Good internal linking: A way to the top in blogging

Internal and external links are good for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) anytime, any day.

Internal linking which some call inbounding is the process of adding published works on the site on the body of the current post visitors are reading.
It helps them to stay longer on a website. And Search Engines love seeing internal links of closely related posts on a post.
It goes a long way to mean that the site is professional in what it is doing.

Internal links can come in as prefixes or they can be proceeded by:
ALSO READ
A MUST READ
HAVE YOU READ?
DON'T MISS
SEE THIS
A BOMB
CHECK THIS OUT
etc
They lead to internal links.
See
www.naij.ng ;
www.pengician.com
etc.
NOTE: Related posts at the bottom of any post is quite different from INTERNAL linking (inbounding).
There are plugins for good internal linking and there are professional bloggers who fix them at times even better compared with those available plugins that will carefully scroll the website to bring those related LINKS and carefully insert on the post.

A post without any internal link is like a man who puts on one clothe. While a post with an internal link or links is like a good fashion designer whose wear(s) is so so colourful to almost every eye on the street/road.

I will narrow this piece to only internal linking. While an external link links to another website, an internal link links back to the same site and help readers to see closely related posts published before that particular post.

At least in 10 posts, there should be like 3 proper internal linking. It gives Search Engine BOTS a whole lot of joy.

One fantastic feature of proper internal linking is 'Google Analytics'. It helps the site owner to know how many minutes a visitor has spent on the said site.

Internal linking is like telling a stranger about the features or some areas of a house when entering or visiting for the very first time.

There are bloggers who just write and post. While there are some who write, proofread very well and carefully insert internal links before they hit the publish button. Some bloggers can publish as many as 50 posts daily without any internal linking. Website that are very guilty of this are www.lindaikejisblog.com ; www.vanguardngr.com etc they are just after posting. Some don't even RENAME photos properly for Search Engines to do a fantastic work on image search. Maybe they are so careless on this because traffic is no longer their issue anymore.

As someone who is a netizen or nethead who wish to make a good living from the internet, be ready to make internal linking a priority anytime you have an opportunity to make any post. Never neglect this. You might not know who is waiting or observing to hire you as a freelancer to be an administrator in his/her website.
