Because we are blogging in a post-panda world, I'm offering up this post to make you realize what are outbound links and why it's important to have outbound links for SEO...

Yoast SEO plugin really encourages for inserting outbound links while writing a post. Yoast users may know it I guess as it shows an orange circle if we miss to insert any outbound links

What Are Outbound Links ?

Outbound links are a type of links that point out to some other websites or blogs from your site.

Why Is It Important ?

Outbound links give the search engine a clear concept about your niche because of relevant links. It helps to increase the trust and quality of your site, therefore, multiplying your blog SEO and also offers the best way to be in touch or build a relationship with other bloggers as well.

Few Suggestions For Best Outbound Links

  • Link to resources like Wiki but avoid too many outbound links from the same post.
  • Link to relevant blogs which actually valuable and cover the topic very well.
  • Link to articles having excellent page authority or domain authority.
  • It's good if you are linking to articles which got maximum social media shares.

**At the same time inserting your outbound link for your blog never means that you must link to suspicious sites or banned site. If does it will effect you negatively and search engines like Google may devalue your links which affect your blog as well**.

Just have to be careful having too many Outbounds links, first, you want your visitors to stay on the site longer. Secondly, visitors might not return back to your site. Regards Sadie.

Appreciate the information. I read somewhere that one shouldn't use too many outbound links in one article, because some people will click on the link and not come back. What are your thoughts on this?

Absolutely right. We are not supposed do too many outbound links since it can decrease readability and take away our visitors as well. So it's better to keep few high quality Outbound links and not too many.

Does linking to WA blogs count as linking to an authority site?
Reply
ArjunUllaz Premium
when I checked domain authority of WA in moonsy.com it scores 56 out of 100. So overall linking to WA will be good I guess but I don't know exactly will it be countable for WA blogs.

Hi Loes - WA itself is an authority site but the blogs is a different thing
