Something on my mind...Do you think email addresses are counted as backlinks in some way? Like a soft brand mention or social signal type thing?

I know I don't see the email links in the Google search console or research tools so not directly benefit but I wonder if they count for anything? Why I think this is because most places that rel=nofollow your URL don't nofollow the email address so maybe benefit from using your domain?

Your thoughts?

This is a brilliant question.
I "think" no.
Would not surprise me though if they counted as a fraction of a link at some point years ago.

I think it can be calculated as a post, page or a part of website. Like a subdomain but it will not be a backlink for sure.

Echoing the no's on this one. If this were a strategy I could see Google slamming this door before you could blink lol.
