Google say Forum Links Do Not Work For SEO – Jul 16 2021
In response to the Reddit thread question, “Is Forum Posting Still Work As Link Building Method in SEO?” Google’s John Mueller said “NO.”
My opinion is that it doesn’t help you as a link in the profile page if it has nothing to do with the topic, on the contrary, I noticed that it hurts sometimes, but a link in a topic related to the website content helps. I had positions on keywords that increased mainly due to the links in 3-4 forum posts, but which were related to the topic of the site. In fact, those forums were in the first pages of results for those keywords.
Also, big sites receive a large proportion of links from forums, links to product pages, so if you want to grow a site, in addition to advertorials, to have a natural profile you also need links from forum topics.
But I repeat, no links in the user’s profile page that are not related to the content of the site.
