for the two articles I just published. One is on treadmills and the other is on treadmill desks. Anything health related is okay, i.e., mind, body and soul.

Why not link out first, and then let the Authors know? They just might link back to you.  Smile

Cheffe,  me thinks she wants to save time in hunting down articles ;-)

 

Here you go Brenda, two of mine:

Thanks for considering ;-) SY

I know that Katie does a lot of writing on health.  Have you seen her new one on How To Know If I'm Fat ?  It's very good.

Oh. Perhaps I misunderstood your request, Brenda. I thought you were soliciting links from other authors to your pages. Sorry 'bout that.

Instead of "I could use some links for the two articles...", you should have written "Please list some of your health-related articles here, so I can link to them from my two new articles...".

No harm done. Thanks, Sam.  Smile

Thanks Chef. I get confused on the difference between linking in and out.

Thanks Dustytoes

Brenda, I will def feature your articles on some of mine, probably tomorrow.  I have a concert to go to so I'm soon to be walking away from my work.  My lovely daughter is performing in a summer concert.

I like the idea of using the forum to network backlinks i.e. person A has a wizzle on toothbrushes, person B has a website (outside wizzley, or perhaps a wizzle in wizzley) about toothpaste... the two are beneficial and can offer one another links.

Brenda, a great way to get your site out there is to like it on a stumble upon account or reddit, the initial link may create a small surge (very temporary), but that surge could bring the right people to your wizzle that will backlink naturally from their blogs, sites, etc... That's how my hubpages hub was blown out of the water- 1 reddit link (someone else created it not me)...

I would be very careful with creating links like that, Google frowns heavily at this. Internal links from one Wizzley article to another are great, but link exchanges outside Wizzley are a different can of worms. SY

Not if it's not overdone. If the content on all the sites involved is decent, and related too, Google will have to treat the links as genuine. Related links are what Google still uses to decide what's good. No problem at all. The problem comes in when the content you link to is NOT good, or when the links you get for your content are not good. If it's relevant for human visitors to that page and you're not afraid to show that link to your mother, there really isn't a problem. 

Don't over think SEO: a related link is a good thing, within Wizzley and outside it. Even reciprocal links are NOT an issue when they're on topic. In fact, they're helpful. Of course this doesn't mean you should link to low quality sites or articles in your niche: you don't want to disappoint your readers.

 or when the links you get for your content are not good.

Maybe I should submit this question to our new question/answer area? Katinka, how do we control who is linking TO our site (aside from links we create to it, from lenses, etc.).

My rv blog is doing well and I am careful about links to and from being of quality...but how would I know if a bunch of spammy rv sites were linking to me?

Thanks!

Unfortunately there is no solution, yet, to that problem, see my blog post here http://sheseo.com/ms-google-reverse-nofollow-tag/

Until Google implements this, or a similar, method all we can do is a) state somewhere on our site that linking to it without permission is not allowed b) send out a lot of emails stating that we don't want this kind of links to our sites. SY

Feel free to take the info in my blog post and add it there, sorry, extremely busy at the moment and having 5 dentist appointments in one week because of severe periodontitis doesn't help my time schedule neither ( nor my mood), SY
