Google: Item Reviews Linking To Several Sellers May Get Boost

Posted by

An item evaluation page linking to multiple sellers could get a ranking increase if all else were equivalent, Google’s Alan Kent validates.

Google Developer Supporter Alan Kent says item evaluations connecting to multiple sellers may get a ranking increase over evaluations linking to one. Kent confirmed this on Twitter in response to a concern about Google’s documentation on how to write top quality product reviews.

There’s a line in the document that reads:

“Think about including links to several sellers to provide the reader the alternative to buy from their merchant of choice.”

Does that mean a site is disadvantaged if it only links to one seller?

Kent says yes, linking to just one merchant would put the website at a disadvantage.

An item evaluation page connecting to numerous sellers might get a ranking boost if all else were equal.

It can be an excellent idea to link to multiple merchants when writing an item review, as it supplies readers with options and permits them to compare costs and availability.

Providing consumers with several ways to buy a product shows Google you’re attempting to be practical.

Linking to only one seller might offer the impression that the sole function of the product review is creating affiliate income.

However, it’s still important to divulge any possible biases or financial rewards you may have for connecting to specific merchants, even when there’s more than one choice.

Additionally, it’s always great practice to examine and make sure you are adhering to any affiliate program terms or guidelines prior to you publish your product review.

That consists of Google’s guidelines, which state you must utilize the rel=”sponsored” or rel=”nofollow” characteristics when publishing affiliate links.
