Someone please explain to me about private links

  1. I want to put links to my most used admin pages (in Absurd Old Bird) and so I created the links via the blogroll links page, made them private, and added them to a Links widget, but they don't show. This is the third time I've tried it. Am I doing something wrong? Surely the whole point of private links is so that the blog administrator can see them but other people can't? Or is there some other meaning to 'private' in this context that I just don't get?

    The blog I need help with is absurdoldbird.wordpress.com.

  2. The purpose you are using the links you are creating for is not an anticipated one. Links are the currency of the blosgopshere. Links pass link juice between blogs whether or not they are "private". When it comes to links "private" means you (The Admin) can see them only in your Dashboard > Links Menu (Blogroll). They do not display in the Links widget.

  3. Oh, I see. Okay, thanks TT.
