    Which is a stronger backlink strategy?

    I have the option to put money site link to a niche relevant site on the homepage.

    Or

    Write a blog post and put my link on that blog post to the niche relevant site.


    Which is a stronger method?

    Hopefully makes sense.

    i vote for blog post with exact match kw in title, desc, h1 and url structure and overall contextuality (which you cant get from homepage :))

    teoretically homepage link should kick stronger but in my case web20s posts always rank better if above requirements are filled. (better than if i put same article on homepage)

    you can also make your homepage 100% exact match but i dont recommend it :)



    theres also something i didnt test but it could work like that, link juice flow:

    - it goes from any sources to contextual homepage
    > then it follows internal link on exact match kw to contextual post and becomes even more contextual

    makes sense :)

    Usually homepage is stronger than an inner page, so first option is best.

    However it would depend on the metrics of the sites in question too.

    Yeh OP, make everything exact match, then get rekt with the next update or when you will be stuck at 2nd page.

    Homepage links are stronger. However, they can be a massive footprint if you overdo it. I personally prefer to play it safe and go with internal links optimised for your keywords with brand anchors preferably.

    not everything exact match :) but this could be used in case of strongest links, just need to take care of other more natural links and anchors

    If the internal link building is perfectly done means there won't be much different between home page link and inner page link. Getting a lot of home page link will not be a Good idea though.

    Yeh, that's the case with kids ordering 30 PBN posts in marketplace, all using exact match anchor, because "these are the strong links".

    Homepage link has better impact than the blog post link. Since the link juice will pass through out the entire site.

    You can try putting your affiliate post on your homepage. I think homepage link is stronger than post link.
