... Has anybody ever seen any backlinks from profile pages listed in the "Links to Your Site" section of Google's Webmaster Tools? That's a test I use to judge whether or not Google gives any value to a backlink.
Just because you don't see any backlinks from form profiles when using a backlink checker tool, it doesn't mean Google isn't counting it.
