    what kind backlink do you guys think is better seo wise?

    a link from a not niche related site which is pr3 and has a good DA/PA authority with a low OBL
    or a site in the exact niche as mine, with pr0, low DA/PA and med-high OBL?


    would love to hear some opinions :)

    Ideally, what you want are high PR, editorially granted, niche-related, in-content links. Since these are the coelacanth of backlinks, order of importance is (generally speaking) as follows: 1.) High PR (still) --> 2.) Relevant, niche-related --> 3.) in-content links comprised of unique copy (not "Copyscape passed"), that have been editorially granted by the site owner.

    If you can get all of those in one, understand your niche's link graph, and how your competitors did what they did, you're on the bullet train to #1.


    Best,

    Niche relevant link are good for long term, if you can get both that will help you boost your ranking as well as get long term results.

    thanks for the replies, but if you could choose 1 of the above, what would it be?

    High PR links.

    I cannot emphasize this enough. No matter what anyone tells you, it's basically about PR.

    Depends on your goals, if you need long term rankings then go for niche relevant links, but if you need quick rankings but not for 1 year+ then go for just high pr backlinks.

    The weight and value of niche related backlinks are more than high pr backlinks, because they will increase your SERP instantly generate decent amount of traffic as well.

    High PA/DA related niche backlinks are the best but hard to find for non-overused niches. In my opinion PA/DA > PR; I'd choose a PR1 with DA 39 over a PR4 with DA 20. Or if you have the money build a private niche related blog network and backlink it, best links you can have.

    I'd go with niche related links if I were you - I've been penalized before for having links from "high" pr sites that weren't niche related. If it was a site you really cared about, I'd also study the content and S.E.O strategy of the sites you want to link to yours.

    High PR and a couple niche realated ones.

    If I could only get one or the other though I'd take PR anyday. You can always do forum sigs on niche related places to substitute (yes, still works) ;)

    High pr with niche relevant anchor links will do very well.

    I would get niche relevant link only if source site is somewhat big, not just a couple of pages, and again, domain has some PR. It doesn't give much SERPs improvements, but a bit of traffic. Niche relevant directories work the best for me.
    And links from high PR pages to boost authority, PR and SERPs.

    I hope this is not gonna work in long run. I surely doubt that google is gonna introduce some other update to kill the sites which have irrelevant backlinks. I would like to stick to niche backlinks thinking of long run. I am already hit by panda and dont wanna get hit again. Wanna keep this natural and ethical this time. Though they are low pr niche links but they have the impact on search results for sure.
