    Hi,

    Now when Google is all about relevance, does'nt this also apply to backlinks?

    I mean, isn't it better to get a high PR link from a relevant site that has something to to with your content/niche than just a high PR link from some totally un-relevant site?

    Also,... can high PR link from some totally un-relevant site hurt you?


    Thanks.

    Yes

    Much better to get links from relevant theme sites

    No (if you don't link back), but obviously if won't carry the same weight as a high PR relevant link.

    What you say is correct and pretty much common sense.
    Every backlink counts but a scummy directory having your link wont count for much and as an example 100 of these links would carry the same weight as 1 decent link from a relevant site.

    So the moral is:- Go for quality backlinks not quantity. I have found that talking to webmasters and obtaining a quality backlink pays massive dividends.

    Ok, thanks. Just as I thought...

    shafty: Do you pay the webmasters for these quality backlink?

    ALL: Except from talking to webmasters and obtaining a quality backlink, are there some other ways to get these? Maybe there's a sneaky product for this as well? (hehe.. got to ask)

    Thanks.
