    Hello guys ! Lately I've been doing some tests with xrumer . I bought few domains and installed PHPBB and SMF on them . I created few thousands posts on them with random links . Forum posts are indexed in google but seems that Ahrefs, Majestic and few other backlink checkers dont count the forum posts as backlinks. Why is that ? I tried adding links in the forum footer as well , but same thing .
    If I build links with xrumer to other phpbb or smf forums , links are counted on ahrefs .

    I used html AHREFS TAG and bbcode but in vane. Also tried to create image backlinks for random lniks on same forums. Forum links are not counted. Anyone knows why ? thankyou

    Well, obviously it is not enough time.

    Heck it can take Google 3-4 weeks sometimes to find links. Ahrefs, Majestic, etc. have nowhere near the resources of Google to crawl and index the internet. It could take them months. They might never find the links. They only find a fraction of what Google actually knows about.

    I wouldn't really worry about it. Whether or not Ahrefs or Majestic are aware of the links really does not matter.

    Forums links are shown in ahrefs like all other links, but depending on how strong the domains you used are linked, Google will take quite a time to crawl your "forums". What I don't get: Why create shitty forums full or nonsense? I mean in the same time you could create an account in a really popular forum, make a few useful posts, drop a post with a link, make a few more uselful posts. Now you have a link from a post in a forum with actual readers, a link that's way better than any spammy autogenerated stuff.

    Either yet to crawl or just not interested to crawl. However, it is important for Google to see it and they will eventually see it if at all your links are in tact till then.
