Is it safe or risky to create MANUALLY backlinks from forums ?
And i mean for forums with page rank from 3 to 7. Not with zero or 1 ranking.
I think it is ok if you donít post all the time, or if you donít spam and just act like normal people. But someone told me, that even this is bad for google and my site will be punished.
What is your opinion ?

Manual backlinks are not harmful to your site in any manner. If your website is having backlinks from forums only, then your website may get penalized by Google. Focus to build backlink from all the effective Off page techniques.

First of all manual back-links are not harmful to your site. In fact manual back-links are helps you more and it is consider in legal way of creating a back-links. If you are using tools to create the back-links than yeah sure it is harm your site more than your expectation.

Manual backlinking if done with no intention of spamming, can do wonders for your website SEO. However, you have to be really careful when it comes to picking the sites from which you intend to get the links from.

Create manual link building is always appreciate because SE loves organic or natural back links. That kind of back links never hurt your site.

Everything you do, manually or automated, can move the needle. What we can't predict is the effect (negative or positive). So, if you are going to build links, try aiming for building relationships. Of course we want links, but in my experience, building relationship first will result to even more success in link building.

I also agree with alexjames212. Algorithmically speaking, you have to pick which website you are building links from.

Honestly, I still find directory submission an effective strategy, but I don't build links from dozens of them all at once. I even ignore most of directories. I pick niche-specific directories. Doing so, I make sure that I am crafting the listing title, and description very well. Not just the typical submission-based link building.

In my opinion, build links with targeted traffic in mind. For me it's okay that you build 1 to 4 links per week that generates traffic to your website than building links and aiming to move the needle positively.
