Are all backlinks equal as far as pagerank goes?

Is it better to have a lot of backlinks from fewer websites or less backlinks from more websites? Let's say I joined ten forums and had 100 backlinks from each forum. Would Google consider this equal to having 1,000 backlinks from 1,000 directories?

I am not an expert but my common sense dictates that less backlinks from more websites is better than more backlinks from less websites.

However the former is more difficult to get to and requires more efforts. But then does someone has more experience - has anyone done any experiment, research ?

PR is gauged on the quality of backlinks your site has. The higher the PR of sites linking to you, the better. SO if you have links to high PR directories or sites, it would generally help on your PR building.

Hi,


When considering for backlinks, there are few factors you must consider:

- The page rank of the page your link will be posted
- Is the site under search engine blacklist?
- Its always better to get backlinks from quality or highly regarded sites, as far as search engines are concern
- Not all forums or blog will give you backlinks - some use the nofollow tag
- There are more factors, but for now this will do

Regards

We have one site that gives us over 200 backlinks. They do not appreciably add to our SERPS for 2 reasons:

1. Most are nofollowed.
2. It is hypothesized that Google discounts many links from a single domain.

Do not become a "link snob", however. Take as many links as you can, from as many places as you can. Try not to do reciprocal linking.

Yes, this is right.. This is the main reason why most websites want to exchange link with those websites that have higher PR.

I think more is better, but I am not sure about you, I find it very difficult to get links from great on-topic sites, as they are mostly my competition. So while 200 links from one spot doesnt help a ton, it's better than no links from them.

Thumbs down hi

Don't link a bunch of your sites together. The IP addresses of the sites are important. Google is a domain registrar now. They know who owns what, even if you use Domains by Proxy.

Link trading is dead. Here's why - if you link out to 500 places and they all link back, this is not beneficial for you because the results get filtered out.
Buying PR8 and PR9 is semi-dead. Some of these might not count in Google.

Getting new sites ranked quickly for competitive factors is dead. 4 Trust Factor categories: unique content, who do you link to (and their neighborhoods), who links to you, and is your link found within the content?
On Google, the "similar pages" link gives you a neighborhood of pages in your linking network. Similar pages share common backlinks. Google is getting better at seeing link maps - who links to who. What is the neighborhood, what is the trust? www.touchgraph.com shows you this neighborhood.

so, produce good quality content, link out to other related/trusted sites, get good quality places to link to you, and get your links within the content of a webpage. Block level analysis - if the header is the same and navbar is the same, the things that the search engine will analyze is - what is that middle area (that differs?) You want your links in a different area - the middle area - within the content. Add lots of text to your homepage, make sure your existing pages have content, add new pages (resources, FAQ, testimonials, manuals, guides, tips, linkbait, etc.)

Ofcourse, links from MORE number of domains as they count towards more people voting for a site.

remember that quality links = PR
so even if you have plenty of backlinks it will not count as quality links. Can we say that all of your backlinks will be a quality links? Of course no...

Even if you have 10 quality links versus or against 100 quantity links...What do you think?

Relevant links gives more weight than non related backlinks...

If those forums are considered quality links, then I would go to that! you know, quality backlinks enable a website to be within the reach of the spiders and crawlers as well as enhance your rankings while having a huge amount of backlinks coming from a quantity links only facilitates frequent crawling and indexing of your website.. Now, you choose..

Take any kind of link that you can get aside from link exchanges.

Maybe he's trying to say, how will you control if someone have done natural linking into your site?
