Title: How many links we can use in our content?
Post by: crescendo on 04-08-2014, 02:42:37
Can we use links in our content? How many links should we use in our content? If we use too many links in our web pages then can it be a problem in SEO results?

You can use upto 3 links in a content, But make sure that link must be related to the content and the content must be properly optimized and user oriented.

Google is paying more attention towards brand name, after the Google Penguin Update anchor texts loosing its magic in SEO, but it's not dead. Do not over optimize anchor text, 1-2 links is sufficient.

Its also depends on the length of content, if your content length is above 1000 or 1500 words you can use upto 4% links.

You may use up to 3 hyper links in an article material or a Blog, But create sure that we-blink must be relevant to the material and the material must be effectively enhanced and customer focused.

Maximum of 3 links per page, though one link is enough and reasonable. Well, as a user, I often dislike link-heavy pages I prefer to see much more of the information and content value. However, there are times huge links can lead to new discovery.

I see many saying 3 links per article. if google had to do everything what it is saying, it probably would stop saying.
have you ever seen wikipedia give hundreds of links within its content? yet it is considered worth by google. but it chikmanglore.org.cn which is a page rank 0 or below(no rank) gives 3 links in its content on a deep down page, google I think would either not give it a consideration or if it does, it will count 1 or 2 or will consider negetively.

The domain authority of the page makes a lot of difference. I suggest if you make a page do not always stick to 3 , it could be a little more it could be less or no backlink at all on the page. oh yes, outbound links is a different story at all.

Google used to have that 100-links-per-page in their Webmaster guidelines. They've dropped that since 2013, or earlier I think. Here's a post - http://searchengineland.com/googles-matt-cutts-we-dropped-the-100-links-per-page-guideline-but-we-may-take-action-if-it-is-too-spammy-178197 (http://searchengineland.com/googles-matt-cutts-we-dropped-the-100-links-per-page-guideline-but-we-may-take-action-if-it-is-too-spammy-178197). Also, here's a post about Matt Cutts being called a hypocrite because a blog post where he gave an interview is filled with links - http://www.seroundtable.com/google-cutts-links-hypocrisy-18365.html (http://www.seroundtable.com/google-cutts-links-hypocrisy-18365.html). And here's the controversial post with a lot of links http://matt.cutts.usesthis.com/ (http://matt.cutts.usesthis.com/).

Conclusion: You can add more than 2-3 links inside your content, as long as they are not spammy and/or irrelevant.

I will suggest you to use only 1 link minimum and max 2 link if it is necessary. Since creating many links in one content will be consider spamming also. so always be alert when using link in content.

You would be safe if you use 1 or 2 links per 500 words in a web-page and do not use optimized anchor text.

I think 3 external link, and <100 internal link. I think It's not Spam.

You can use upto 3-4% of links according to your content in page. Don't over optimize your keywords with so many links. Google will treat this as a spam.

You can use 3 links to your 1000 words content. But do not try to build the rank on particular keywords use phrases & it should be meaningful too. You can use one link as an outbound link like Wikipedia or any info. site.

Creation of two links in contents of 500 words is considered good practice. More links from one article is not considered good by search engines

1-2 should be most preferable number of links in your content. Until you have a website having very high PR and your posting your content with the quality level that of like Wikipedia, you should not use more than 1 link in any content.

You can use one or two links in your content. it is the best because more links is looks like black hat and also not acceptable.

Here is the best tip you will ever hear.

Add one of your keywords, your URL, a URL to an authority site like wikiepedia, a youtube video and your unique content. That is something that really works.

Its is depends on your content words,
if you are adding links in 500 words then there you could add 2 links, use this natural formula.

It solely depends on the amount of your content. If the article is of 500 words, 3 links will be good. If the article is of 1200-1500 words, then you can give 5-6 links. Stuffing links can result in spam content.

I think it depends. Many of us like shopping online like ebay and amazon. When we enter these websites, there are full of links. However, when we use Google to find something we want, their websites always have higher ranks. So anyone can explain this to me. I am SEO junior, this is just my own opinion but I really hope someone can explain this to me, thanks in advance.

Ideally 1 for a money site. But you can still put up a few other links along with it.

4-5 Links are proper. Make sure your navigation structure remains correct for your links. Only give links to those which are correlated or which will give detail information about the given linking term. Google will treat more number of links as a spam one. So never try for inserting many links. Just give less links as much as you can but quality ones.
