I don’t believe anyone knows for sure. Personally, I think that backlinking is overemphasized by many and is not, in my view, the key to achieving high positioning on the search engines.I think it is probably true that search engine algorithms are probably getting sharper at detecting this type of activity so the future may not be too bright should you use it. The problem with many of us who’ve lived with so many SEO techniques over the years is that it’s hard to know sometimes exactly what works the most efficiently as the changing Algorithms can alter that. There is no doubt though that on-page SEO with great content will work the best! If your website is poorly designed with content that is not of particular interest to others then any advantage will be short-lived.
