It’s a no brainer for getting back links to your site, courtesy of Google themselves. Every bit helps and any way you can use Googles services has to be a good thing right? All bow to Google!
Set up your own Google Profile.
You just need to fill the information that they ask about yourself, include the URL of your website, add some pictures and bingo, one more backlink. As long as you add enough information, your profile will be displayed in Google’s search results, and it should count as a normal backlink because Google does not use the nofollow attribute on the website links.
This service is also useful if you are not worried with building links, because it gives you an opportunity to create a profile page and possibly to get it ranked for your name on the first page of results.
So what are you waiting for? Go set up your own profile.
