Your site is the backbone to your online business, and social media is very important to target traffic from there to your site. With outbound links, you do not want to be pushing people away from your site, because once again your site is the backbone to your business.
As crazy as it sounds, outbound links help your site. They may have the possibility to push customers away, but outbound links is something that search engines look for. Search engines stay in business by a number of things, but they love seeing outbound links on or to your site.
There are do’s and don’t’s with outbound linking. You do not want to link to a spammy website, it’s only going to hurt you. you DO want to link to a powerful and trusted site. Possibly talk about related items to the product, something that interest your readers. That is what helps your site.
An option of outbound linking, is to sprinkle your site with outbound links such as your Facebook, Twitter, about.me, LinkedIn, Youtube, and many more social sites, as long as you’re not overloading them with links.
