    Some article directories allow to add more than 2 links, but it would be good max 2 links, and if possible try add link in article body,

    Yes, there are some problems when you put more than two links in article, if you use any in article body, your submission will be lower, because a lot of articles don't accept articles with links in its body. Also if you put 2 links in author bio part with the same anchors linking to the same page, it doesn't look natural, so it could influence your website negatively.

    Two links will be fine, however there are sites that requires a number of links others doesn't want you to put link right after the first paragraph.

    I use to put 2 -3 links inside a single article, but it also depends on the place I post it and the lenght of the article!

    If i post a 1000 word article, and it´s not an artticle directory, I may end up using 3 -4 links instead!

    But be carefull, article directories got their own rules regarding links, make sure to follow them!

    Generally I like to put two. But if the amount of words is more 700 to 800 words article, 3 is ok. But you have to check the rule, how much the article site allows.

    Placement of link depends on the guidelines of the article directories. And most of the article directories have their own set of guidelines. So, read them carefully for every directory.

    Its depends upon the sites,some sites allows 2 links in body,some more than 2 but most probably we put only 2 links in body and 1 in author bio.more than 2 links gives spamming error.

    You don't want to over do it with your link campaigns. Not only will forums penalize you, but so will the search engines. Remember to treat everyone with respect. If you don't, it will hurt your site. I have seen sites get docked 2 or 3 pages in rank. Kind of hard to rebound from.

    If it is an article in your site then internal links should be done atleast more than 2 this will further decrease your bouce rate which will signal search engine crawlers that your site is filled with useful information and you are giving your readers a good experience because of your relevant and easy to navigate content... but if these are articles for article directories or article submission sites then 2 back links are more than enough. Moreover; article submission directories will not allow such articles which are fluff and stuffed with links.

    More then 2 link may be consider spamming and many article submission websites do not allow to submit more then 2 .


    There are two ways to add links in articles

    You may add links in author bio
    You may add links in body .

    But I suggest you to add links in author bio because if you add your links in body it look like press release.
    Choice is your.
