Some major news sites, like Business Insider, AsiaOne, and Newsmax, typically use do-follow backlinks. On the other hand, many news outlets, such as Benzinga and Street Insider, often use no-follow backlinks.

For the best SEO results, we suggest the Authority Package & Ultimate Package because they usually include some do-follow links.

Many clients are initially only interested in dofollow links. But, after seeing how nofollow links still improve their search rankings, they are often happy to keep ordering each month. Most clients notice an improvement within the first month of getting their report.

Below you can read how our publications tend to rank well on Google's search results and the benefits of no-follow backlinks.

Ranking on the first page of Google

One of the benefits of publishing on such high-authority websites is that they tend to rank quite highly on Google for low-competition keywords. The publications can then act as landing pages to your website to drive pre-qualified traffic from Google to your website.

So even if your website takes a long time to move up Google's rankings, your publications may be able to rank for the same keywords even faster while at the same time building trust and social proof for your brand.

Experts explain the benefits of nofollow backlinks

Here are article snippets from the leading SEO experts on what they have to say about nofollow backlinks:

In fact, building nofollow links can be a great way to drive traffic, boost SEO, leverage social signals and influencer marketing, and create a domino-effect link-building strategy.”

Experiments and industry studies have found that nofollow links can lead to higher rankings in Google. Don’t forget: The right nofollow link can bring you LOTS of targeted traffic.

"Many people believe that link building only matters if you get a follow link. While quality follow links can be great for SEO, there are still clear benefits to getting nofollow links."
