1. They rank really well on Google (1st to 3rd place) for relatively competitive searches, with monthly search volumes between 2000 and 10000.
2. They have hundreds of backlinks pointing at them, but about 99% of them are nofollow links from short, meaningless comments on small blogs.
So, I’m starting to think that nofollow links do have some value, especially if they come in large numbers. If this proves to be true, I’m considering going to those exact small blogs and commenting there myself.
What do you think?
