Hello all,

I am wondering if someone can help please.

I am building a website that sells posters and wall art. I have recently been advised about incorporating external links on my website I was just wondering what type of external links people use (as I thought it would be a bit dangerous leading potential customers away).

Any advise would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Nothing wrong with external links which are authoratative and aid the customer in someway, but doing it for the sake of doing it doesnt make sense. What's the reason you've been advised to do this? do the links in question help the customer? if there is a slightest chance of the links taking focus of the customer away, then simply don't do it and create your own resource to aid the customers decision.

External Links are hyperlinks that point at (target) any domain other than the domain the link exists on (source). In layman's terms, if another website links to you, this is considered an external link to your site. Similarly, if you link out to another website, this is also considered an external link

You should care about the quality of external links. They should be from the high-authoritative websites from your niche.

Hello all. Thank you so much for your responses. So I have another quick question if someone can help please. I am attempting to add quality backlinks to my website. I have a page for my wall art (which is a sub-category on my website). My question is that for the backlinks, do I link them directly to my homepage, or do I direct them to my homepage/wall-art page?

Thank you so much for your help.

Don't worry about adding external links where they make sense for users but no benefit adding them just for the sake of it

Everyone should be approached consciously. If you have thematic links - that’s good. But If an unknown site will have hundreds of thematic links in 1 month - this is a clear cheat. Start with 10 links and gradually increase the number. But before creating external links, you must prepare quality content.
