    Writing articles for authority sites , nofolllow, no anchor, worth it?


    Is it worth it to write a quality unique long article to put on a high authority site?

    Link parameters:

    - No follow
    - No anchor text

    Is this a waste of time?

    I highly doubt hi authority sites will even offer you a follow link, but if you find one make the links anchor text something like, click here, read more type of anchor for nofollow your looking for traffic and you can use what ever you want to attract traffic.

    If the site is highly relevant and has a good amount of relevant traffic, I say do it. It may not help your rankings much, but creates awareness and can help positing you as an authority in your own field if your content is good enough.

    What about anchor text? Not link juice.

    Can google see this at all and give you a relevancy score boots, but no link juice?

    Or does google completely not see nofollow text, like it didn't even exist?

    Of course, you can write articles for authority sites but the content is relevant to the category or services articular site having or providing to its users. It will aware more people to know about your service or brand and increase your website traffic. No matter the link is nofollow or dofollow it worth 100 times better than the 100 spammy links on spammy websites. IF the website doesn't allow you to post links in the content part then they will allow you to link back in your bio.

    If you are placing these links on sites that attract a similar customer base as yours and you place a compelling anchor test with it, you'll be able to drive traffic to your website. Which is precisely the goal of SEO. However it wont transfer any link juice. But ideally it is good to have a good mix of follow and no follow links for your website.

    If it is highly authoritative then-No follow & No anchor text doesn't matter. The authority of that site can give you honest traffic and also increase your search visibility.

    While no-follow links won't have an immediate impact on your link-building, it can contribute long-term to your back-link strategy. High authority sites will bring you the right kind of traffic which can only be a positive thing for your site's reputation. As your reputation from association with high authority sites improves you could be more likely to receive back-links with actual juice as back-linkers view you as more authoritative.
