  19. 19. Ann Smarty Contributor to: - Search Engine Journal - Mashable - Internet Marketing Ninjas - KISS Metrics - SEOchat Founder member of: - MyBlogGuest Google’s official page for No-Follow links In general, we don’t follow them. This means that Google does not transfer PageRank or anchor text across these links. Ann’s Hustling Mind 1. However if you keep reading, they seem to be saying that Google won’t even find the page unless there are non-nofollow links to it: 2. No matter how misleading the official page sounds, numerous tests have proven that nofollow links are used for discovery (Google finds and crawls the page that has only one nofollow link)

  24. 24. Sum up - Building an Authority Site from Scratch 1. Keyword Friendly Domain Name 2. Content - Relevancy & File-type variety - Fresh - Size: 300 – 500 words 3. Site Structure - Bold/Strong/H1 tags - Title Tag - Internal linking - External linking - No-Follow / No-Index 4. Backlinks - One of the biggest issues that most websites have is that they build 1.000 backlinks to the Homepage, and about 10 – 20 backlinks to the rest of the website. Your goal is to rank EVERY CONTENT page, since then your future pages will rank high naturally. I recommend no more than 50% of your backlinks pointing to your homepage. - RSS Feeds: Submitting your RSS feeds to feed directories can create automatic backlinks to your individual post pages. - Quality backlinks: No-Follow VS Do-Follow - Anchor text 5. Content Distribution & Social Media (Digital PR)
