    Hi, I've made my first 10 backlinks within the last 2 days. And i've only just heard about 'nofollow' links. All the links i've made so far are do-follow, should some of them have been nofollow? Should i ping them as well? I know i've made a lot of threads today, it's just my first time with seo. thank you

    Don't panic, just keep making links. Doesn't matter if they are do follow or not.

    Try to mix up the types of links ie: Web 2.0's, Local link swaps, Directories, Citations etc etc...

    Other than that you should be fine, just keep going at a steady pace and increase it slowly as you start pushing more power into the domain.

    Keep the anchor text diversity fairly decent too. For the first couple of weeks i wouldn't even worry about anchor text. Just push LSI keywords and the domain url as anchors. Get to the meaty stuff later on! For the first month or so your just trying to set your stall out as carefully and with a strong foundation as you can.

    After a while you should add some "no follow" links as well.
    Here you have a complete article which will help you to make an idea about SEO:

    Yes - link diversity is just as important as link count or "quality."

    In fact, many nofollow links do carry power, especially high quality ones, through mirror sites and the like.

    Yes, ping your links. They won't count unless their indexed in google.

    Don't intentionally make links rel=nofollow. Just build links on engines that by default set OBLs to nofollow if you really want nofollow links.
