Persona-Paper Links - Worth the Trouble or Not
Being allowed to link back to posts I have written, over the years, is one of the reasons I am happy to be a member of the Persona Paper community. I did want to find out if the type of links generated would be worth the time and trouble. upon checking I found out that links we place here are marked by the coding as NoFollow.
What does that mean?
NoFollow links don't let search engine spiders follow the link. If you link back to one of your posts, or articles, in a Persona Paper post te link juice, or cred does not pass on. Translated that means that only humans can follow the links.
Here is what a NoFollow link looks like behind the veil of your Persona Paper post
rel="nofollow"> Chinese Crested Dog </a>
So how do I use that information?
Previously that might have made spending the time to make these links to old posts and articles on other websites "not worth the trouble" but now. Ah ha, a light in the darkness.
Google now says they will count a nofollow link as an outgoing link to help distribute page rank to non spam destinations, but there is a caveat. To get the most of the link that you place it should be as close to the top of the page as possible. That means a little thinking and planning to place the link in a natural look and feeling way. Thanks AdrienneJenkins for the info I needed to get started thinking and working on this post.
