The Benefits of Internal Links for a Blog - The functions and usability of internal links are very important for a blog, the basis and the way to create internal links I try to peel one by one. This SEO technique is still very important and useful in its application. To learn SEO (Search Engine Optimization) it takes high level patience and careful foresight. For this process requires a lot of time to achieve maximum results. Imagine if almost all of your articles are ranked in the top 10, surely the amount of traffic your blog will increase rapidly.
Thus visitors to your blog will automatically be abundant. In addition to the title and placement of keywords, the thing that is often done by professional bloggers is to build internal links.
What does the internal link mean?
Internal link is a link from one page to another page in the same blog / website, where the contents are still related or related. I wonder what is meant?
So in an article or post we can provide a link that goes to another article page in our blog, the contents of the post are still related to the topic being discussed.
Did you know how to google the quality of your blog as a whole? One of the Google assessments is the Bounce rate and do you know the term?
So like this, I try to explain briefly. If the visitor is at home on your blog, reading your article and not quickly leaving the article being read will reduce the Bounce rate. That means your article might be a very interesting article, so visitor time can last a long time.
Especially if visitors read articles other than articles that are first seen on your blog, that means the Bounce rate is low. That way Google will judge that your article is quality, because visitors feel at home.
It's different if the visitor opens the article page and only briefly reads, after that leaves your blog, that means the bounce rate is high. Well now you at least know the meaning and the term Bounce rate.
From here it is clear that Google's assessment of a blog or an article that is presented can be beneficial for the reader or not, by providing an internal link or adding an internal link, or an article related to the topic of the post.
Visitors will easily access other pages that are given an internal link without having to leave the first page. We can set the addition of links to open in the new tab / page, for example I can add an internal link as below
Things that must be considered in making internal links
Another benefit of internal links is related to SEO, as I mentioned above in addition to the title and placement of keywords in the article, internal links also provide good visibility to your blog.
The more pages that visitors access, the better the eyes of search engines. Google will index more pages on your blog and articles, this will certainly be very good for blogs and has the opportunity to appear in searching (search results).
But you also have to pay attention, that there is a rule to make internal links.
Below are some things or ways that you must pay attention to in installing an internal link in the article.
1. Articles that are made intenal links must be articles related to or related to the topic, you can measure the level of relevance of articles that will be made or linked to the link. What I know and read, this will increase the power of SERP (Search Engine Result Page).
2. Using a variety of anchor text according to the intended page. This will also increase variations of keywords, for search results on search engines.
As an example the main link is How to add an internal link , you can create an anchor link with the word How to make the correct internal link . Or according to other variants that can approach the keyword.
3. Maximum use 3 internal links for one page of your posts or articles. Remember the excessive use of internal links will be considered spam by google, this will actually backfire for your blog because Google is not very fond of spam.
So use the internal link naturally. The risk of a blog that is too busy will be kicked by Google, if that's the case, then the pain here is bro.
If your article is sequential, it will be easier to use this internal link. Perform internal links regularly, between one article and another article.
This effort requires time and patience, installs and uses internal links, and the anchor "as a keyword" makes it easier for Google robots to crawl articles on a blog.
The more regular use of internal links makes it easier for Google robots to crawl your blog. Another function of internal links is to increase Page view on the blog, the
more page views the better the Google assessment of your blog.
Although this is fairly old or classic, until now the webmasters still apply the use of this internal linking.
