In the leading paragraph, you reference a previous article about 27 black owned cosmetic companies. Why not link directly to that previous article instead of forcing us to search for it? I’m interested in reading it but can’t find it! Not to mention, linking to it in this article is considered “cross-linking” and will boost your SEO.


Typically, we always cross-link referenced articles. Guess this one flew under the radar. The article has been updated. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, King!


Thanks for the update!
