I have seen software that posts to thousands of wiki pages. what's the point? Aren't wikis nofllow?
i also waiting for this reply..
Wikis are breeding grounds for content, and tons of it. Search engines like wikis because usually wikis are a good source of information.
Yes, you are right. Most of them are no-follow, but still a link is a link. No-follow just tells the search engine not to pass the "trust rank" and the link juice to the linked page. But still it is a link. They are a good source for raw links and also if you want to diversify your backlink profile.
No-follow links are strongly being speculated that affect a site's rankings. However this is not true. Whatever the purpose of buying a no-follow wiki is it is not likely to affect a site's rankings.
Perhaps adding some diversity to the profile link of a site is the reason why most people use them.
I know for a fact that you haven't tested this extensively. Wikis are a great source of mainly no follow links. No follow links can still help with link building.
Not all Wiki's are no follow!!! You should check Mac Os wiki sites. To these Wikis, you can even put pictures, what I believe increases the value of a link even more.
I do not understand why so many people focus purely on MediaWiki, while these are pure shit links and spammed to death. Turn your focus to Mac Os Wikis, and you can get a decent result. Good luck!
wiki and edu backlinks are very costly.10 normal backlinks equals to one wiki backlink or edu one.That is why people give lot of preference to them
Anyone did a case study for wiki links?
They hold more reputation than normal backlinks. It's sad that people find ways to abuse these types of links though. Soon, Google will de-value them and we'll have to find a new source of quality linking (shocker).
