I want link to another site with an email like admin@example.com. So the link will have the href=mailto:admin@example.com.

Does that count as a backlink to example.com and transfer any Google PageRank?

NO.

The mailto: links are considered as normal links and are never considered as backlinks and do not transfer any Google PageRank.

  • I think this answer is correct, however it would be a better answer if you said how you know this. Have you done experiments, or can you link to sources? – Stephen Ostermiller Nov 24 '19 at 16:56
  • I have experimented myself and have never found it to be a factor to affect the PageRank. This experiment was carried out few months prior to this answer but I do not have any sources to validate this or provide you accurate information right now. Sorry about that. – idk Nov 26 '19 at 13:36

NO.

It is type of email link, it is not direct site link subtype (back link).

    This answer doesn't say anything new compared to other answers. – Stephen Ostermiller Nov 25 '19 at 14:24
  • Because there is nothing new in the field of linking perhaps. – Alexandra RD Nov 26 '19 at 13:45
