How to add links to your Wealthy Affiliate website profile

Last Update: May 12, 2018

What is a link? A link can be text, picture, button or any other clickable part of a web page that will lead you to another page on the same site or another entirely new site.

Search engines such as Google measures a website's authority by analyzing the links linking to the site from other websites.

The resulting “link authority” is a compicated calculation of the number and quality of links to a website.

A links value is based on several factors including but not limited to:

  • Age of linking domain
  • Content quality of linking and linked domain
  • Do both sites talk about the same subject (relevant niches)
  • Does linking site have a bunch of other outgoing links? (This looks Spammy)
  • Is the link a contextual link? Meaning is it part of a paragraph? For instance here is one link to my Wealthy Affiliate Profile - Wealthy Affiliate Success Stories by having text around the link it is considered a contextual link. A link like https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/chrisljones is not contextual.
