My business was mentioned in a major publication but I did not get a backlink, will Google still count this towards my ranking?

Thanks,

Guy

    UUHH ouch. Why didnt you get a backlink? If I were you I would just ask the publisher to include a link to your site.... Thatll give you some nice traffic from there too

    I doubt google would count this toward your ranking without any link pointing to your domain.

    I did not win the lottery for $100 000 000, but someone said I did.

    Can I still collect $100 000 000?

    Even though this is a nonsense question ripe with nonsense answers....there is another aspect here.

    If a company is mentioned in a way that gets a lot of people searching for the company....

    Then that fact alone will contribute to the company's website being favored by google.

    Google is no fool. This is why companies advertise....and new companies can skyrocket quickly.

    It would be a citation If they mentioned the business details, name, address and phone number (NAP).

    At the very least mentioning the domain URL.

    Just mentioning your website on publication does not give backlinks. There are lot of other things you need to do to build backlinks.

    I believe its considered rude to ask for a backlink from journos. You just hope for the best. At least if the piece gets wide readership you'll get a lot of people searching for you.
