A couple weeks ago, we ran a poll asking SEOs and link builders where they would prefer their external links show up on a page. Well, the results are in and as expected, most SEOs would like that link in the first paragraph of content on a page.

Here is a breakdown of the hundred or so responses: :: In First Paragraph of Context said 62 respondents or 63.27% :: Link On All Pages said 8 respondents or 8.16% :: Menu said 8 respondents or 8.16% :: On 5 - 10 Pages said 8 respondents or 8.16% :: In Last Paragraph of Context said 7 respondents or 7.14% :: On Links Page said 2 respondents or 2.04% :: Footer said 1 respondents or 1.02%

Then we had two "other" responses, one saying "any link" at all is great and the other said "content of page."

Forum discussion continued at WebmasterWorld.
