Google endorses a way to hide internal links
Some SEOs have been trying to hide internal links in the button element in order to block PageRank from worthless webpages for a long time. But they never had an idea if their approach was a yay or nay. The trick to hiding links was recently highlighted by a person to Google’s John Mueller.
John Mueller replied to his question about links in the button element, validating that Google can’t see them. In case you don’t know, SEOs refer to this approach as Post/Redirect/Get Pattern (PRG Pattern). The phase was never mentioned in their conversation. However, our sources confirmed that this is what they were discussing.
There are certain reasons to hide links this way in online websites, especially in e-commerce stores. By using the PRG pattern, SEO can easily hide those links from Google and block them from having to deal with them.
