    Sitewide Social Media Links


    I wanted to split this off from the other topic regarding the design company's link. Other Thread

    Are site wide links to your social media sites not acceptable now either? That seems to be very similar in nature.

    Thanks

    Links to the website's own social media? They do sound sort of similar on the surface, but I don't personally see anything wrong with that... It's one thing to place links on other peoples' websites as a "Designed By XYZ" in the footer, sitewide. it's another thing to simply link to your own social media accounts sitewide. One of them could be construed as potentially manipulative, the other is just providing a service to potential visitors - that is, easy access to the site's social media. If you're uncertain, nofollow them and there shouldn't be any problem.

    But I'll let others confirm or deny that - this is just my gut feeling.

    Agreed. It's very common and somewhat unavoidable. Hopefully more will reply.
