    SEO for WP blogs – Ares too many links a bad thing?

    Of late, I created a wordpress blog, and now I want to enhance it on the World Wide Web. For the same, I thought of doing SEO. I know that if I get more links, my blog will be more popular. Hence, I am planning to take full advantage of SEO Smart Links plugin. The online reviews say that this is good as it creates numerous links to the same page. However, I also read that too many links is a bad thing as the chance of the site being backlisted increases. Do you also agree with me? Will this harm my blog, SEO wise?

    If you are taking about too many Out Bound Links then yes it is bad for SEO. But, if you are talking about backlinks then it is not a problem.

    Sahil is correct in saying that backlinks are generally good for your site. However, you need to be careful that you don't build a huge number of links, really quickly for a site that would not normally justify that amount of links. The search engines view this as a suspicious activity and my decide that you have been spamming.

    I haven't personally used the SEO Smart Links plugin, however it appears to come from a reliable source and it is promoted on WordPress.org, which would give it some credibility. Also, it appears to focus on building internal links on your blog, improving your internal link structure can only help your site.
