In summary of my last post, I showed how you can use Google webmaster tool to optimize your articles to rank on Google first page using your queries (keywords) and how to use blog commenting to boost your keyword to rank first page.
In this tutorial I will be discussing broadly about link juice by opening a secrete most bloggers in Nigeria use to get high quality backlinks from Number one Nigeria forum that has over millions of members.

What is link juice?
In my own terms, I understand link juice as an SEO term that refers to the authority passed to a site through links from external or internal sources. There are so many ways you earn authority links from the web which will be discussed below using Nairaland as a scape goat LOL. You can earn this links from guest posting, forums and social media.
In summary, links that passes from one site to other is the link juice, and this link juice differs in its authority depending on the sites linking to you.
What is Dofollow Backlink?
I know you would have been seeing some text by people saying I need Dofollow links on comments, social media or forums but you don’t know what dofollow links is all about. Dofollow links allow all search engines like Google, Bing and yandex to follow them and reach our website by giving us a backlink and a link juice.
Example of Dofollow Link
Note this, by default in blogs, all the hyperlinks are Dofollow. So, you don’t need to do anything to make a link do-follow. But for forum like Nairaland it’s also Dofollow but to make it effective and boost your ranking on a keyword you will make use of an anchor text.
Anchor texts are text that has a link just like hyperlink so that when search engine bots crawl external source who are linking back to your site they will rank you with that text that has that link,
Pro tip: Don’t use one keyword in your anchor text but use different keyword so that you won’t rank for a single keyword but it all depends on how competitive the keyword may be.
What is Nofollow Backlink?
Nofollow links attributes that do not allow search engine bots to follow the link. That means if the website owner is linking back to you with Nofollow attributes, it does not pass any authority or you can say it does not pass any “link juice”. So, there is no hope for ranking for that particular keyword.
Example of Nofollow
<a href=”http://www.site.com/” rel=”nofollow”>site</a>
I believe you have gotten 100% understanding about link juice, Dofollow and Nofollow so that you can know what to do if you want to start building your links.
Note: make sure you get more Dofollow than Nofollow through commenting, guest post and forums.
I know you will be thinking how can I know if a website gives Dofollow or Nofollow, don’t worry I will show you how below.
I don’t want you to this mistake I did when I started my link building campaign though, I never knew about Dofollow links and Nofollow but knew link juice.
I was thinking ones someone links back to my blog and people click, it will start affecting my site for ranking. But never knew you can rank even if people don’t click it because when Google crawls those site that has your link, it will give you are link juice only if it is Dofollow but for Nofollow hell no.
When learning SEO you have to be conscious of links you want to get. Here is how below you can know if a site gives dofollow links and Nofollow links,
When you visit a site, open a page where articles are written look for anchor text that has a link pointing out to another website and right click your mouse and click view page source.
It will take you to the next page to see the html of the page then press control F and text in that anchor text that as a link pointing out to another source to locate if it is Nofollow or Dofollow.
How to get quality links from Nigeria number one forum
Here is a pro tip to help you my readers. When getting backlink focus on getting backlink to your homepage, so that your home page will be passing that link juice to other pages of your site to get Domain authority.
Let’s get started
If you have not signup to become a member on Nairaland you better do so now. But if you are a member already you can continue with me.
Like I said earlier on my Facebook timeline not every page on Nairaland are equal but do you know the page that can boost your ranking?
Hey guys it’s a secret keep it to your self don’t tell anyone.
To get high quality backlink from Nairaland forum is from NAIRALAND HOMEPAGE because over thousands of blogs are linking back to the home page as a source of information especially news, entertainment, music, parenting niche.
Let’s say 70% are linking back to the homepage with Dofollow and 30% linking back to it with Nofollow, because of the high percentage of Dofollow, Nairaland is an authority site because of its links Nigerian bloggers are giving back to the homepage. Here is how they are giving back to it
Like I said earlier Nairaland is a place where you can get latest news happening in the country or worldwide and other info. Popular blogs like lindaikeji, naijaloded, Bella naija, yabaleft online, gossip mill and other blogs get information from their and link back to Nairaland forum telling their readers this update came from this source= Nairaland.
And also over 100 of Nigeria news/entertainment blogs, tutorial blogs, parenting blogs, other forums are linking back to this Nigeria forum with high % of Dofollow and little percentage of Nofollow.

Take advantage of Nairaland front page
It’s simple you don’t need too much time or strength to this. All you need to do is to comment wisely then link back to your blog with the use of any choice of keyword as an anchor text.
But this technique will favor news/entertainment, free browsing and gossip niche because their niche are always on front page you can check it yourself if you doubt me. i have tried this with my entertainment blog.
but for niche like mine don’t do this technique because posting links that does not relate to what that page is talking about will result to spamming. and their is a penalty for that.
When you see any post on front page that you have interest on please go through it before commenting because if you don’t, and comment wrongly Google will know you are spamming and it will result to punishment.
And another thing is this; don’t forget to use your keyword as an anchor text because most bloggers just paste their link ordinary. If you are doing so I will let you know that, by posting link ordinary without anchor text will not help.
The reason why I said so is this: when search engine bots crawl the front page because of the backlinks the front page get, it won’t understand what those ordinary links the front page is linking to because you have no anchor text. But definitely you will get traffic back to your blog from people.
