    Hi,
    Does it worth to put my links on my signature and post in .edu forums ?

    Does it increase pagerank ?

    yup! its useful. :p
    thought the increase in PR will depend on the no. of ******** links.

    No It does not... Most of the .edu forum set member profile link as no-follow. so it's too rare to get indexed. so i don't think this does work. Rest lets see what others says....

    Sig links in forums are typically weak even if they are .edu. Unless you automate the process or outsource, don't waste manual labor on developing such links.

    So, those people that sell .edu backlinks actually are just using it as a marketing strategy to get money???

    Not necessarily. There are many .edu backlinks available that are not forum signature links which carry more value. Service providers that mix in .edu forum profiles usually do this for very little money. But they are not a silver bullet to ranking first page.

    Thanks.
    I was doing it manually. I was just wasting my time then.
    Better work on some Web 2.0 articles.

    Its still work but forums must be do-follow and less no. of members with high PR.
