One user from Kolkata “Thatware” asked John Mueller about getting backlinks from a fresh new site or having zero domain authority? John responds that obtaining links from small or new websites is acceptable and will not affect your site SEO.
He explained that not every site starts out big or old; in fact, practically every new site starts out little, which is normal. So acquiring links from these sites or linking them is perfectly acceptable. Do not be hesitant to link to these sites, and do not be concerned if you receive links from new or small sites.
Absolutely not. Every site starts off small. Getting a link from a small or new site is fine & doesn’t cause problems. Similarly, linking to small or new sites is fine.
