    if they are MacOS .gov wiki's they won't help much, they shouldn't hurt though. $5 each is a bit steep. Get yourself a good footprint and you can make 100's in a day.

    If they're not .gov wiki's, send him my way at that price.

    SEO-wise, it will not help.

    It won't help but it will help if you trying to make your seo profile look more diverse.

    It won't help much but diversifying your backlinks is a good idea

    too expensive, not worth it for the price.

    It will help but you won't notice the big difference. The price is to high. You can easily create such links alone.

    I think that for that price is not so useful

    People who say nofollow links don't count don't know what they're talking about, it is only one of many factors G's algorithm uses to determine a links juice. Proof? MediaWiki sites are rel nofollow and some of my bots run 100% MediaWiki sites which I have indexed and ranked new MNS entirely with to start - that's right not one single ******** in the mix.

    However I agree $5 a pop is a rip off by far, as an example we sell bots that will do .edu and .govs that cost around $0.25 a link and you get the bot so you can auto blast to all your sites/pages. Most service providers will charge you around $0.10 a link as they're automating it as well. Paying even $1 a pop is too much IMO and unless your niche has no competition you're going to need more than 5 links to see any movement.
