How many affiliate links can each blog have. Is there a maximum number?

Each time you add a link, you've given someone the chance to make a purchase. I usually put in 3-5 links per post, provided they make sense. If you are only reviewing a single product, I'd probably only add it twice. I have had a different experience and haven't had any issues placing links at the end of the first paragraph or in the second paragraph. But I've only been doing this for 20 years, so what could I possibly know?

Hi Joseph,

When Triblu speaks I listen.

I also found this out:

How many links should you be building?

The more links you have pointing to your website the better, right? There is a big misconception that more is better.

No matter how many links your competitors have, you shouldn’t focus on quantity. You should focus on quality. A link from a site like CNN, assuming it is coming from a relevant section and article, will carry much more weight than 10 links from mom and pop sites.

Best wishes,
Michael

Hi Michael,
Thank you for hitting the nail on the head. Stay blessed always.

Hey Joseph,

Kyle states in his training that we should only ever sprinkle affiliate links and NOT have them on EVERY page and/or post.

The rules I have been following is to NEVER place an affiliate link above the fold: ...and, one of my former websites, I made the mistake of including an affiliate link in the sidebar that appeared ABOVE the fold and that site appeared in my Google Analytics with a punishment (for a lack of a better word) due to that ad... which, needless to say, I move to appear below the fold... and all was then forgiven.

The other rule I learned years ago was not to use more than 3 affiliate links in a 1000 word post/page... and to ALWAYS identify my affiliate links, even if only to state that in brackets either before or after the link.

Now I make sure to have a LOT more posts and pages with helpful info and only a few posts with affiliate links.

What you can do to reduce your need of affiliate links is create landing pages with your affiliate links, and then point your posts to those landing pages. VOILA, you will be complying to Google's preferences.

Hope you find this helpful.

Hi Joseph, you seem to have your answers already.

Stay safe, stay well

Most people focus on getting good google search results. It's helpful to look at Google's statement about affiliate links. https://bit.ly/2Uu5R4k

This is really helpful George. Thank you.
