'm only doing contextual links so only article, web2.0, etc. platforms. I'm happy with GSA but the only down side is that it places a link in almost all profiles it creates.. Now my question is whether these profile links are harmfull or not? On average I'm getting like 4 - 5 profile links for each article link. I've read that profiles hardly get indexed so won't do much but can anyone confirm this? I'm currently filtering out all contextual links for my 2th tier because I definitly don't wanna link to the profiles

    Any help welcome

    There are no problems with Profile Links and you're right, a good majority of them don't get indexed. Also, why would your Tier 2 links link to the Profiles? Just links them to the articles and Web 2.0's. Let me know if you need any help or have any other questions.

    the problem is that GSA sees a profile link as a verified link (which it basically is) but they are put in the same list as the actual article links. So if I create a 2th tier campaign in GSA it would automatically like to them too

    OP, just remove those links before you index them.

    However, Its not a big deal. Profiles links are okay even to link directly to your site. But use them wisely...

    Profiles links cant hurt, until you go over the top. Use carefully...
