What are implied links?
« on: August 07, 2014, 06:49:21 PM »
Just recently I read an article on Forbes magazine that suggests the newest Panda algorithm update will favor something called, 'implied links' more than explicit links.  These will not be literal links but usually just where someone mentions a product or brand or company within the body of an article.  So for instance, if a blogger mentions how she loves using Tide to remove stains (but doesn't link to that site), then they would still get credit for being an 'authority' at stain removal.  This is one of the newest updates.  Are you going to be using implied links in your backlinking strategy?
