I've been putting serious effort on linkbuilding my site. It currently has 40k crappy backlinks and can't even rank for a lousy keyword so I decided to make quality backlinks. I've built several web 2.0s and now I wanted .edu backlinks, so I ran a few Google queries and I was able to register a profile that looks like this: http://xxx.xxx.edu/forum/member.php?u=81274 And on that page you have to click in the About Me tab to see the actual link. Is this valid? Can google read through the tabs?
