Adding and Editing Links in WordPress

Not everyone uses the Links section in the backend of their WordPress. However, there is Adding and editing links in WordPress.

It is important to note that the Links section in the WordPress backend does not have to just be for blogroll links. It can be used for many things like affiliates, relevant sites to yours, supporters, and much more. You have the capabilities in WordPress templating to make a template to call a specific link category to a page if you want.

This is where YARRP will go

  1. first of all Nile i absolutely love the site the design looks so clean, hopefully one day i can get to your level though i doubt it. I always find using high PR sites for links usually works well especially the Wiki Wiki’s.

  2. This is cool. I always saw the links feature as discussed here on wordpress, but never really understood what it was for. Seems like it’s more versatile than I thought and am going to figure out how I can use it on my site ASAP! Another great WordPress tutorial. :D

  4. It’s been a while since I used a blogroll and I’m glad there are new features built into WordPress for them… like the images you point out in the video. I’m going to revisit this for some sidebars that need more content. Thanks !!

    A Web page without links is like a radio without buttons; if you have nothing to click or press, you have no options, and no place to go. WordPress, a free blogging site, allows bloggers to add formatted text and links to their blog posts. Links that you see on Web pages consist of HTML code..

  7. Very good tutorial about editing links in WordPress. This is one of the few areas of WordPress that I haven’t explored till know, but I will in the future. I wasn’t aware that we can make so many things with the links in Wp, but it seems like we can improve the navigation for the users.

  17. Hi Nile,
    Thankyou soo much for the post. When I first started blogging I did not see this link feature but when I came to know about it then I used/am using it and took/am taking full advantage of this feature. This post is helpful for many readers because most of us especially who are new to wordpress don’t know about it.

  18. Nile,

    Nice little video about a feature that most people just forget to use because it was never explained to them.

    I know that it can be helpful to the blog site and blog post SEO to link to a relevant site from inside a blog post because it lets Google know that you not only have, but are Linking to useful information.

    I am wondering if the links in the blogroll that you add by hand as described in this video would have any effect on SEO.

    Great video.

    I must admit I was surprised not to see Kimberly’s link listed!

    Thanks for more great, useful stuff!

  19. Thanks for the great information. I think the links feature is essential for people who want to be taken seriously. I use it to link the sources to back up any facts that I include. I plan to share with others I think could use this, and appreciate you sharing!

  20. Hi Nile,
    Thanks for sharing your knowledge on building the blogroll or using the LINK feature. I really haven’t explored this much and will now do so. Thanks for sharing that Better Blogroll plugin – I will take a look at that.

    Do you suggest I share blogs that are in my niche because frankly I haven’t found many. Perhaps there is a list of Dofollow health blogs – do you know?

  28. Nile,

    Thank you.

    I have been hunting all over for a useful and easily digestible user guide for wordpress. I’ve just started a blog of my own and despite it seeming like a fairly easy package quite a bit of it, I have found, is counterintuitive.

    I will be going over all your posts as my needs dictate but I just wanted to say thank you for the help.


  29. Hi Nile,

    Great tutorial! I do use the link feature but I did not realize you could add an image instead of having the ugly text links.

    Thanks for the great information!
