This might be a bit of a strange question, but here goes. Over the past month, I have written 2 posts for my website, which have gone viral on social media, which have resulted in about, 30k visitors a day over a continues span of 3-days per post (humblebrag!) It is a lot of traffic for my, still growing site!
However when I investigated past the social media referrals in the acquisition report on google analytics, I have noticed a small percentage of visitors came from links via other websites...great right?
Not necessarily, when I further investigated I noticed that many of the links (and there are quite a large number of them) were placed either in comment sections and on forums by users of my website, not exactly where you want links for your site popping up.
With that being said 95% of those links are nofollow however, many of them are showing up on my search console inbound links report...
- I am worried these links can turn into penalties
- What does a guy need to do to get a descent bloody link these days? I've written as good a post(s) as any, which only resulted in 1 good clean link and 1 "okayish" link the rest are all from users on forums and blog comments.
Thanks for input
