    Hey everyone. I'm pretty new to IM and SEO so just learning.

    Ah I see now. Thanks. At least now I know what the official name for them is.

    Now my second question, if someone who is giving my backlinks (not actually doing it - just as an example) tons of profile back links, how are they doing that? I see these spammy gigs on fiverr adding a load of profile backlinks and just wondering how? Do they just add the website to their sig? Do they use some sort of bot automator?

    Thanks again everyone.

    yes, they use automation tools. Xrumer is the most advanced and used one for forum profiles. Scrapebox is for blog comments...and etc..

    Profile Backlinks are those links which we make on social media web sites by registering into them for making an account. They are commonly discussed in SEO forums as if they mean something. In most cases the backlink profiles that people build are completely useless. When you register an account from somewhere you may be asked to leave your website or from a forum a signature, these links are called profile backlinks.

    Yes, exactly. There are many sites, blogs and forums where you can make your profile and link it to your website. You shouldn't be spammy though coz their admins will ban you for sure. ;)

    Profile backlink is a link figuring in aprofile site when an user creates an account ans a profile on forum or on other types of sites. Link is often displayed in the profile page or below posts as a signature. A profile backlink can be a direct source of traffic for active and vulued contributions on forums.

    I think, when you register on a forum, you can stick in some links in your profile page with BBCODE or Hyperlink, like in home page fields and etc..

    Sir, You are new but no problem. You will get many tutorial in online. Profiles back link - Normally everyone understood about forum profiles here you will make a fake profiles and put your link in the profiles. But other way you can use social media profiles by using social media sites. That more working this time.
