I’ve not looked into this too much, but it appears as if there’s a chance that you can get links directly from Google. Hat-tip to Andrew Girdwood for mentioning this on Twitter.
This page on Google is actually indexable, because their robots.txt doesn’t appear to be set up quite right. Get that page indexed and, in theory, you should be able to get links directly from Google.
I’m not sure if these links are passing juice (and in truth, if the page isn’t linked to internally then it’s debatable how much juice can be passed) but I haven’t yet found any reason for why juice would be blocked. No nofollow, it’s crawlable and able to be indexed. Bizarre, eh?
Don’t expect this to last too long, by the way 😉
