    I meant to add backlinks in title, sorry.

    Since I got into a lot of HA niche directories I get lots of do-follow backlinks, including some other niche related "guest posting" blogs with decent DA of 20-30.

    However I've been posting over 40 blogs on 5 different amazing niche related sites but the links are no-follow. I dont expect to get organic traffic from these articles but the sites have DA's of 60-80. Is there any benefits for increasing my rankings at this point. I'm happy to have a percentage of no-follow/do-follow in my portfolio but regret wasting all that great content i bought off textbroker.

    I screwed up right?

    You need do-follow contextuals for an increase in ranking but all other links types serve a good purpose too.

    If those blogs are having the good amount of traffic then you can get the good amount of visitors traffic to your blog. So, the no-follow links will get you the good traffic and your website looks natural to the search engines.So, if your website gets the traffic then your website as stronger and you would like to ranking then build more quality backlinks from the high authority sites with Do-follow.

    Certainly no follow too helps, as we see most of our do follow links converts into no follow by administrators. As per your question get those links and they will boost in someway. You have to build links in natural way not all ********.

    Ok I always thought it should be 50/50 or so and to all the other replies. I dont expect to get traffic from these blog post, they are paid directories for my niche that allow for blog post, obviously to get free content on their site but they all have killer DA/PA/TF

    It helps because of link diversity; however, I would suggest you focus on more do-follow links.
