    A friend of mines just got accepted to be a contributor to Huffington Post. They don't accept too easily although he was quite lucky to get In. They don't pay you or anything but I assume it looks on a resume or something but does it do much for SEO? Like placing links in a post back to your site.

    He also told me that when he searched his post title, it came up on the search results. So it got indexed. Considering people have mentioned that contributors don't get their stuff indexed.

    It's good for SEO if you have links to the right sites, not all sites though. But remember, you're helping them grow THEIR site, for free. A volunteer employee, great for them, waste of your time. Well, time you can spend a helluva lot better and make some actual money. Just my opinion.

    I think a contributor at Huff Post can make very good money. Check out the marketplace and see how much they're selling links to such sites. He just need to know how to do it properly.

    Contributor accounts have a nofollow link in them.

    There is little SEO value for them but there are ways to earn from them and make it worth his while.

    Thanks for the replies, always wondered about it... Yeah I noticed people are willing to pay a good amount of money just to have a link back to their site in a post. Surely Huffpo wouldn't like that lol
