  • Interesting fact that they only count sitewides as one link, but I wonder how they decide which link to count? Is it always the homepage? The one with more page authority?

  • But they don’t always count them as one link, I’m sure. I’d much rather err on the side of caution & remove or nofollow those sitewide ‘functional’ links as much as possible to absolutely minimise the possibility of any of them having a negative impact on a site’s search profile.

    with relevant links becoming more and more important we are constantly reaching out to blog owners to do a guest post on relevant site to our niche. This information brings up a point, if that site has sitewide link’s Google may not even count the link placed in our article. it could be a complete waste of time.
