Is forum posting for backlinks good for SEO?

I've been thinking about purchasing some automated software to automatically posts links to my website through forum posting. From reading on forums, it seems this is very effective for SEO. Just looking for some confirmation in the present day

Despite the claims these automated links will damage your site, My advice would be to avoid them at all costs. 

This would also include buying bulk links from places like eBay / fiverr etc. Any unnatural links like this are red flags to google. 

Good advice?

Ugghh it makes me shudder. About 10 years ago this would have worked.

All I can say is "DON'T DO IT"

and it bears repeating

"DON'T DO IT"

There are more ways to get your site penalized than there are to get it to rank well.

Do not make links for the sake of links.

Recently Dejan SEO, a highly respected site and person heading it got their domain penalized by a manual action due to some old link building tactics - which were better than forum posting for links, that bit them.

It was also super cool of them to share their journey and the results. They got their penalty lifted.

Building bad back links can cause your business serious harm - do not hire any SEO person or company that engages in these tactics and certainly don't pay for an automated tool to do it for you.

Good advice?

Forum posting is definitely a best SEO technique since 2011-2019. To rank your website on search engine,I'll make High DR,PR,DA,PA, back-links to your web-site. ... All forum thread/topic will be your niche keyword related. All backlinks 100% manually based on the current Google Algorithms...

Good advice?
