One thought on “What does the outbound links check do?

  1. Arti says:

    If you’ve purposely only added nofollowed links, your bullet for this check will turn orange instead of green. It counts nofollowed and followed links. We’d rather see followed links! That’s why you’ll have to add at least one followed link to get a green feedback bullet. Followed means that search engines can follow these links, add value to the article, and perhaps rank it higher. Nofollowed links don’t let search engines follow them through to the other website. The outbound links check counts the number of links you’ve added to your post or page. That way, they don’t contribute or add value.
