    I think SENuke, by default, inserts 3 links into articles it submits. Is this the best practice? These guys have a pretty impressive reputation.

    I have two sites that are closely related, so I usually drop a link from each of the two sites.
    Is that a good policy? What are the best practices?

    Is there a difference between articles, and blogs, and wikis when it comes to the number of links that are believed to be safe to drop?

    Thanks for considering this question.

    Fair disclaimer: I do not use Senuke. But a similar (but more powerful tool).

    Now what I do is create tiered links. Each page I create points to only 1 other link and nothing else. No wikipedia, no multiple links, no crap like that. The reason? Because I like to have no footprint at all.

    If you have two sites in the same niche, I would refrain from putting 2 links on a page going to both sites for related keywords. Some may argue that it wouldn't matter, but staying safe is always better.

    Building links using Article Submission generally allows you to put two links in the resource box at the end of the article (like a bio or recap). 2 links per article is pretty standard.

    Wiki's - depending on the platform, you can put as many links as you want. However, what Securelinkbuilding said, you don't want to dilute your link-juice by putting in too many links. Using 3 links is good. The links here are usually isolated from the actual body text of the article you're publishing.

    Web2.0's and Blogs - You can place as many links here as you want (physically) but you want to refrain from that as well. 2-3 links should suffice. The reason why Blogs and Web2.0 properties are great is that you can place your links in-context; meaning that they will be surrounded by relevant text as opposed to Wiki's, where your anchor text is separated from the article.

    Also, remember to diversify your anchor text. You don't want to use the same keyword (your target keyword) more than 50% of the time. 30-40% of time will put you on the safe side.
    Try using related keywords, typos, and generic keywords like "Click Here", "Website", or even your URL as anchor text.

    If you mix things up and make things look natural, you should be okay.

    1 link is better...but in Web2.0 I use 2 links (min 500 words original content) and I believe it's fine :) Of course, sometime I use only 1 to avoid footprints..
