So last week Matt Cutts decided to tell everyone that Pagerank sculpting and the use of nofollows to stop page rank leakage doesnt work. Like many of us I've spent the last few days pondering over all the work I did to *stop* the flow of pagerank on my site only to have this bombshell dropped last week. Then I thought of a way in which this might work to people's advantage. I'll give you an example using an article site but this can be used on any site that allows you to submit content. In the past few months article sites haven't been passsing as much juice to external links but I wonder if this little trick might boost things a little! Write your article as per normal and submit it to article site(s). For this to work, the article site must allow commenting. Once approved your article (with a nice anchor text backlink to your site) will begin passing some juice - but not much. Now find all the articles in that site that already have some juice - i.e. are reasonably old, have some backlinks, pr etc. "keyword: site:articlesite.com (with seoquake I believe you can organise these by PR) Go to all the other articles and write some comments linking to the article you just wrote - try and use the anchor text you are gunning for when linking. This will build a number of nofollow internal links to your article and hopefully - You should get link juice from the pages that have it (based on matt's comments) The site administrators wont care too much (since its internal and nofollow) The strength of your anchor text will be boosted by having other similar anchor text links pointing to it. Yeah I'm feeling a bit anti-Google for not letting that one out of the bag earlier - but no matter what changes Google makes there's always a way the seo can use it to their advantage. hope this helps. thanks is appreciated.
