    Hi Geniuses

    I've a news blog site and i am always trying to get link back from top ranked news sites like Huffintonpost, CNN, BBC Blog etc.....but all of them provide no follow link. Do i get any benefit from those links?

    Not for your rankings, only for the diversity of your backlinks profile.

    You get massive benefit from those; Not only because of the link (even if nofollow) but mainly from the brand awareness and recognition you can generate.

    Be clear and transparent and you can get a lot of traffic; traffic that comes from those places to your site are users that have a high interest in your topic and potentially on your company. This is reflected on the traffic statistics and it will certainly boost your SEO efforts.

    All in all, without a doubt it helps every single aspect of a marketing campaign. Everything works in a symbiotic manner so go ahead with it.

    If you got 75k visitors from one comment then forget rankings. Just keep driving traffic that way and forget about rankings, which will no doubt give you far less traffic anyway.

    I always think people get so obsessed with their google position when other traffic methods are right in front of them.

    How do you make your links clickable in HuffingtonPost? I added my URL and it's not clickable. Any help will be appreciated.
