There are a couple of factors that determine whether a link will pass equity to a website or not.
Here are a few to look out for:
Another factor that determines whether a link will pass authority is its relevance.
If the page you’re linking to isn’t relevant to your content, Google will know and you won’t get any value from this link.
Don’t just link to pages for the sake of linking - it can be detrimental in the long run.
Another thing to consider is whether the page is crawlable or not.
For this reason, it is important to make sure the pages you link to are crawlable if you expect value from these links.
If you link to a page that is not indexed by Google, it won’t add any value.
Google trusts some websites more than others. This is because lots of websites have built up quality information over the years creating undeniable credibility.
A link from these websites will pass more value than a link from a website that was launched a month ago.
The position of the link on a web page also determines whether the link will pass value or not.
For example, a link located in the body text of an article will pass more value than one that is located at the footer of the page.
This is because writers include quality links in articles when they add additional value to the page.
Google and other search engines know this, so once the link is established, it passes value and equity to your page.
