    The question is, not whether they're working, but how are you getting them indexed. Once you answer that, you'll find out whether they're working or not ;)

    What is your experience? Do you still use profile links or not?

    I still use profile backlinks and they work just fine.

    As said above, learn how to get them indexed.

    Build backlinks to your backlinks :)

    If you only follow profile backlinking, then it may not index by Google. But if you follow profile backlinks mixed with other backlinks then it acts as a very useful tool of SEO.

    Just don't build them to your main site, build them to your backlinks. They are not useless, just very devalued after the panda update. 5 profile backlinks after panda may have the power of 1 before the panda update...but it's just my estimate...

    Profile links are useless. Not working at all. I've heard they
    all slapped by some bear, panda I think.

    Xrumer, Scrapebox, AMR and BMD are not working anymore.
    Total waste of time and money. Do not buy these tools. You
    only get 10% success rate and these links are completely useless
    to get any ranking in Google.

    You need to create unique high quality content and then everybody
    will link to you and you will get tons of traffic and make millions of
    dollars in no time.

    We get the sarcasm but I was wondering about if profile as still strong as they used to be?
    I would appreciate if you could rank Scrapebox,Profile links,BMD bookmarks in chronological order in term of their effectiveness

    All of those that you named are bottom feeder backlinks. So they are all about equal.

    Profile and blog comment links are certainly not useless.

    They've just been devalued greatly in the last update.

    This, plus the fact that you lose them over time make doing them a pain in the ass.

    I agree, and your SEO service must really take forever writing all that 100% unique content huh!?

    To answer the OP's question, a) you need to get the profiles indexed, and all profiles are not created equal, and B) you should add as much backlink diversity as possible and not rely simply on profiles. I am NOT really promoting the guy I'm quoting's services, but its worth a gander at his site because its actually a pretty good diagram of what oughta work great. I've never ordered it, nor have I tried this structure before, but it shows great diversity and the importance of quality backlinks to your money site, and the crapier links towards the bottom of the pyramid.
