Good afternoon, hope everyone is having a good day.

My website is about pet products but if I want to say add a link somewhere about "Turbo Tax"(example only), or "dental implants", that are really not related to my niche but that I think my audience may be interested in, can I do this, or do I have to completely stick to everything pertaining to my niche?

You are probably seeing some large sites do this. But as a consumer it is very irritating because website visitors come for a specific reason and they don't like seeing ads much less ads that don't relate to the niche.

If your niche site is designed to help people with information and solve problems, your site visitors will be very grateful.

Yes, you can. I encourage you to do that.

I think it helps to add authority to one's website.

Wishing you much success here at WA!

How do unrelated ads add authority to a niche specific site?

Just wondering!

I guess if my site was centered around pet products, then there would be no reason to promote Wealthy Affiliate with either text links or banner links. I think that is what you are saying.

That said, I have a few hundred followers and I make a point to revisit them often to check on their niche websites, A very large percentage of them are promoting Wealthy Affiliate, which has little or nothing to do with their niches.

So, in that sense, I guess placing unrelated ads have nothing to do with authority. I shouldn't have used that word.

Now, what are your thoughts on so many WA members placing WA text and banner links on websites that may have to do with teaching children, nursing careers, etc.? Why would they do this?

How does a Wealthy Affiliate Banner on a niche site related to hydroponics make sense?

Just wondering!

I'm not an expert at this but I would let google adsense do the work for you.

I am definitely going to put up links that pertain to my direct niche but I thought I could add a few random things in there somewhere.
Thanks for the great answers I'll stick to my current niche as advised.

You CAN do this, but why would you want to? The people are there to get answers about your niche. Why not put up links that are in line with your niche? Our main reason to write a blog is to help people interested in your niche - not miscellaneous unrelated programs.

Just my thoughts.

Respecting your opinion, if I have a camping website, there is no reason to promote Wealthy Affiliate. Is that what you are saying?

I do always put in a WA banner but that’s it. Not a bunch of unrelated ads, though.
