    I wrote an article for someone with the link "divorce lawyer" and Lifehack editors removed my link and while still publishing my article so obv I had to refund my client. So i ended up writing the article for free.

    It's quite weird as I see tons of articles on Life hack with anchor texts like "divorce lawyer", "lawyers" etc linked to law firms for both homepages and interior pages.

    Has this happened to anyone else? Just bad luck??

    Sometimes you hit, sometimes you miss.

    How much does it cost if we would like you to write an article with ******** anchor text links on Lifehack or CNN and so on?

    i wonder if they removed it because of the anchor text or because it was a law office? or both?

    How come I see other people getting away with it and linking to lawyers etc?

    Home Page:
    This happens when you link with a salesy anchor text irrelevant to the article. If its relevant, the editors may allow.

    Also, linking to homepage is not 100% clicking on lifehack. So the authors have always preferred to link them to the informative inner blog pages.

    Nope. Linked to a site very relevant to the story. Also, was an interior page.

    It was just too too much exact match and not natural enough looking; that was the reason why.

    Could you send me an example of your post to LifeHack and so on. Our business is about order fulfillment service(including warehousing, picking packing and shipping)

    Also, Could we pay after the post is completed? Because you said that Lifehack editors removed your link. Please send us you email if available

    Thanks
