You were the one who said to self publish a link on forbes.
yeah. What if I submit an article on forbes with proper research and citated things and put my relevant link as source. and it gets viral and everyone is publishing the study that i did and citing my website. that means My self published link on forbes has more than zero value.
Possibly. But a search for the article topic would return Forbes not your site. You might have a useful link but Google will give the benefit to the authoritative and trustworthy site.
What you want is someone else to publish the article and cite you. You also need to make sure the author is not publishing across dozens of sites - this is something Google really doesn't like and was the downfall of the old article submission sites and is why guest blogging is going the same way.
yeah obviously forbes has more authority than my website.
But if you can get Forbes to cite you then the link can have great value.
This is why clever people I know pay sites like Forbes lot of money for references. If Forbes write about a great new product with pictures and citetions from other expert and a link back to your online store then then the article can generate huge amount of useful traffic.
Exactly. thats a manual link which i published even after paying to the forbes.
How much did you pay Forbes? Last time I asked about this it was in excess of $5000.
Let's say there are ways to get it done without paying that much hefty amount.
OK great. And how did this post help the ranking of your clients' site?
Forbes added nofollow attributes to external links back in 2017. So not sure how much link juice you are getting.
People buy links on Forbes for traffic not SEO.
In case you forgot .. Forbes is an example here.
