The problem with Weebly blogs is that they are all in the form of a template, so the headers, meta description, and URL are all out of your control. Linking to a specific part of a post is hard to control because of the setup.
Here is a workaround. This will not work for people using Internet Explorer (for now).
First use an embedded HTML element, and put it where EXACTLY you want the link to point. If you want to link to somewhere 3/5 of the way down the page, thats where you put the new element.
Then drop this code inside, brackets included... <a name="bs" id="bs"> (replace bs with anything you want). To link there, use this, anywhere on your site that you want, to point to the desired location... http://www.THE URL OF THE INDIVIDUAL BLOG POST or just the page url with the link on it.html#bs
The green letters are from any url, the blue ones should be replaced with the targe url (end with .com BEFORE the # instead of html on non-weebly pages), the red ones should be replaced what you decided to replace bs with above. The link can be in the text, or anywhere else that you can add working links.
You can even get clever with it like this. (the button at the bottom of that post leads back here the same way). Note that the link above, inside the text doesn't work, only the hidden one below this text. The target HTML element auto-hides when done properly.
Funny, right? Click it for a link that leads straight to the top of the next post. Put it anywhere and Have fun with it.
Trouble? View the page source, to see what I did. Or copy the link address (NOT the picture url) from the pic above and the button below, and paste them in notepad. I used bs in the links to keep things simple.
Put the target element in an element common to every blog page, (in a custom header or blog sidebar) to link there instead- instead of to single posts.
These links will work everywhere else online, too.
What is the difference between the link www.4adds.com
4adds.com and http://www.4adds.com? Why is there sometimes a trailing / after a link? What is the effect on SERP?
If you have been backlinking for a while and can't answer these, you may have been wasting time and effort with links that probably aren't as useful as possible, In effect, you could be doing 90% of the work and got 60% of the reward. Without checking Webmaster tools, you wouldn't even notice. A few more seconds, and that would have been a perfect link, instead, you may not even be helping your site.
First of all, if you set up your site correctly, and you have a top level domain (not a link like subdomain.weebly.com) there should be no difference between the link yoursite.com and www.yoursite.com. You can check this in Webmaster tools, as well as fix it.
Next, you need to realize that links to your site shouldn't all point to the same place. That isn't how people link naturally. Think about it, do you see a blog post you like, then go to the homepage to get a link for it? Neither will your users.
Also: the links that just lead to your website url can point to more than one place. You can point to the HOMEPAGE, or the WEBSITE. This is controlled by the format of the link, www.newbloggers.com, newbloggers.com, or www.newbloggers.com/ are this sites homepage, domain, and directory links (respectively), as examples.
The trailing / at the end of a .com means the destination is a DIRECTORY, not a single page- and thus it leads to you website, not your homepage.
EXAMPLE: If you delete your homepage, the second page on your site then becomes the homepage, because the 'homepage' is what loads when your site loads.
SO. A link to www.yoursite/toindex.html is now broken, because that points at to a specific page, one that is gone.. But the link www/yoursite.com/ is just fine, it points to whatever page comes up when your site loads.
REMEMBER: The reverse is true as well, if you add a new homepage, then the html link points to the same page as before, which is now your second page. But the .com/, while not broken, POINTS TO A DIFFERENT PAGE NOW.
The directory links are best for when you are creating links, but won't be able to edit them later. But the yoursite.com/html link passes rank to a single place. while directory links split it.
Personally I only link to a single page from sites I control, or internally. The other option is to do this (for a blog post, as an example) uses a permalink, which you can edit in a Weebly blog post.
Here's how: When you are in the website editor, click on edit on the desired blog post in Weebly. Go to the grey column to the left (post settings) the permalink option is at the bottom, in a editable text field, under the categories list. Bear in mind that there is a prefix to what is in that box, for example, the box for this post simply says /linking.html - take a look at what is in your address bar, to see the rest of this post's address. CHECK YOUR WORK after publishing a post before using any links.
DO NOT EDIT posts that already have backlinks without using a 301 redirect. You will break them and lose what effect they have. AND, you can't redirect to a single blog post in Weebly, just a whole page (at least, redirect it AND pass the link authority). The next post will cover how to set up redirects to broken links.
There are two site designs to use, I call them vertical and horizontal. Vertical sites are like a pyramid, one page links to several, which link to more, and so on. Horizontal pages go with the strategy of linking the homepage to every other important page on your site, then having a few deep links from those. Deep links should NT be linked directory[age,, and keywords should be optimized for every page.
The vertical site is one where you want to use a landing page, and strictly limit all links from it. Every link from your homepage should be pointed to a page on your site, if possible. This works by dividing up rank as you go along. Use deep-linking with this, as the page grows larger. The deep links 'refresh the link juice, so that the 3 and 4th level pages aren't getting just a tiny fraction of what your main page gets.This is problematic if you plan on directory listings, or reciprocal linking from your homepage,. THIS DRAWBACK CAN NT be compensated using NOFLLOW. page sculpting.
My linking strategy when I first got started
A horizontal page, allows you to link from your homepage, but is more complicated.. The main linking strategy is to spread links around, and link to DEEP PAGES with no external links. Internal links should point to internal pages as well, THEN point most of your 3 level links to your to the homepage. Still link to the homepage, of course, but the money links go deep, This is best for blogs, where newer posts are more important to rank than your homepage..
The issue is that you need to keep an eye on which pages on your site need links, and which ones don't, on a page by page basis, and new pages with breaking nws, or content that will become dated,need linking ASAP, or they won't rank.
This is a cosmetic change, only. The link is still there , for all intents and purposes, it's just hidden, so if you motive is the removal of a link for SEO, this won't work.
But if you want to get rid of the link for appearance this will do the trick. You will need to open up the main css style sheet/ Click 'Design' at the top of the page, then click the link that says 'edit HTML/ css" in the Design Options to the left.

Left side of the page
One complaint I hear about Weebly sites is the lack of an h1, h2, etc, tag elements. The h tag is a heading, think of it as a topic sentence of a paragraph. Good grammar helps, but you can live without it. The biggest benefit is for SEO, the bots love heading tags, and keywords placed in them get a boost.
Best practice for these tags are h1 at the top of your site, then h2 below them. and so on. You should only have one numbered tage per page on your site. Using h1 tags more than once per page actually hurts you, so stay away from that.
