    My blog posts get tweeted and retweeted a lot and get picked up on Paper.li often. This last 30 days (my first month of promotion) I see over 1000 links to various blog posts from my site on Paper.li

    My quick question is - since I read that Paper.li is not "nofollow" will I be getting any effects (positive or negative) in the search engines from these links?

    Thanks

    (I searched this question here first but didn't see an answer)

    Every link is worth something. Your key is to remember diversity, too many nofollow links and no diversity will give you a penalty.

    Thanks, but I'm not in control of paper.li links and who shares things there. I can get penalized for that?

    I'm interested in knowing this too. I have always thought, "What's the point of people setting up Paper.li accounts?" Paper.li monetizes with ads and the creater gets nothing. Are people even reading Paper.li sites or is that just for impressions from bots? I get paper.li tweets but I never click on them. Who would? But I guess they could be useful if they influenced.

    Nothing effect from Google Updates. It's called "Content Curation". Positive only. If you've doubt about this strategy. Learn it. Get it.

    Paper.li is a mess, in fact you generate with it a very low rate of subscription.
    The only advantage is the syndication aspect, but some others tools are better for that.
    The only positive usage is to enlight up your followers for free, you can syndicate their publications and publish a daily paper.
    I consider to close my paper.li since some weeks ;-)
