    backlink value advise needed


    Hi there, I newbie looking for some backlink value advise. Here the stats:-

    1.) hotel - Langkawi Forum - TripAdvisor
    The above link is via forum under anchor text which has a PR 7 with a bit of relevant to my website. The link is nofollow. Look for Ahmad2237.

    2.) Malaysia Asia: Hotels around KLIA / LCCT Airport, Sepang
    The above link is via blog under profile comment link which has a PR4 with more relevant to my website. The link is nofollow. Look for moer.

    Earlier advise via this forum says that no.1 has no value. May be he has a point, coz i'm not getting any link juice from no.1 .However i am getting some link juice from no.2 (that's what the another seo guy says).

    I just want some opinion from the link gurus here.

    Thks!

    1) is PR0, NOT PR7
    2) is PR1, NOT PR4

    As both are nofollow --> you get no benefit from them for ranking purposes or link juice.

    That's weird? If u check via Check Page Rank! is shows PR7 & PR4 with details of the backlink via Majestic SEO.

    Not weird. That tool just checks the PR of the home page, NOT the PR of the page your link is on.

    They're NoFollow and even if they weren't they're comment spam anyway..

    Links you can give yourself are worth nothing, you're wasting your time.

    Please read through the forum stickies and learn something before continuing trying to try and generate backlinks.

    The alleged SEO guy is incompetent. DO NOT follow his advice whatsoever!

    you think your getting juice or someone told you they think your getting juice?

    I just looked through your posts and can't find where anyone said anything of the sort.

    If they are both set to no follow, no value for that and you get no PR juice. You need to make sure that the site is set to do follow other than just looking at relevant high quality sites. I find guest posting more viable in terms of acquiring good high PR backlinks. You can find relevant blogs that will allow you to post your link to their site. What I loved about guest posting is that I also get direct visits from the sites I post my articles to. If you are posting a very good article, you will also get direct visits. I hope that helps!

    Thanks all for the response. Just sorting out the links that are worth it.

    ok how about this - Dress code? - Asia Web Direct Forums
    If you rightclick (the mouse) on profile moer, select view homepage & 'Inspect element' it shows that there are NO NOFOLLOW tag (as per jpeg link). Can i assume it's dofollow?

    cbp- Tks for informing. Any tools to check PR pages(not Domain).

    Darren-How about the link above? Will i be wasting my time also. Btw, i'm trying to digest the link below. Frankly i'm having information overload LOL!

    fathom / test-ok - Point taken. Btw, will this new link have any juice?

    Traffic - The new link is dofollow. Any comment?

    MOST of the time people assume forum links are "member post's signature links" where you get another link each time you generate a post & MOST of the time these are "NOFOLLOW".

    MOST of the time these would be unnatural if DOFOLLOW.

    Sometimes (like in the case of your noted forum) the profile link is DOFOLLOW & because it is a "SINGLE LINK" there is nothing unnatural about it.

    But this isn't what you initially asked for clarification.

    Sorry, i didn't quite get you. I understand the 'MOST' & 'Sometimes' part but i do not want to assume (coz i might be wrong). So is the link worth pursuing?

    It would be better for you to pursue forums for their value of posted information or gathering information, knowledge, insights, skills, experience or wisdom.

    You will be disappointed if your only interest is ranks for your domain due to the value of a forum link. There isn't much value there.

    To understand backlink value you need find some stuff to read.
