Do-follow link Vs No-follow link

Technically, all the links that you share in a blog and attach anchor text to are Do-follow links, unless modified to be no-follow links. All do-follow links act as votes of confidence telling the search engine of the quality of the article or blog.

No-follow links have a piece of code that restricts this action, and they do not count as votes for better SEO rankings. When it comes to code, the only attribute that differentiates do-follow and no-follow links is the 'rel' attribute, which does not exist with regular/do-follow links while it refers to a keyword 'nofollow' for the no-follow links.

Why is Guest Posting better than PR?

Assuming that Guest Posting is just an extension of PR, owing to their strategic similarities is a common misconception. Contrastingly, Guest posting is very different, and a lot more convenient than PR, with a lot more benefits. Here are few reasons why Guest Posting should be your go to route for reputation marketing, and not the usual PR.

Why is Guest posting better
Guest Posting Vs Public Relations
  • Interacting with industry professionals, prospective customers, and an audience interested in your niche is what guest posting is all about, and that is what you need for brand recognition. PR isn't of much help for getting the word out.
  • PR is more inclined to journalists, and places most of the control in the hands of journalism in contrast to guest posting, where you own the quill, and have the ability to methodically post interactive content.
  • With PR, there is no gist of competition and the campaign is mostly product/company centric. While it isn't wrong, the objective of building a trusted brand that stands tall among its peers is not something PR is good at.
  • PR backlinks redirect viewers directly to the homepage of the concerned brand or company, exponentially depreciating its value. This deceases click through rates while increasing bounce rates. A better approach would be to add context to the content that you create, which is something you would often find in guest posts.
  • PR doesn't display the part where your product excels, rather it tells a story. As much as the reader is interested in a good story, this doesn't add value or credibility to the product. On the other hand, Guest Posting does exactly that, and even gets you an audience that is interested to read about your product.

PR and Guest Posting - Same yet Different

PR and Guest Posting, while sometimes thought of as extensions of the same thing, are surprisingly quite different. Moreover, even the press releases, an integral part of PR, rolls out stories way different than what the readers actually need. But as much as they are different, in a way, good PR and Guest Posting complement one another, and when used efficiently, they can be quite an effective duo. However, the bottom line is, regular PR does not add the technical value to your product as much as a good guest post would, and neither it can encompass all the benefits that guest posting has to offer. And hence, decisively speaking, PR is not as effective and influential as a robust guest post, and does not possess the capabilities that a good guest post with do-follow links does.
