I think Matt Cutts recently said something to this effect: dmoz and yahoo backlinks are not, BY THEMSELVES, of any greater significance than other links--->though many dmoz and yahoo links MAY be of higher quality for a variety of reasons just the same as a link from any website might be sigificant if it came from a well-ranked and quality page.
Now...what about this one. Myth or truth?
Is a link from site that is ranked very high in a serps, say page one, more valuable than a link from page 10 or page 30 in a serps?
One might think so, but that page one site could easily be on page 100 itself in the next shakeup. So, is a link from that site really of any more value than a much lower ranked site. Or, is it simply true that a link is a link is a link is a link?
