Talk about the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) of the site and all the published contents, I think that will be hard to find an end. Bloggers and webmasters have their own opinions as well as the experiences. So that, I will only telling you my thoughts as well as sharing my experiences about it in its relation with the practicing of the better internal links in my own site. Internal linkings are the best simple practice for me and I am also keep on getting the good results from it.
I am neither a SEO expert, nor an amateur because I am simply build one or some blogs to share my writings on multiple topics covered. Through that writings and maintaining my blogs, I have learnt many things without any personal trainer or guru.
I am doing it my way and later I am experiencing things related to the Search Engine Optimization. That’s how I found out why internal links are my first useful SEO campaigns for all my blogs and I will keep on applying it on the days to come.
The first that I found is that no matter how bad you are applied the internal links on your site, they still contributing to improve your SEO ranking either for the main domain or for the published contents or articles.
Some months ago on 2017, I was building a blog and published many articles in it. It was the multiple niche blog that are covering my life experiences and skills or knowledge that I am understand of. I don’t even have the internal links strategy to improve one or more Page Authority (PA). I have written about 200 words up to more than 1,000 words per article.
Some articles have only a few visitors and some are getting up to thousands readers that are coming from Google. There are no contextual backlinks as well that I have been built, nothing at all. So with commenting on other blogs or sites or sharing my articles on social media.
If I will count them all as the social media backlinks, there will only around 5 or 6 domains that are linking to my blog and you know that they don’t really worked as you needed.
But, when I was focusing on which articles that are performing best on search engines especially Google, I found that the articles are getting most of the internal links from the other articles on mu blog.
There is no tricks at all about how I was writing those articles with many visitors. I just simply written naturally as what my mind was telling me to type.
What is the internal link on a blog or site?
I might get you bored for a minute ahead. When it comes to talk about the definition of internal linking, I will only gives you the short description about it.
It is the link that you put on one page or article to another on the same site or domain. Internal link is the way to connects inter-pages where it is seems that you are suggesting to your readers that if they will click on the anchored text that has been filled with the link, then they will be directed to the new page or article.
As simple as that.
How to apply the internal link on your site
Since I will only talk about my experiences in getting benefits of internal links on my blog, then I may will have different practices with the others. But, I am pretty sure that there will be the sameness even though what I have done is not perfectly planned.
The first thing that I have been applied to my contents by using internal linking to improve my article’s SEO is that I was following the way of many online news are doing. Especially to create an internal link by simply write on the new paragraph like; “Read also: This is the title of another article with link.”
Most of the times, I am doing that until now for at least one internal link using that type of reading recommendation.
Many of internal links are also found to be placed that are inside the paragraph itself that are blended well with the sentences. And both of this practices are actually have been known by many.
The problem is that, we are too much paying attention to the SEO experts and services that keep on saying to us that we should always put only the relevant internal links into our contents. Guess what? I do not care at all about that.
No matter how irrelevant the internal links are, they can really help my articles to get better ranks on Google. And no matter how lack of knowledge, logic and experiences of myself, I keep on doing that until today and keep on getting increased the organic traffics to my blog and articles.
I did also put the relevant links if there will be one, but I don’t really care about them. The only thing I am cared of is that I am trying that each of my articles have their own internal links to connect each pages.
I think that there will be many that won’t agree with me in this, but who cares. I am finding that way works to my blog, so I keep on doing the same things over and over again. I have been doing that over the last 6 months or more and there’s nothing any problems at all.
For the results, most of my articles with many internal links will be easier to rank on Google. Even, most of them still on the first page of Google for months. No backlinks at all. Purely just published the contents that I have written and giving it the internal links from the older and new articles whether they will be relevant or not.
Internal link itself is also known as one of the important things to optimize your contents on search engines called as the On-Page SEO. And sometimes, you don’t even need to apply many strategies for your site to be ranked well on search engine. If you have been researched the keywords before using Google Keywords Planner or else and have been well written the content, sometimes you just need one single strategy to start optimize your site or pages. Just like the random internal links strategy that I have been proven that they are worked.
So that, open you site or blog now and see if there will be one or more contents that you are considered to be given the internal links from the other contents to help your site’s SEO to be better than before as I have been experienced.
If you need to build a strategy for that, simply focusing on contents that you are using them as your content marketing campaign or to the pages that you want to be ranked among the others.
You don’t have to follow what I have just told you if you are in doubt about what I am doing with my blog’s internal links. Or if the site you have to optimized is your business site, you’d better find the relevant services that are affordable for you just like the Bali SEO services or the ones that you have known and experienced of before.
But if the way that I just informed you will only be applied to your personal blog or even the dummy blogs that you want to build, it is no wrong if you are also doing it as I did.
What I have been done to my blogs may or may not have the same results as you get. But, since the internal links are the read recommendation for your readers or visitors, I think no matter how you are doing it will harm your site. I mean, as long as you are doing it naturally or don’t put too much links if only you’ve got an article contains of 500 words. Just put one internal link or two and three or even more if you especially have 2,000 words of article. Or just stick to the term of how natural the internal links will be.
