Hello BHW members :)

In the process of going through a backlinking campaign, I have a question about a couple of big DA sites.

I would like to know if the following sites offer "do-follow" backlinks or not?
  • Inc.com
  • Theguardian.com
  • Fortune.com

Because, lately I was under the impression that "Medium.com" offers do-follow backlinks, but I found late that they switch all their links to "no-follow".

PS: Do any of you know of any similar sites that offer "do-follow" links?


I'd appreciate your valuable intake on this important matter. Thank you in advance!

inc.com - d0follow

theguardian.com - looks d0follow but I'm not sure because they force me to click on their cookies banner shit, and I hate being forced to do stuff. But I didn't find any nofollow tag in the source code of the article, so I assumed that the links are d0follow

fortune.com - d0follow

I think gumroad and telegra.ph had d0follow links. And there are probably more than these, but I'm too lazy to find them. Just search for "free backlink" on the forum and you'll find them

Yes, You will get do-follow. It depends upon the author you choose and you need to inform before you would publish your article.
Definitely, you will get do-follow from inc.com but those do-follow are not constant even for a while as per my experience.

Forget DA, but these sites are genuine authority sites that you mention.

  • Inc.com
  • Theguardian.com
  • Fortune.com

Thank you so much for your in-depth answer. That's exactly what I was looking for to hear! Do they only link to homepages or can they also link to specific articles?

You make some good points. Thanks!
Can you please clarify on what you meant by not constant? Do you mean that the links are taken down or the all article permanently?

No problem.

I didn't check, but you can check for yourself by clicking on the links inside of their content and see where they take you. Or, just hover your mouse over them and you will see the actual URL at the bottom of your screen

As I have seen for inc.com sometimes or I can say most of the times your article will be deleted.

I noticed that 70%-80% ratio are root domains, but there are some cases for specific links articles. I guess that's something that has to be agreed upon with the writers. Thank you for the advice :)

Wow, most of the times? Why is that? Any idea why? So I can avoid perhaps the same faith as those other articles, especially if you are gonna pay a hefty sum for those links.

Sorry, Mate I don't know exactly why inc.com editors do that.
