Question about blogroll

Hello everyone,

Just a dumb question, but something that i have been thinking about and maybe you might be able answer it. Let's say that you have been able to put a link on someone else's website by way of blog roll (essentially putting your link in there "links section).

Now let's assume that this website that you have a link on creates content every day for 1 year. My question is, would you have 365 new links pointing back to your website? One for each piece of content that this other website created for the 365 days because the blogroll appears on every page of the website? So when you look at, say backlink checker (or any other backlink checker software to see where your backlinks are coming from), it would look something like this:

www.theotherwebsite.com/contentpage#1
www.theotherwebsite.com/contentpage#2
www.theotherwebsite.com/contentpage#3
www.theotherwebsite.com/contentpage#4
.....
.....
.....
www.theotherwebsite.com/contentpage#365

Or would the link from this blogroll JUST appear once, from the home page? Just wondering how many times the link that you have on someone else's website (by way of blogroll, or a links sectons on there website) would appear in terms of the number of times.

    Hi perswealth,

    What you are talking about is a sitewide link. Yes, technically it creates a new link for each and every new page of content that gets created. This is not the same value as you would see from the same number of links from many different websites.

    Remember this, Google does not rank your website based on the count of your backlinks. If that website gets lots of backlinks, to each new page that gets created, then it would be very good for you, however if that website doesn't get many backlinks then all those links will not amount to much. The total backlink power from 365 different websites will typically amount to much more (100s X) linkjuice than the link juice you can get from backlinks on a single website, given all other factors are equal.

    A single website only has so much linkjuice to pass, not mater how times your link appears on that website. While many different websites will typically gather linkjuice from many different backlink sources passing a lot more total linkjuice.
