Thanks zilog357, Yeah, unfortunately my experience seems like it just isn't working correctly. I did exactly as described above using Elementor. I tried to add links via their "Report" that lists all the posts on your site. I also went into the individual post and tried to do it via their recommended link building section. None of it worked even though when I submitted the link test, it popped up a visualization saying "Success" or something like that. When I'd refresh the post, the link wasn't live. Interesting enough, I deactivated Elementor and then used it. It worked and the links were live. However, as soon as I reactivated Elementor - the links were gone. So frustrating because it worked out great ....just not with Elementor.
