    Hi, I just want to ask if it is beneficial for a site if I will be creating profile links using sites that have PR4-PR7?

    Thanks

    I have been wanting to conduct a proper test for this since the changes. But in the absence of Scientific data I will tell you that my intuition tells me it will strill work so long as you do not do insane amounts a day and ping them to death.

    Honestly speaking, I dont think it is. I have used them recently but I have not got any benefits but I might have done something wrong too. I have a client who said he got some ranking after he got some High PR profile links. But I think some good linkpushes can get you a much higher benefit. Thats what I am doing right now and its working well.
    Get some good Web 2.0 and rank them in top 5 pages and you will be good to go. :D

    Any sort of links are beneficial to sites if you know your stuff. Just don't over do them and don't make them look spammy, everything works fine. Just learn to tweak the things as per time changes and you would be good. Nothing goes out of fashion, you just need to change yourself as per trend changes.

    Hope that helps.

    They help if done properly. Actually all links help except of obvious spam links.

    Yes, when we do it naturally without spamming with lot of links in a single day...we need to build links from high pr pages so that we will get some boost to our rankings.

    I intended to do them manually since I don't have the capability of purchasing a software that will do it. Thanks

    It Still Worth. Just Dont post the URL only to that site give maximum information that you can with profile picture.

    Profile Links should be open to search engines and check whether the homepage is having good PR or Not.

    Also check that site is allow the Anchor Texts or Not.

    profile back links are good which remain active forever. Not the one which is created once and never opened or not any kind of post from the account. Google hates those links.

    If the profile has genuine posts it can benefit. If it is an empty profile with zero posts it won't do anything. Even if it did, the link juice from the profile would be diluted by the other 10,000 spam profiles.

    Of course its still going to work, but depends how you build those profiles. For example type the following into G "help.com/user/" and you bring up a list of user profiles on help.com which has a PR 8.

    just a quick look and one of those profiles has a PR 5 and is less than a few months old. The links in the author bio are all do-follow, im sure that passes some juice right? ;)

    How about a little Zenno template to automate said tasks and voila you have a nice juice maker :p

    Yes, they still work. You just have to use them the right way.

    Profile links to your money site won't have much, if any, serp benefits. However, profile links work best when you are trying to dilute your anchor text. That is how I use them, and seems to work wonders.

    I am using some anchor text variations and currently posting 3-5 profiles per day. Hopefully it can really help my site boost its serp.

    I love how people like to say with certainty that something does/doesn't work when they haven't done or seen any actual study to see if that's true. Somebody with some time on their hands needs to put these rumors to rest and do a real study.
