The last few articles I have done I have links in my opening paragraph because I think they are appropriate.

Not affiliate links just internal and external links. Is this a good idea or would it be better to wait until further into the post? I don't recall anything about this in the training but think it may be a bad idea because people have just landed on my page and then I am directing them away, straight away.

Thoughts, please.

For me I want to encourage people to stay on my site so links would be further down

Already moved them Hugh, I thought it would be a better idea to put them further down for the reasons you stated

Yes I have viewed both of those thanks
I asked the specific question because it is not answered in those or anywhere else.

Is it a good idea to put them in opening paragraph?

I have since taken them out and put them further down in my content to stop people clicking off my site as soon as they get there.

I think that works better
