Hi Friends,
Recently I saw an interesting thing and thought that I should share that over here.
An online .doc file is crawlable by G,every one know that.But the most interesting thing I found that if there are few links to other sites at that .doc file,then G will consider those links as the Back Links of those sites.

Friends,would like to make any comments on this?

new_seo - To clarify, are you saying that hyperlinks contained in the text of the .doc file are counted as backlinks to the pages they're addressing?

That's an interesting observation... something I hadn't thought about. It suggests, once again, that you should be careful about what you put online.

It has been that way for a long time, .pdf's too. As to their value I have no idea.

I feel G is giving value to the links at .doc files.

A link is a link, in my opinion. Makes sense to count it as one.

You are right,but G is not granted all the links.Isn't it?

Do you mean that Google doesn't show all the links in their link: operator results? That's definitely true -- but they do count many links that they don't show.

That's true,but I am trying to say that google is not giving value to all kind of links.Like,I saw in a blog,that google is not giving value to links at facebook profile.

Yes, that's also true. Google can and does decide not to allow certain links to pass on PR and backlink influence.

dumping the link in a pdf and letting g find it used to be one of the fastest ways you get get a page indexed.

Yes,that's true and I was aware of that.But don't have any idea about .doc files.I feel .doc file will work in same way.
