When voting to close because of Exact Duplicate, SE does a nice notion of linking the question in a comment. More of a theory then practice question, but would these links count towards the Announcer, Booster or Publicist badge? As well, does the link being shared have to come from the same page, or can it be shared by other questions with similar topics where it would be useful to link?
Links in comments and other posts do not count toward the count toward the share badges.
In order to add toward the count, you have to link to the post from a site that is not on the Stack Exchange network.
