I'm new to this type of backlinking. The way I understand the strategy is you add links pointing to your site on your profile on authoritative forums. My questions are: Aren't these types of links just spammy and doesn't really provide actually benefit? Spammy or not, do they work? Do you have experience using forum backlinks? If you have experience with these links, what's your strategy? Which sites do you link to? Directly to your money site or just your lower tiers? Given the recent de-indexing of blog networks, wouldn't these types of links next to go?
