Bing Webmaster Inbound Link Count

Msg#: 4594661 posted 7:04 pm on Jul 19, 2013 (gmt 0)


I have one site on Bing Webmaster, and see the count of inbound links to be multiples of 3. When I check the links, it is the IP of my site being the inbound to itself. I am not sure if I would get penalized for duplicate content. My site is running Wordpress 3.5.2 and WP e-Commerce

Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Welcome wo Webmasterworld Emil.

There is no duplicate content penalty with Bing.

Regarding links from your own site (internal links) there is also no penalty.

Forget penalties, try to engage visitors and make them happy with your content.

Get a Bing "Webmaster Tools" account to get a better picture.

Thank you for the welcome and the info. I was seeing this in my Bing Webmaster Tools account, and was a bit concern.
