    HI Gang!!

    I have searched for the answer but can't seem to word the question without a long drawn out question......so here goes....


    I want to use a few keywords on my home page but also link to an article on another site. What is the best method of doing this?

    1. Write a short sentence using a couple keywords I want to use, then hyperlink the whole sentence to the article on another (not mine) site?
    2. Write a short sentence using a couple keywords I want to use, then use a "click here" link to the article on the other (not mine) site?
    3. your suggestion...

    I originally was thinking of using the original article on my site, but would then run into "copyscape" problems from g00gle, so decided to go this route.

    THANKS in advance :cool:

    Wylie

    Let me clarify, I'm not looking to get backlinks from other sites, just want to show an article from another site to my site...

    The link will be on my main page, but will be directed to the original site with the article..

    Just link to the site using a few lines of description and a few words for the anchor maybe.
    just keep it natural, that's all.

    it will not really help your SEO, but making it completely natural should ensure it doesn't harm your site.

    also make it open in new window probably best.

    and make sure it's a decent site that you are linking to.

    I wouldn't use your main keywords as anchor text to link to another site. That's like telling google that the other site has better information about your keywords than you do.

    Linking to relevant authority sites will help your SEO. Google definitely looks at this, and you will rank higher because of this.

    Just make it a nice natural link, and it should be fine.

    Hello,

    Linking to another site is a good thing. The balance of incoming and outgoing links should be maintained.
    You should do it in a natural way.

    I suggest you to make a quality post on your site and then link with a long tail and meaningful keyword to another site you choose.
    Linking to a quality site will definitely build your reputation also as this is web. When google crawl that sites backlinks your site will also get counted that time and it will be a add in positive reputation.

    Thanks

    You should be interlinking between blog posts. Just make sure yur posts contain enough content. You can also use certain plugins to accomplish this. Just make sure that you are aware of duplicate content issues.

    Hi, you DP is really rocking :super:. In my opinion, keywords that are related to article could be a better option. However, you should only advertise these links on your site if they are in a business relationship with you.
