    I am guest posting on different websites and backlinking to increase SERP ranking. I want to know if I’m backlinking too much or not enough. Key facts:

    ​

    Article length 500-800

    I typically include:

    External links to other sites X 2

    Link to my home domain X 1

    Link to article on my site X1

    ​

    Is this standard practice or could this look unnatural to google?

    Thanks a lot for your thoughts on it, much appreciated!

    One to three depending on length of your post. However, you also need to link to at least one other source, a reference (like wikipedia, but not wikipedia, but like wikipedia, but don’t link to wikipedia, but it’s probably ok to link to wikipedia).
