Episode #7 in Gary’s “Top 10 Reasons for Article Rejection” video series!
In this video Gary helps us understand how excessive links, the wrong kind of links and the inappropriate placement of links can cause articles to be rejected. He goes on to explain how the incorrect use of links can make even a great article look “spammy” and create a negative user experience.
Watch the video to hear what else Gary has to say on the subject…
- Up to 4 links in your article = 2 self-serving + 2 non-self-serving
- Too many links look spammy
- Non-self-serving links should be after the 3rd paragraph
- Self-serving links should go in the Resource Box
One thing Gary failed to mention: If you’re hoping to have your article ‘picked up’ by publishers for redistribution, then avoid putting any links in your article body. The fewer links you have, the better your chances are of being republished. Most publishers feel (1) self-serving link is payment enough to the original author for having provided the content.
