    i have a blog which is 1.5 months old

    i created another blog 15-20 days ago in same niche

    1. shud i give a site wide link or a contextual link ? other blog is on a diff c class ip..

    2. how powerful are guest posts on blogs that are not related to ur niche.. i mean if i have a real estate blog and i do guest posts on a blog in a tech niche ? will it be considered a powerful link given the fact that guest post comes from a pr 2-4 domain ? dont tell me a link is a link :D

    3. UAW and AR to money site i.e. is 1.5-2 month old is a gud idea?

    1. Contextual links are always going to be better.

    2. See #1, Google seems to look at the content surrounding the link not the site as a whole. If you do a blog post then you will have a page mostly of related content plus while the post is on the front page of the site it will also be buried in related content. Is it as good as coming from a site completely about your topic? Maybe not but they do seem to work.

    Remember nobody really knows the rules. Google does not share that information. All we have is what we know by testing things out to see what works. Test some stuff out yourself and see what gives you the best results.

    3. why not?

    thanks for answers :D

    talking more about 2, since i will be posting a guest post on a blog which is completely unrelated to my niche so obviously i will be posting content which is related to the blog which i am writing on a guest post and not related to my own niche since webmasters will only accept content that is only related to their niche and not mine obv.

    example - i post a full guest post on make money online blog
    and at the end of the article/or the begining webmaster gives me ******** links with keywords related to real estate.

    will google frown on this since link is surrounded by unrelated content even if the blog which i am posting to is a decent high pr blog? or am i better off posting to more web 2.0s and article directories instead of these guest posts ? :rolleyes:

    I would give it a shot and see what happens. What's the worst that could happen? Another benefit in having a follow link in your post is that people will click on it out of curiousity.

    No link from a high PR blog is ever going to be bad so no sense in not trying it out. Are you going to be posting on just one blog or do you have a bunch of them to post on?

    Why does it have to be an either or thing? Do all three, a variety of links is always better anyway.
