Sorry, if the question has already been ask, but I was wondering how one can get backlinks, which can be counted and help your ranking?

I mean, it looks like today, everybody is adding the "nofollow" parameter to outgoing links. Certainly worrying of penalty if linking to bad sites.

My site has been linked several times from articles at the NY Times site, which gives a boost of traffic for some days, but their link is nofollow, and so is not counted by Google, and not showing at the GWT. I think this is too bad, because it shows my site has some good value, but I don't get any credit (from a ranking point of view).

Wikipedia, is also using my site as several sources, but it doesn't count either.

All links from Twitter/Facebook are not counting either :(

Just because it's a nofollow doesn't mean it's not counted.

Here's a great thread we had recently that's worth reading.
