Are Pinterest backlinks still valuable, even if they are no follow? Should we be trying to get backlinks from Pinterest?

    Google still takes nofollow links into account. They look for a good variety and having some nofollow links helps towards this.

    NoFollow only means it doesn't pass page rank. you can still rank your sites with noFollow links..... Completely different things. One of the biggest misconceptions in all of SEO.

    If you can get a link from an authority domain that gets lots of traffic YOU WANT THAT LINK.

    Easy as that really.

    This is the real world. A backlink is virtual. So is Google in many ways. So let's think about backlinks in real terms. If Google and backlink are virtual, what are not? Your visitors.

    Because they're the ones with the cash.

    As Nikita says,
    If you can get a link from an authority domain that gets lots of traffic YOU WANT THAT LINK.
    A backlink is worth nothing unless it is making you money.

    Think of backlinks in these terms and your backlinking profile becomes practically bombproof. Google is interested in relevance - everything they do focuses on relevance, usefulness*. Form your strategy around this and you should find yourself looking at backlinks in a different way.

    That is to say, targeted, specific, high-quality visitors (= traffic).

    Now there is something we're all missing here. The content of your backlink. You have to write or post something that interests your potential visitors. Google only follows a backlink if it has been followed. If people don't use it, it is a poor quality backlink.

    More importantly and putting the horse before the cart this time, it is of little use to you in practical terms. So make sure that even on a poorly ranked site, you make that link interesting to those people who find you interesting. Because doing that will put a bomb under your traffic stats.

    *Sometimes this does get clouded when the higher-ups want a bit more cash in their pockets. They are just another of the algorithm designer's problems.

    If you create a business page and put your URL in the description you can verify your webste and get a clickable link. I believe that link is a dofollow.

    What's good about Pinterest is that you can get a lot of traffic to your site and that is one of the signals that Google takes into account when ranking sites.
