    Getting an article published on these big news sites are difficult. How much seo benefits do you see if you get an relevant article published on a high authority news site? I'm asking this because I was doing a backlink search of a competitor and I found he has a few links from news sites. They are all top tier news sites with a very high domain authority. My second question would be has anyone tried to pitch a news article?

    Hi mate,

    It's not that hard to get a press release distributed.
    There are quite a few BST's providing such services at pretty good prices.

    Although most links coming from news articles are no-follow they do have value and they should represent an important part of your seo strategies.Beside that,press releases are a great way to draw media attention,grab organic leads and establish credibility and expertise (especially if you're a new company and you need something to point to that shows your credibility).

    Acotut is right, press releases aren't as hard to get as you might think.

    Check out netmoney1's BST.

    Thanks for the tips, but I'm not talking about press releases. When I said news sites I'm talking about new york times or forbes where they write an relevant article on your niche then link back to your website.

    Based on the video I watched on GoogleWebmasterHelp's channel on YouTube, Matt Cutts said that pagerank will be divided into the number of outgoing links on a post or a page.

    I am managing my clients' Google News-approved (news.google.com) websites. Sometimes, they do tell me to write news about a specific company or service and put a link somewhere else. Are you putting up your own news website?

    Presumably your competitor outranks you so there is part of your answer right there.

    Links from these big news sites do help a fair amount but that's not to say they are a silver bullet solution for ranking a site. They often have other benefits for SEO though such as other sites republishing the article or taking the same story and writing it in their own words (and hopefully retaining your backlinks). And then there is the traffic of course; many people would agree that a backlink that gets clicked on thousands of times is worth more than one that never gets clicked on (Google can easily track this).

    How do you get such links? Normally you have to have an angle that nobody else has, something unique. How did your competitor get their links?

    Those are Platinum Quality links. Forbes? NY Times?
    Not only are you getting a (most likely do follow) link from an editorial or opinion piece (not a press release) you have an unimaginable reader base which means traffic. Why do we do SEO? Traffic! If you had enough of these links you wouldnt need Google at all because you are getting loads of traffic from these types of sites. The irony is that these will also help with SEO.

    On to point B, if the article with your link in it is interesting enough people will link to it, giving you an organic 2nd tier of links. Better yet, some people may link to YOUR site after reading the article giving you more organic 1st tier links.

    You cannot measure the impact a link that has in a week or a month, that type of link CAN bring you benefits for several months or even years if the topic is evergreen.

    google search PRweb - google is looking for good backlinks, but no one ever talks about the how powerful anchor tags are. You should focus on making sure your 5-8 tags are below 25% on your backlinks. use ahrefs to find out your % - if the tags and your ranking will be #1 on all those keywords.

    Authority sites have very high trust with the search engine as a result of their age, quality, size. If you get authority links from Good legit sites can bring tremendous ranking power to your site.

    I have just got a genuine editorial link from a very well known UK magazine.

    Only got it yesterday so I have no idea yet what its impact will be.

    I'll let you know in a week or two if there has been any impact.
