John Mueller said that profile links in forums or social media profiles are enough to get you ranked in Google searches. John said no and left it at that, as it was probably the best way to answer it. But the question was “Does profile creation and profile links work?” This is a technique used by many SEOs to build backlinks by creating profiles on every site and placing their website links there. If you get to know what Google thinks of this, then some SEO responded “yes” and then said, “Profile links are good enough to develop the authority and ranking.” If you keep them active and post something on those profiles at least once a week.
After this, John replied to No. Heo’s post on Twitter. This is a technique used by many SEOs to build backlinks by creating profiles on every site and placing their website links there. What does Google think of this? He also said something similar a few days ago on Twitter.
Here are a few key areas where you have seen “no-follow” links, and they have a really good impact, providing a lift in the ranking and overall website domain authority:
- Over-optimized websites
- A few no-follow links in the backlink profile
- Anchor text is over-optimized.
