Google’s John Mueller once more stated that dropping hyperlinks in boards for SEO functions will not aid you rank higher in Google. In response the Reddit thread query “Is Forum Posting Still Work As Link Building Method in SEO?” John Mueller stated “No.”
The one who wrote the query added “I need to create good backlinks for my web site is discussion board posting performs a significant function within the off-page submission of SEO.” In which John posted his two character response, “no.” Well, three characters in case you embrace the interval.
Of course, there are a number of of us within the Reddit thread that declare these hyperlinks do work. So you possibly can strive it in case you like, however I think there are higher locations to attempt to get “pure” hyperlinks than discussion board threads which are seemingly nofollowed by default anyway.
