    Links from .ac.uk blogs


    Hi All

    following up on the recent posts about gaining back links from .edu blogs I decided to look for some blogs on .ac.uk sites (uk equivalent of .edu).

    Everyone I found had rel="nofollow" on any comments (on those that allowed posts), I made a few posts on some blogs anyway to see if any would stick.

    I then completely forgot about it.. until I checked my backlinks in google webmaster tools and all of a sudden i had an extra 60 backlinks from this .ac.uk blog, and the best part was that these links do not have the rel="nofollow" tag!

    How did this happen? Well i trailed back and saw that this blog was showing a list of recent comments down the side of all pages on that blog, and it had my link in there, but on this sidebar there is no nofollow tag

    My only fear now is that as there are so many links from just one site that Google may think it is spam.. any ideas anyone?

    Correct !

    But links from different pages of a single domain deep linking to your domain with different anchor texts has greater marginal value.
