    Hey guys, I just had a couple questions regarding backlinks from "different" places than usual.

    1. Do backlinks from sites like Flippa help at all, or does Google not take those into effect given the nature of the site?

    2. What about backlinks from sites like Upwork? Do those count at all?


    I'm not trying to build my portfolio with these, just genuinely curious!

    if your website niche is about selling/buying websites or about freelance business and stuff then yes flippa or upwork links should matter.

    Relevancy is important, and I think Upwork cloak outbound links so there isnt any juice there.

    If Google can crawl the links then yes, they do count.

    Check the cache version of the page you want to use to see if links are recognized there.

    Just always bear in mind two things: relevance and quality. These are two most important when it comes to backlinks.
