    Quick question about linking to authority sites.

    Should these be D0-f0ll0w?

    Is it okay to link to them from a side bar widget, within the post or both?

    I'm trying something new on one of my blogs that seem to always take a hit from Google even after recovering my rankings.

    I would link do-follow.

    sidebar or widget or both is fine.

    I have had good success linking to an authority site from my homepage - I believe it helps rankings.

    Great, thanks for the information.

    I will post the outcome of my test in a few days to see if what i'm going to try will make a difference in things for my main blog.
