    Just got scrapebox today and play around some/read information on BHW.

    I found a lot of people talk about auto-approve blog and I can see its potential.

    But what I wonder is that, most blogs now do no-follow; will that means even if I can come up with 1,000 auto approve blogs, I will get nothing back posting in them if all of them are doing no-follow?

    Or it's just don't matter, and no-follow can help my site ranks anyway (even if it's not giving any PR)?

    Any thoughts on this?

    - Nofollow links can bring users
    - nofollow links bring the Google-bot to your new site
    - nofollow links can make your total link-mix of follow and nofollow links look more natural thus indirectly helping you with your rankings when just follow-links look unnatural to Google
    - nofollow do not help in achieving better rankings by themselves.

    I know that there are other opinions out there, thats just what I have read and experienced.

    I agree fully apart from the third point.

    There are so many websites which will never get a nofollow link, for example informational or educational websites.

    To internet marketers, it might seem that most of the links on the internet are nofollow but this is not the case. Nofollow links make up a very small proportion of all the links on the internet.

    Google will never punish in any way for a lack of nofollow links.

    If you guys have gotten down to worrying about follow or nofollow you must be super-professionals. My point is...the difference is so miniscule it is not worth wasting your time or excluding so many easy and good backlinks.

    I get links period. I have one adsense site that has 4 #1's in google and generates approx $500-600/month and all I have done to it is xrumer and scrapebox links over time. I am sure I have many nofollows but I dont care, nor did it hurt anything.

    I also have e-commerce sites that generated over $2.5mm in sales this year. Can you guess whether I only look for followed links for those too? You are right, that thought never enters into my consciousness because it doesnt matter in the long run. LINKS LINKS LINKS is all you need to worry about.

    Once and for all, forget the follow no follow issue!

    google do not give PR juice to it but still it can bring bot to you site also , other search engine can give you good worth in ranking.

    Thanks

    Not this again...

    Theres at least one topic per week on this very same subject, and it has been answered zillions of times already. Its getting boring...

    If you mass comment, you might be able to hit a df sometimes.

    However imo commenting is NOT the best way to achieve front row links to your site, unless you got a real killer blogs list. I apply them to the link structure as a low tier. That I can get quickly and in quantity.

    There are other link types that can have higher pr. and are easily anchored with your keywords. Think blogposts and forum profiles.

    Im not paying attention to do-follow/no-follow as getting both is 100% better then getting only the do-follow. If you really don't want to get no-follow (as I've stated I don't know why) just try Blog-Engines and basically any other engines that are do-follow by default.

    I have found its better to do both than just do-follow

    Also backlink to your other backlinks (linkwheel) this will help a huge amount as i found out myself

    My point is that I can use my time find all the d0follow links I require, as I know of some other ways to get links besides blasting wordpress nofollows with scrapebox. It's easier to blast for nofollows with sbox, but because they have a much lower value than d0follows, it's not the optimal use of one's resources. There is waste involved in the process.

    In IM, your time and resources are precious. It matters whether nofollow links work or not, because you can choose to dedicate all resources to finding and exploiting the best link sources and avoid wasting resources on those links which will help out less.

    Also, the "looking natural" idea is beyond ridiculous. Nofollow links will do no harm, and bring benefits from spider exposure and real visitors, but to have zero nofollows will never raise a flag. It's common for legitimate sites to have very very few or zero nofollow links.

    It might work the other way though - if all you have is nofollow links, it would not be outside the realms of possibility for Google to view you with suspicion as all your links are supposedly "user generated" (original point of "nofollow") and not "editorially approved".

    As for the SERP benefits:

    1 - We know that d0follow links help in the serps
    2 - We do not know for sure if nofollow links help or not, and the majority of evidence points to them not helping (although there is plenty of strictly anecdotal evidence on this forum). In other words, devoting manual or scrapebox time to these links is a gamble, however small.

    It makes 100% sense to concentrate on d0follow if you can. Many people, however, don't have this ability yet and so they must believe that any link is brilliant. Not all links are equal.

    No follow links affects serps only in special cases,google and bing recently announced that twitter and facebook links affects SERPS.Twitter is nofollow but it still increases authority.Many people say that Wikipedia links also increases authority.

    It's all about your goals.

    Do-follow links help build page rank and authority, which increase your organic results in google.

    No-follow does not build page rank, but it does still provide direct traffic to your site.

    I would say that if you are doing highly-targetted, manual link placing, then no-follow links certainly help. Otherwise, probably forget them.
