These links won’t help your rankings on Google and other search engines much. If you want to be listed for a certain keyword (for example “green widgets”) then the links to your website should contain that keyword.

Some website will use the rel=nofollow attribute to link to your site. If a link contains that attribute, the linking webmaster tells search engines that the link should not influence the search engine rankings of your website.
Some webmasters automatically add the nofollow attribute to all links. Contact these webmaster and ask them to remove the nofollow attribute from links to your site.
