Does linking to other websites help or hurt SEO?
« on: 04-07-2018, 21:18:39 »
There's a common belief that has spread through the SEO community faster than a cold in a nursery school that linking to another website will negatively impact your website's rankings and SEO. But is it true? Can linking to another website hurt your website's organic rankings? Is this always the case or are there times when linking to another website can actually improve your site's rankings?

As far as you are linking other website which has greater DA (Domain Authority) than your site and relevancy of that linking website is good, It will not hurt your website SEO. But if your spamming (Link Farming) then it may impact or hurt SEO.

Great question! As long as you link to high-quality and authoritative websites, and the link + anchor text is relevant, we have seen linking to another website actually HELPS SEO.

I see. So that was just a myth that I've heard. Thanks for clarifying.  :)

Linking to other website helps as well hurt your website.

If u are creating quality backlinks, it help to increase the ranking and traffic of the website.

However, if u are getting backlinks from the website which are not relevant and having low domain authority as compared to your website, it can affect your website.
