You're doing the right thing, but maybe some websites on which you are posting are really restrictive. Anyway, welcome here, you won't have this problem on FSR forum, I promise Wink

Instead of answering to the questions better we can create a profile in forum websites to create a backlinks for our website.

You are likely being banned and marked as a spammer, because your content is unsolicited. Consider the actual meaning of the term, "SPAM" -> Unsolicited, indiscriminate messages, communications or content.

If you are advertising something somewhere without permission, it is SPAM. If the content is not relevant, it is SPAM.

I've also noticed slight grammatical discrepancies in your post here. If English isn't your first language, maybe make mention of it? There are many automated spambots that garble posts and have frequent spelling and grammar errors, and if a moderator or administrator sees your posts and it has similar discrepancies, they may be mistaking you for an automated spambot, not realising that you are a human.

Best bet? If you're unfamiliar with what is and is not tolerated at a community, just ask. From my experiences, most communities will be happy to tell you what they do and don't allow if you ask them first.

That, by most standards, is considered a form of spamming (specifically, profile spamming), and will get you both banned and reported at the majority of online communities I know of.

By many standards, it is considered a form of blackhat SEO tactics.

Example: Imagine you're at a coffee shop with friends, having a private conversation, about.. Coffee. A stranger - Someone you do not know - Walks up to you, and, without introducing themselves, without saying who they are, and without invitation, throws a bundle of leaflets and catalogues on your table advertising something that you have no interest in, which both disrupts your conversation and makes it harder to drink your coffee, because you now have leaflets and catalogues to contend with. How would you feel? How would you react?

I'm not saying you can't advertise or use this practise at all; However, seeking appropriate permissions and solicitation is vital, if you want to make sure your name doesn't end up as mud.

Same situation: This salesman introduces themselves first, before handing you catalogues and leaflets, and asks your permission first, before placing them on the table. How do you feel now? How do you react?

Food for thought.

If you only register on a forum to do this, you are a spammer and deserve being banned and your details reported to various spam preventing databases.
