    Does a link from squidoo count as a backlink?

    Are all links from squidoo a no follow?

    I've checked a squidoo lens that was interlink with other lenses, but when I check the backlink for this particular squidoo lens it has no backlinks from squidoo lenses... And this lens have been indexed fro quite a while now and still no backlinks from other squidoo lenses...

    Any one care to explain?

    Thanks a bunch...

    PS: I think i should make a more useful thread for my 100th post don't I? :D

    Hmmm... on the squidoo lenses that I just looked at, website links on a lens are ******** but links to recommended books to ama zon are nofollow.

    That kind of suggests that the website links should count, I would think?

    How did you check for backlinks? with google or yahoo? Or some other site or tool ;)

    Cheerio :)

    FINALLY!!!!

    Someone replied! Thank you...

    Made me think that no one cared about me for a while....

    Anyway, I use this tool here:

    Code:
    http://squidutils.com/backlinks.php
    I don't really understand it. I have got a few squidoo that interlinks and yet did not show up as backlinks... bummer...

    Yes links from Squidoo count as backlinks, as long as your lens is not considered "work-in-progress".

    You need to make sure the lens has 3 modules. If it doesn't it will not come out of Work in Progress (WIP) status. You can still view it but Squidoo have all the links set up as no-follow regardless of how they are coded.

    :) this plugin was recommended by someone else from BHW (in another thread).

    Code:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5687
    
    
    Perhaps this tool might help you gain a little more information?

    Of course, with this add-on, you'll need to use Firefox instead of IE as your browser :)

    Cheerio :)
