Here are some tips for getting "followed" backlinks from eHow -- yes, I said eHow. Most of the links on eHow's site are "no follow". But there are a few places on the site where you can put well placed links and they will be "do follow". Here they are:
- In your profile, ONLY the part of the profile where you are allowed to use HTML, all links will be "do follow".
- In the forums, anchored backlinks are "do follow". All URLs are "no follow", so you're not helping yourself if you just put the URL.
Take advantage while you can, especially on the forums, because the website you put in the comments on the eHow blog were "do follow" a few weeks ago, but now are "no follow". So it changes.
