However, not all backlinks from Google plus helps your SERP, the only backlink that does are dofollow backlinks and about 90% of links from Google + are not dofollow but nofollow.

Well, there has been a lot of debate about the relevance of dofollow or Nofollow backlinks in helping a particular blog or website to rank high; this is my personal opinion “ both of them count and matter a lot, however, getting about 65% dofollow and 35% nofollow ratio is the best SEO practices”

    Great post James.
    I have known about this from a long time but I don’t really think that it gives a dofollow backlink. I can’t see any google+ backlink in any of the backlink checker!
    But I do share my posts on Google+ and have a link in the profile page as well.
    Thanks for the post man!

      Hi Santosh,

      Good question; if you read the post very well, there are two ways to get the dofollow links:
      1. First is through the profile, and to get this, you have to verify your site
      2. The second method does not require any verification, just make sure you share your post content using the ‘ what’s new section’ and then you click on the link button.

      I hope this answers your question!!

    Thank you man, I hope it will be regarded as a quality link though. Someone once said that google don’t take profile links very seriously.

  6. Mikel DeFrancesco says

    I just did exactly this… but the link that was created in the Story -> Introduction tab was NoFollow? Has this very recently changed or was something not done correctly?

  8. Small Business Marketing Consultant says

    Thank you for that tutorial on Google + DO follow links – I’m currently working on a few new sites and want a solid social media footprint including a Google + inbound, you’ve clarified that point for me. I’ve seen somewhere that it’s best to have the link in the STORY section of your profile as opposed to the LINKS section as you muted above though…any further point on this matter?

    According to firefox NoDoFollow Extension backlinks created using share what’s new method and link on about section are no-follow not do-follow.I think you should update this turtorial because it is for no-follow backlink not for do-follow.
