    Hello fellow interneters. Question

    I did some link outreach for a client and asked a blog owner to make a hyperlink where he had previously only had a brand name reference. He obliged. In that request I had put a naked URL link to my site. Now...when I go toSEOProfiler.com, I have 1000 nofollow backlink all from this blog. Trying to understand the mechanics of this and wondering if there is any potential harm in this.

    If I'm not wrong, that the link you've gotten for your client is from the homepage sidebar or footer panel of the site, right?
    If yes, then as per Google recent changes these type of links has very low impact on search value. I'd suggest you to place your link in one of his blog post/ page, that is relevant.

    Now the second question is these links are nofollow and is there any harm in this?
    It depends on the site authority, from where you're getting the link. Because authority sites like wikipedia, reddit also has nofollow pattern for outbound links. But still links from those sites has pretty much value in search engine.
    To assure the site value check metrics like PA/DA, CF/TF, Moz rank, Alexa Rank etc..

    Thanks. Yes....the post I made was simply a message to the blog owner in which I put an http link reference so he could check out my site to see that I was legitimate. Just trying to understand how that one message post could end up creating so many nofollow links. They haven't hurt my rankings as far as I can tell.
