    Hey guys,

    This scam is going big after recent changes to huffingtonpost contributors system, which is now free to create and post. But it will not be indexed and the link is nofollow, either way it contains 0 SEO value, moreover your post will not be featured on main section of the site which has 0 traffic value as well.

    I have seen people selling this type of links for 50-$100, $200-$300 or even $500-$600 on various groups and forums.

    People, DON'T FALL FOR THIS, these links worth less than the weight of my balls, seriously though, ask here before you buy.

    Have a good day.

    Just curious, what is the weight?
    Honestly, I have seen 100s of replies here and a lot of sellers outside here who claim to provide huff post for $100.
    Thanks for the warning. I hope people will not fall for this and expect to rank with a nofollow-noindex-huff link :3

    Well sadly i have already seen a few people fell for it, but it seems they still haven't figured it out

    How is 200-300$ per inner nowhere to be found page link peanut? These links are supposed be free.

    But i get your points and you are right though.

    This is not entirely true.
    Imagine as you start blog on WordPress where you get DA 100 but PA is 0.You must build up authority as regular PBN.I know how and this links worth a lot even more than huff post made from writer.
    I tell this because I'm also Huffington post seller.

    Uh no, huffpost contributor links are open to everyone. You can literally make an account right now and place your article over there Furthermore, they are noindex, so Google doesn't even see it. No follow might have some value (like Wikipedia links), but noindex is completely useless

    If it is the weight of your balls in gold, you contradicted yourself
    If it is their weight in aluminum, then you have proven your point.
    But yeah, a no-index, no-follow link on Huffpo is as uselful as a no-index, no-follow web2.0.

    Well i really hope this thread won't go to the weight of my balls direction but all i can tell you guys is that i definitely don't have the balls of steel =) (cry in the corners)

    I will have to respectfully disagree, It only worths some SEO value if it actually get indexed even if the link is nofollow. You can't compare this type of link to web 2.0s, because for web 2.0s you actually build indexable assets that can accumulate great value over time.

    You can definitely build a brand driving traffic into these type of links, but after reaching a threshold of visitor, you account will get manually reviewed, so if you are into BH shit or have a shitty website then it really doesn't worth your time. On the other hand, if your posts get approved, you will have the priviledge of having your posts indexed + ******** links.

    Anyway, well my point of this thread is that don't get scammed, you can do these type of links yourself.

    I came across this article about the new system they have there last week. http://www.carefulcents.com/get-published-on-the-huffington-post/

    The article goes over the same issues you mentioned as well (no link equity, anyone can join, et cetera)

    The writer of the article mentioned that you can at least say your site was "seen on The Huffington Post" now.

    You know you can die in peace when people are more interested in the weight of your balls rather than a link on Huffington Post. :)
