Why are links from News Articles more valuable?
News Articles operates on Australian servers from a .net.au domain name.
Search engines like Google recognise the value of backlinks as relating to the geographic network you participate in... ie. if you are promoting an Australian website, you need links from .au domain names!
News Articles is an internet resource (.net.au 2LD space) not a commercial business.

News Articles contains thousands of unique articles and press releases.
These are real contributions, not scraped, duplicated or fake spam content, which give News Articles a high page rank to link to your site from.
News Articles limits the number of outbound links to other sites.
This balances the flow of visitors and page rank to and from the site, meaning the value of your links are not sapped by someone who places multiple links in their submission. Each Press Release on News Articles is allowed just one outbound link. Articles must be longer than Press Releases and are therefore allowed two outbound links.
News Articles outbound links are allowed from the body of the page text.
This editorial style link is favoured by search engines like Google and adds greater context to the value of the link. Of course, all links are dofollow which is also best for the democratic future of the web.
News Articles outbound links allow you to choose link text and a meaningful title attribute.
This is the best way to pass the meaning of the link to your website in the eyes of both potential visitors and search engines. It is therefore the best way to rank for specific search terms. Link text like 'Visit Website' is a wasted opportunity and to ensure your advantage, is not allowed on News Articles.
News Articles are reviewed by human editors who insist on high quality submissions.
This also means that not every article submitted is approved, and those that are approved add real value to News Articles and therefore to your websites back link.
