    Whats everyones opinions with this?

    I am talking about blog posts on these things.

    Surely a da 80+ backlink is good right?

    Interested in your thoughts.

    of course they are good
    if not for equity than for diversity sake

    one thing to keep in mind is if its a bunch of subdomains
    it isnt as strong

    so world.sci.comm.harvard.edu is weaker than harvard.edu/blog

    Some are better than others, but keep a natural link profile and you won't go far wrong. This includes a mix of different types of links.

    Good for diversification. But don't expect any ranking improvement from that.

    Be careful about the type of links. Avoid spammy ones and the ones very easily accessible by anyone.. If you`re interested in strong results.

    Getting a DA 80+ backlink is easy, dont get fooled by that . I would say it holds value if the PA is also decent.

    Harvard, UCLA type ones ( ie Quality ) are worth getting for diversity.

    Chinese and Indian or EDUX aren't.
