March 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm Seaphoto. I wanted to let you know that I removed an external link you added to the page Alternative medicine because it seemed inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page, or take a look at our guidelines about links. Thanks. SeaphotoTalk 01:56, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Alternative medicine with this edit. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links may include, but are not limited to, links to personal websites, links to websites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a website or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page rather than re-adding it. Thank you. SeaphotoTalk 02:04, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Please stop adding inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Alternative medicine with this edit. It is considered spamming and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, additions of links to Wikipedia will not alter search engine rankings. If you continue spamming, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Thank you.
