We all know that the URL in our WebmasterWorld profile appears when we check our sites backward Links therefore it must be a PR4 or above. So even though it appears as grey in the Google toolbar - it surely carries some PR.

If it does have (invisible) PR then is this boosted by making lots of posts to the forums beacuse every post has a link to your User Profile? Should we all be trying like crazy to post messages, however inconsequential?

If this was true then all those crazy neurotics who insist on talking about the update will find their site's PR considerably enhanced. Oh, and those who are still exasperated about the PR0 penalties - if they ever get that penalty lifted - will go up to PR7 just on the PR transfer from their contributions to Webmasterworld.

I think it should probably be more than 100 but then again I'm fairly new here so my vote doesn't really count. If I wanted that sort of link all you have to do is post something to
and you get a lovely little page rank 6 to 7 page linking to your site and it's all your own. Saying that I can hardly understand a word of what goes on in their let alone consider posting something useful to it ;-).

I think that it is far too much work for one little link but saying that I'm sure there will be people out there who won't think twice about adding to the next pointless thread about googles dance now they know they get a little reward for it.

The best thing to do would be to start a new thread in the Linking Forum [webmasterworld.com].

I'm sure you will be able find some help there.

>> You should make it much higher than 100, I think its to easy to hit 100 without to much work<<

Yes, most certainly... it should be 544.

>> Everytime you post, you are leaving a resume<<

No wonder I'm unemployable.

The only reason I don't have a link in there is plain old paranoia. They'll get me if they know who I am!

I think it was Mayor or MakeMeTop who said that we are all spammers (sorry if I mis-quote) meaning that SEO itself is potential manipulation and could be viewed as spamming. Now... if a search engine took that view.. one strategy could be to zip through WebmasterWorld and hammer every profile site. It wouldn't be very clever of them, but from the history of some of these outfits (not all) it isn't impossible either.

And you thought I was joking about the paranoia?

hehe... Napoleon - it's not paranoia if they really _are_ out to get you.

Applause for that one.. very true for me too.

Haven't got 100 postings yet and thus still have the NOINDEX. Google didn't care and spidered my user profile anyway...:)
