While this article is about ethical SEO trends, I think you just committed a big SEO blunder in trying to educate others. So, please allow me to educate you on this new trend that you forgot to pay heed to.
Your author bio (unashamedly) features the following keywords: software development company, mobile application development, web application development, Mobile Application Development, Mobile Application Development. Most of the keywords have been put just for the sake of getting that elusive anchor-text backlink. And, you must be thinking, SMT stats like PR 3, PA 39 and DA 86 will have your website for these keywords skyrocketing the Google search results. However, unfortunately, that is not how the world of SEO works Mr. Sandeep.
First of all, 5 anchor-text backlinks, all in the author bio, are just too much to bear. The link juice will distribute evenly into 5 portions, so each of the keywords will receive much less than what you presume they would. Secondly, you are pointing three links (again all from the author bio) to one website. Do you think it is ethical? Of course not! It must have already raised red flags for Google. To add to that, they all look familiar with the word 'development' stitched into each of them. Thirdly, there is barely any text around these five keywords. Google values backlinks with text around them, rich, meaningful and unique text at that. Again, just stuffing links will only create a bad impression on Google for your website. Oh, and it is certainly not ethical.
So, the links to a maximum of 2 and diversify them by linking to different websites, if not using complete unique keywords.
