I have hundreds, probably thousands of website pages at the top of Google and Yahoo! and the majority of them have a pagerank of 0 or 1 at best. All I am saying is that having a high pagerank is not necessary to rank well. Most serious & advanced SEO people don't even mention the term anymore.

Does this helps any way in ranking my site in SERP and helps in increasing the PR to my site.?
I won't spend my time or money to do that. You SERP ranking won't benefit much from these links.

I agree -- and everybody has to quit obsessing about pagerank! People quit obsessing about pagerank just about the time social media started kicking into high gear. SEO professionals don't even discuss the concept to any degree anymore.

First, most of those links are likely nofollowed.

This doesn't mean those links are worthless. Some of them may not be nofollow, and there may still be some "social validation" factor that the search engines take into account somehow. Beyond that, seeing your site in your profile may inspire some people who follow you to visit your site, which might bring you a small amount of direct traffic.

The main benefit to social media participation is just that... the participation. If all you're doing is creating a bunch of profiles, but not doing anything useful with those accounts, you're not going to get much benefit.

Use those accounts to build followers and establish yourself (and your company) as industry authorities. Build credibility and reach. That's the main thing social media is good for at the moment.


Very useful information plus suggestions you have given in your post. I would just like to add one thing that those links will mostly be helpful in returning some traffic to your website

Further you should with go with all the suggestions she made.

Yeah It has got nothing to do with the backlinks but definitely it helps to improve your online presence like on how many websites you have your presence and how much you are actively participating there.
