    hi guys,
    any advantage to building not-follow links?
    I just bought a packet of SB trackback and trying to sort out the do follows but there isn't much .
    Could you help me out on how to use this packet the best way?

    also do N/A links if we get lucky and are do-follow do anything for ranking?

    Exactly..

    When you only have do-follow links google knows that you are probably unnaturally gaining links and will most likely eventually get penalized because of it.

    Ex:

    I am going after electronic cigarette keywords for one of my affiliate sites. The competitors in front of me we at the time, Modern Vapor, Absolutely Ecigs, and Pure Cigs. When you looked at their links in SeoMoz, they basically had 90%+ do follow.. Needless to say these guys are on the back pages now.

    Link diversity is the key, no one type of link will efficiently keep you up in the SERPs. Just keep building how you would normally see links happen.

    - Press Release/Article/Social Network to Main Site (preferably an interior page)
    - then book mark, web 2.0 etc, to the above links
    - blog comment, RSS, and forum profile the above links
    - Then ping second tier.

    This seems natural to me and seems like google at this point. It is what might actually happen in real life, so if you are not spamming out the wazoo, this should work for now.

    This is johnsonasu35's free tip of the day lol jk...

    qft

    plus, you do actually get some traffic from clickers. i also read a thread recently where someone ran a test by only backlinking with no follow links and they were able to rank

    Yes, they are a lot less spammed, by definition, so if you have a white-hat on-theme comment, you will get real traffic.

    nofollow links are fantastic because most people are so hungup on doodoofollow they actually do count in google's eyes

    among other things, they contribute towards your IP link diversity
