I have a very clean link profile and try my best to play by the rules, generally I just knock out content and then get a few links from them. I don't ask for guest posts, etc.
I have noticed a couple of links in my search console shows the back link as "via this intermediate link" (see example img). I have searched the forum and the internet but I can get no concrete info as to what "via this intermediate link" means.
- Does it count as a back link or not?
- Is it good or bad to have such a link in your profile?
my website is the one in grey text on the image
