    Some of my links, typically forum posts; profile links or 2.0s, don't show up in GWT/Ahrefs, but they are indexed (found by search) in Google. Are they still worth building (i.e. are they counted?).

    First of, GWT doesn't promise you to show all your links, certainly not real time (or anytime soon they found them). Same is true for ahrefs, they have crawlers which try to collect as many links as possible, but they can't possible crawl the entire internet. It has nothing to do to the type of your links.
    Hope it helps.
    Cheers.

    I think GWT should be treated as a reference. I think they count. Try to ping them or share via G+ and check, if Ahrefs will take them into account afterwards.
