I. General Rules
These rules are hereby formulated to protect the interests of all users, maintain the site's sound development, avoid damages possibly caused by posting improper links, and guide the sellers to post links in a standard and orderly way.
2. Scope of Application
Sellers registered in DHgate Turkey.
External Links: Links imported from other sites to your own site. Imported links have a great impact on site optimization and search rankings, so external links are considered a useful way to improve site rankings. But it's not the more the better. Actually, it depends on the quality of external links posted.
II. Detailed Management Policies on Sellers' Posting External Links
4. Allowed External Links
4.1 Reliable, popular and authoritative directory links, such as Dmoz, Yahoo directory and Best of the web.
4.2 Well-known social networking sites. DHgate allows users to use well-known social links such as facebook.com, youtube.com and pinterest.com, on which users can register one or more accounts to actively share their shops. The more you share, the greater impact it will have on your shop search rankings.
4.3 Related forum promotion. You may post the links of your own shop or products in forums which are related to your shop's products, or when interacting with the target customer group.
4.4 Related community discussion. When interacting with user groups in well-known communities related to your products, you may post the links of your own shop or products. Sellers of iPhone shells, for example, may choose to interact with potential buyers in Apple's official forum, replying to meaningful content based on the theme and leaving the shop's address while helping others.
4.5 Related review site promotion. Post reviews or original articles related to your own products on Review. For example, sellers of photographic equipment may choose a review site like dpreview.com to post high-quality reviews and add the shop's link therein.
4.6 Related information site promotion. Post original articles in relevant sections of the information site, and insert the shop/product links.
5. Prohibited External Links
5.1 Link Spam
5.1.1 Third party links irrelevant to the description of the products sold, such as private blog links inserted in the page of the product or the shop, or websites related to mothers and infants inserted by the shop of electronic products, or links inserted to exchange with the partner; or external links that come from all pages of the same site, mainly referring to the public template for the website (footer or sidebar), as shown below:
5.1.2 Auto-generated external links, including external links generated in your own website via automation projects or services; external links automatically generated by the machine; page gadgets like Widgets and extension links, as shown below:
Note: The vast keywords, hidden or low-quality external links embedded in the widgets of various websites don't bring more exposure and may cause penalties and blockage from related websites, so it is prohibited to post such low-quality links.
5.2 Cheating external links
5.2.1 Embedded external links, like links inserted in the product review to indicate the location of the seller's product or shop.
5.2.2 Low-quality external links added in bulk/large scale, including links from forum profiles and forum signatures, or free directory sites, wiki pages, and other similar sites that violate Google's network management policies.
For example, a large number of signatures use the same directional keywords: Thanks, that's great info! - Paul Paul's pizza San Diego pizza best pizza San Diego.

5.3.1 Repeat the same keywords in the created link pages. These keywords are all linked, as shown below:
