  26. Hello all,

    Can you confirm backlink from gravatar will get indexed in google, because I didn’t see link from gravatar in my google webmaster tool.

  27. Now Gravatar is giving Nofollow link. However it is good and seems natural.

  28. Well, it no longer works. Gravatar is removing anything after the URL in single quotes and replacing it with nofollow. I suspect it does this when you save the profile.

  29. its also not working for me.
    so sad

  30. Very helpful article. Thank you.

  31. Wow. It works well. gives me alot of traffic in few days. Thanks for sharing this informative idea with us

  35. This doesn’t work anymore. Links in profile description get auto formated and rel=”nofollow” gets added.

  36. Gravatar is just one of the many profile link building sites out there. Here are a few helpful posts that compile a list of sites where you can create an online profile and drop your link.

  37. Can you help me to link my display name to my website please?

  38. Hello,

    Just landed from here after spying on a competitor and noticed that he’s using this trick to get quick backlinks from other sites. I think much has changed but I wonder how to get the link to show on my name when I comment on WordPress Sites. I can see most comments here have the links tagged on their names, which helps to generate a backlink.
