    Forum posting is the best way of creating backlinks for sites. But the question is, are forums with .org domain providing more valuable backlinks than other forums. Will forums with .org domains with PR 4 to 5 be more useful for forum posting rather than forums with .com domains with PR 4 to 5?

    First, you are starting with a premise that is wrong to begin with. Forum posting is not even close to the best way of creating links - it may be the easiest, but it is definitely not the best. The best are "contextual" links in the content of a website, blog (post, not comment), or article, and articles should be shared through networking sites, NOT through article submission sites. As far as the domain extension, with very few exceptions, the extension does not effect the value of the link. You will however, want to obtain links from a variety of site types, a variety of sites, and a variety of PR values. Anything that looks like an unusually large quantity will be a red flag that could hurt your rankings.

    The backlinks should be dofollow. As Google considering dofollow backlinks more than nofollow. It is upto the nature of the backlink. Page rank also matters.

    There is no set amount for what can be categorized as an "unusually large quanitity". However, it can be described as "substantially more than the typical amount". For example, if you are creating about twenty links a month, and suddenly start getting 100 links per month, that can be considered "unusually large", especially if they come from the same type of website. On the other hand, if 100 links come from a variety of websites, after an increase in traffic, and they don't come all at once, it may not be unusually large. Also, suddenly getting 1000 links in one day could be an unusually large quantity. Links bought in bulk are low quality, and are always sold in an unusually large quantity, no matter what the exact number is.

    In this case, you are correct. A .org extension is not going to make that much difference. However, a website with a .edu or .gov extension would provide more link juice if there is a reason for the link to be there. This is not, however, a license to go out and get bunch of links from .edu or .gov websites. Like any other link, they must look natural and should not be overused. Also I disagree with your statement that Alexa rank and PageRank are two criteria that matter most. PageRank, in particular, has become less and less important as time passed. A well-designed, informative website that strictly follows the guidelines provided by the search engines is going to get the best ranking in the vast majority of cases.

    Always keep that in mind, I really liked the answers of our Moderator here. Well, domain extensions doesn't really matter that much, some might say yes. It might be, but if you're target is to rank, it will still depend on your strategy and how are you going to gather unique and quality links.

    A link is considered a vote or endorsement of a website. The most common form of getting a link from a forum post is to add it to a signature. This is being done by members here in this forum, by members thinking they are helping their clients obtain links. Unfortunately, because a signature is added to every post a member makes, it cannot be considered an endorsement, and is considered a low-quality link by Google and the other major search engines. If a link is included in the body of the post on a reputable forum, it may be a better quality link, but I'd rather not take the chance. It still may not be considered a high-quality link. A link in the content of a blog post in a reputable blog, however, is more likely to be considered a high-quality link

    Links in forum are not enough to make our site to be ranked. We need to work hard to make it successful and to be rank also.

    If you are looking for going top in search result, then it has nothing with PR, so far I know.

    Exactly.

    Links from Articles, Blog and Directory are good way to develop SEO.

    The domain extension is not important for quality backlinks and other thing is you can get quality links through various ways, not only forum. You can do article, directory also.
