    Hi guys,

    at the moment I am going through my backlinks i order to get rid of the bad ones. One question came to my mind: What do you think of sitewide links nowadays? I mean links which point from a blogroll or footer or something like this to my money site. Will it have negative effects even if metrics such as PA/DA were good? I know, PA/DA are no google metrics.

    Nevertheless, how do you operate with sitewide links in 2016?

    Not at all, until and unless the sitewide links are from business.com kind of sites in which case it is worth even a penalty :D
    To be honest, it is not worth it in 2016.

    I still use them sometimes, just be very careful with your anchor text.

    Out of 100 backlinks, 2 site wide links are OK.

    Don't bother with sitewide links. Focus on contextual links instead.

    These are outdated in link building but people still use side wide links by keep anchor text ratio low.
