    im wondering if it's still worth it to have profile links (PR4+) as part of your backlink strategy. or is profile links nowadays losing its effectiveness?

    Effectiveness is less than a month ago, but not 100% gone.
    The important thing now is to make sure it's not too high of a percentage of your bls:
    20%=good
    100%=bad

    George, it is this fear of taking action who is preventing you from seeing the real picture.

    Unleash all you can on producing profiles, but not only profiles, study and learn every kind of possible automated backlink and put them into practice together using what you call commonsense. Get some actual results data to analyse hombre!

    Do this instead of fearing that the worse will happen or that all your efforts will be in vain. In the very end, they never will.

    Seo can´t get any easier ;)

    I would recommend the actual forum signature links with legit and nospammy posts on the forums. I have worked for many clients with this and they said they have seen improvement on serps.

    I still use a lot of profile links and they seem to work well for me. But don't only use them by themselves, you also want links from various other sources like bookmarks, articles, blog comments, rss feeds, etc.
