Does anyone know if WordPress has any rules about linking a WordPress blog to an externally hosted website? I know you can link to social media sites like Facebook et al, but I seem to remember – in the dim recesses of my mind from when I first started blogging – that I read the story of someone who had their WordPress blog shut down for linking out to an externally hosted website they had.
Does anyone know if that is a rule? Can you only link the external website to WordPress and not the other way round, and even I you can’t link out can you promote the website on WordPress or is that a no-no too?
I am soon to launch an externally hosted author website for my novels and would like to connect it to this blog somehow but will only do it from that website to here, rather than vice versa, if such rules exist.
Am I right to be cautious or is my mind playing tricks with me, making me jump at phantoms?
Any advice would be very much appreciated!! Oh, and I won’t take offence if there is an accessible set of rules I just don’t know about that someone can refer me to – I can be a bit vague about details at times so could easily have missed the (expletive deleted) obvious about this!! 🙂 🙂
