Nearly everywhere you look, people talk about the need for finding blogs and/or forums that have follow links (in other words, sites that have not turned on nofollow).
However, I’ve recently read that nofollow links are not as useless with Google as they were once thought. It appears that if your site is already indexed, a nofollow link will still count as a link with Google, albeit with somewhat less weight.
Today I got a nofollow link on an .edu site for one of my pages. Since that’s the only potential .edu link (unless I get really lucky with this brand-new site), I’ll keep an eye on it to see if I get .edu credit. I’ll post the results here as they happen.
