    Is it good/bad to have this type of backlink? Considering if the forum has 50k+ pages indexed, the ad is on every single page. Wouldn't that mean 50k backlinks. Is this an unsafe practice? Especially for a site that is under 2yrs old with no real solid backlinking profile.

    What do you think?

    Depends if the forum is niche relevant or entirely unrelated. One thing you may do if there are other ads on the site is check how those sites are ranking with an active ad.

    Not bad, it will get counted as one backlink, since it's one domain.

    I had a mini site that linked to a main site, with like 300 links in total from all of the pages, still do to this today, no negative effects whatsoever.
