I understand to many links are not good. How many links is to many? I have been applying 2-3 in each post.

1 link in 200 -300 words is OK.
The article should not seem to have just links all over the place.
1 to 2% is is considered adequate.

Hi! Thank you for the reply

1 affiliate link per 300 words (I'm assuming you're talking about affiliate links). You're going to get a wide array of answers and opinions with this question, but that is the rule I've lived by for the past 4+ years and it has served me well.

Also your articles should be long. 3,000+ word count is best. Google likes long content. Good luck.

Thank you for the reply! yes totally meant affiliate links. I understand everyone has their own technique, I just don't want to get spammed by google.

My personal opinion is None. I create a landing page for the product that pre-sells it and includes the affiliate links. Typically, one attached to the product image, one as a text link and one as a CTA button.

Then the blog posts contain only internal links to the landing page, one near the start, one right at the end and, if it fits naturally, maybe one in the middle too.

ok cool. I see what you mean phil. thank you for the reply!

I like that strategy Phil. Seems like it will keep Google happy and give a better chance to highlight your product within the lander.

You are most welcome, Jenny.

It has a lot of advantages, Jerry.

Hey Phil that sound great!I would love to see how that works visually
I have been toying with having some kind of landing page especially when I get new promos sent to me; but don't know how to air them as one off or flash sales.

I take the simplest possible approach and create either a regular page or a regular page without a menu (to reduce distractions) as my landing page.

Then I use information derived from the vendor's page to pre-sell the product by focusing on benefits rather than features.

include the affiliate links with the No Follow attribute.

Then write blog posts featuring a particular aspect of the product's benefit or pain relief that link to the landing page.

This would be a whole new approach to what I show. So do I have one landing page and keep it for deals for example what if there is a Christmas offer and once Christmas is over, I then update same landing page? Also how long should a blog be?

I just create a new landing page for each product I want to promote. Don't forget it will get indexed by its slug, so I'd be reluctant to change it. If it's a limited time offer, I'd update it by adding "Sorry, the Christmas special is over. Enter you name and email address to be advised of our next offer".

And my rule for length of a blog post is that it should be as long as it needs to be. I use keywords in paragraph headers, use an image underneath the header and wrap the text around it. Some of my posts are around 500 words but I also have a pillar post that's probably over 15,000 words.

2-3 is good as long as they pertain to the article.

ok yeah keeping it totally related to the article. Thank you Joe!

I keep it discreet, relevant and simple. Also something worth noting here is to let your posts marinate in the search engines before turning them into commercial intent.

You're dong great here.

Ok got it. For sure trying to keep it simple. Thank you!

Good stuff and most welcome :)
