    consider this scenario - lets say you write a post for an external website with a link in the body. does adding a link from the same domain in your author bio (for the same article) potentially devalue the first link?

    asking bc over the years it seems that google has devalued bio links, so im wondering that an otherwise clean in-body link could be pulled down with a bio link.

    I think google chooses which link is more important and counts only one. I recall there was an interview of how google treats these links, see



    Hope this helps.
