I'm noticing it from some time that google has stopped indexing backlinks from forums.It indexes the page but not the backlink on that even the forums are do-follow and also google is also removing all raw backlinks...
Have someone else also noticed that ??

    Google does consider backlinks from forums... But Google devalue and drop irrelevant links.

    If your backlinks from forums are irrelevant, they will be dropped.

    Sometimes we don't know what Google is doing, so it may look like your links aren't being indexed, but trust in Google. They are being indexed just fine.

    Hi
    Forums links are used to built the back links. But google will consider the back links from forums and even though you have many links from one forum it will be considered as a one domain back link.
    But, this was not true as you have expected . Google still indexing the back links from all dofollow forums.

    google does not show all your backlinks when you search. it wil show you a good number of backlinks in your webmaster tools. but on the whole, you never know google!

    i can personally say that google has not stopped indexing forum backlinks! they are still being indexed

    They are still shown. I used several link checker tools and most of them do not show my forum backlinks. But, my campaign is moving forward meaning I have goood backlinks pointing towards my site.
