    Has there been any recent update in the algo as for as how G treats and recognizes profile links?

    I haven't noticed a recent one against profiles, as beakon mentioned
    this algo update was last spring.

    The main difference though is that the update threw out "thin" pages.
    Profiles tend to be super thin with little to no original content, or hell,
    any content for that matter.

    The key is to fill up your profiles with as much content as possible. Make
    them appear like a PAGE rather then a thin profile page. You know what I mean?

    I never had much success with profile backlinks. I stopped using them for years.

    They do still work, however as mentioned above... Google stopped flowing link juice/PR through lower-authority forums.

    Google treats profile backlinks as "self=1" links, ie, self promotion. They've done this for quite some time now.

    Google devalued profile links LONG ago.

    Do you guys use them to blast other tiers or skip using them all together?
