    Link Question


    I recently linked to an mpeg on my website (http://www.pduck.com/aliensong.mpeg) on a ezboard message board. Does linking to that increase the link number of links to my website domain or just to that particular mpeg. In otherwords, does it help having links to pictures and/or other items like this to increase the number of links you've got or should you always work on getting links to your main page?

    Link out to as few sites as possible, while only linking to authority sites AND sites that provide extreme value to your visitors... Linking out for the sake of linking will only hurt you.

    It may or may not help, but it won't necessarily hurt you except under a few unique circumstances. You can't really be penalized for who links to you as this would be a very easy way to sabotage your competitor, so at the worst you just won't get any benefit.
