    Lol how? No one is going to checkout the profile of a new member.

    Let's look at a specific profile: Google+. Whenever I write a new article, I immediately post it to my Google+ profile. Sometimes within minutes, that article shows up on Google's first page if I search for my title's keywords. The SERP result is not directly to my new page; it is to my Google+ profile, where I can click the link and go directly to my new page. How much SEO benefit does that give me? I don't know, but it's certainly a positive to some extent.

    I think with these discussions people are generally talking about forum profiles.

    Personally I would not recommend this as a deliberate SEO effort. If you're part of a high quality site (Tumblr) and have a profile link it's okay. Don't hire people to create volumes of profile/guest post backlinks.

    I only bother with forum posts to drive traffic these days and not for backlinks. I put most of my time into keyword research, finding low competition keywords that I know for certain my web 2.0 link wheel strategy will rank them. You can see my proven ranking strategy and the results over at Rankers Paradise and copy the strategy to rank top of Google fast and easy.
