Proof that MSN counts Nofollowed links!  Reply with quote  

If you do a search on uk.msn.com for David Eaves, you will see that my site ranks in 3rd or 4th place, there is not a single mention of the pharse in the content and I haven't exactly been targeting it with my link building efforts, the only place I have got links from using David Eaves in the anchor text is blog comments, I occasionaly comment on blogs like the one at SERoundTable by Barry Schwarts as well as a couple of others and as you all know blog comment links are nofollowed, beacuse of these nofollowed links I rank on MSN for David Eaves. I am in last place on Google (the last site that shows up for the search) and knowhere on Yahoo with my homepage, my contact us page does show up on Yahoo because I mention it in the description tag. My conclusion is that they do nothing on Google, they do nothing on Yahoo (even though they show up on siteexplorer) and they work on MSN.

That's interesting, maybe if there are no other webpages relevant to a search using nofollow links as a factor to rank pages isn't a bad thing.

A name is not exactly a competitive keyword... some names have more content than others depending if there are many famous people with that name making it more competitive. In your case, there isn't so of course you will appear if there is anything remotely about david eaves on the sites in the copy, links or title tags...

It's really interesting that Bing count rel="no follow" links.

A Blast from the Past  Reply with quote  

This is a blast from the past. I wonder if a similar experiment would work today.
