Can we use links in our article content?

Recommended Posts

Yes you can. However, it depends on the number of words you have in your article. Try to lessen them so they do not look like a spammy article and use a variety of anchor text. My advice, use 2 links in a 300-500 word article.

You definitely can but I would be very strategic by creating custom urls that will help you track results later on analytics. Make sure you create URLS that draw the attention instead of a URL that does not have anything to do with your topic and such.

Yes, we can use links in our article content as links have high impact on our search rankings. But according to Google guidelines, the links should be kept on a given page, to a reasonable number. If we are using content for internal linking, it should be around 3-4 links depending on the length of the post.

As per Google laws, for 200 words you can insert one link. An article which usually consists of 450 words can comprise 2 links in it.

 

Either you just made up these numbers or read them from some site that does not have a clue.

 

1. There is no such thing as Google Laws.

2. While one link per (pick your number) may not be a bad guideline to use there is no hard policy from Google.

3. It depends on the article and the links in question. Does having the links in any particular spot make sense? Are they linking out to a quality site or is the site sketchy? These matter much more than the number of links per hundred words.

4. Articles are not usually 450 words. Most good articles are much longer than that.

You surely can post links in you articles. But the rule is that when you post a link in that article, that article should not be thin (should be longer than 300 words).

If you have a good content length and originality wise, you can post your links without being afraid that Google will penalize you.

Maximum 2 links you will get in your article. One is in your article body and other one is in author bio.

 

​Hmm,,,  Not so much. It is obviously not the case that using more than one link in an article is going to get you penalized. Did  you make it up yourself or is someone out there pushing this idea as fact?

Yes ofcourse you can use links in your articles but keep in mind the link updated should look natural not just like updating the link without any sense. It should look natural in the eye of the Google and the users.

Of course you can use links in your article content which has the great influence for ranking in search engine.

You can post links in article depends on its quality and length of the content.I suggest to use 2 links for 500 words works better for ranking.

you can use links on the keywords used in the articles but there is a limitation that you can use 1 keyword for 400 words, 2 for 800 and so on...and it is important that it should be related to your content..it should not be promotional in nature...

Yes, you can, and you should. There are two types of links: internal and external. 
Internal links point to pages on your site. External links point to pages outside of your site.

Quick tips:

  • Link using descriptive anchor text (where are you sending people)
  • Avoid exact match anchor text (even for internal links)
  • Link to trustworthy sources, Wikipedia, New York Times

Don't have too many links.

There isn't any penalty for having 20 links in a 300-word article; But such an article would be unreadable and then- what was the point in writing it?

yes, you can if the site where you are posting article is allowing the links in the body text. most of the sites don't allow links in the body text.
