Please explain “back links.” I think I understand what they are, but I want to be certain.
Thank you.

Sherilyn –

Simply put, a backlink is a link coming from another website back to your own, also called inward or inbound links. Some search engines use backlinks as an indicator of the popularity of a site.

For more information, just do a quick search for “what are backlinks” and you’ll find a lot more information on the topic.

– Marc


Okay, I now understand more about generic backlinks, but how are they used specifically in this blog? Does that mean that in one article I create a link to suggest to my readers that they read another of my articles (assuming it fits the topic and all?) I thought we could only do stuff like that in the resource box. Can you give a little more info about what is acceptable on with backlinks placed inside articles? Thank you.


Sherilyn –

I’m afraid that the wording of the point you’re referring to in the blog (point #3, 3rd bullet) has created some confusion for you and others. What we said was, “Use new articles to help cross-promote other articles you’ve written by using back links.” What we should have said was, “Use new articles to help cross-promote other articles you’ve written by using back links to your site. This is best achieved by publishing a new article with a link directing readers back to a content rich area of your site, such as your blog, your site’s article archive, etc.”

We’ve updated the blog to reflect this clarification.

Please note that according to our Editorial Guidelines, it is not acceptable to link one of your EzineArticles articles to another unless they are articles in a series. And in that case, the link would be treated as one of your self-serving links.

Hopefully, that clarifies the issue for you.

– Marc


Yes, THANK YOU. You certainly hit the nail on the head that time. You have completely unbefuddled me, and I think “unbefuddled” should be a word, since it says exactly how I feel.
Totally clarified.

Don’t you just love the English language? I loved the “unbefuddled” word…conveys so much meaning. Explains precisely how I have wished so many times for such an explanation to leave me with just that feeling.

Do I understand correctly that I can have a link to one of my websites, other than in the resource box, in an article?
I have actually started using EzineArticles widgets on my website. What I really love is the fact that I can put the link to an article on the relevant page of my website. For example articles about scuba diving only appear on the scuba diving page, travel insurance articles on the page concerned with travel insurance etc. However, just as I am writing this, I am thinking of maybe adding an “articles” page to my website and see how that works.
Marc, I really enjoy your little videos, although short and to the point, there is always plenty of “food for thought”

looking forward to the next newsletter

greetings from sunny Bali/Indonesia, Sybille

Sybille –

You are correct, you can include a link to one of your websites in the article body. However, we don’t recommend it and there are a few stipulations. You’ll want to check out this post for more information on the topic:

And thanks for the kind words regarding the videos. It’s nice to hear that they’re serving their purpose. :-)

Right! Writing a blog or an article is not enough. Unless you invest some more time in its promotion you cannot expect a good result. Good post!

In my opinion, the toughest task is to write quality articles and blogs. Specially I find it very tough as it took long hours for me to write a quality article. However, I am improving on that rest stuffs like promoting articles on social sites and sharing with friends is not that much difficult. Thanks for your tips.
