SEO Love With Internal Linking

By Cenay Nailor | SEO

Apr 26

Recent articles on my main blog have focused on the organic traffic you want from the search engines, and how to get it. I hope you have been following along.

Today, I want to show you a shortcut.

I say *show you*, because this little tip is best understood with a video where I can show you click by click and step by step exactly what to do. I reference a couple of sites in the video that will be linked under the video.

Just to recap the basics of SEO and inbound links though, you should understand that Google counts each inbound link to your post or page as a sort of *vote*. A pledge of support or an agreement from your peers (niche partners) that your content is relevant to the topic at hand.

However, a little known fact is that links from your blog also count as votes. Now, all this is just from an SEO standpoint, but there is another benefit to all this internal linking.

More eyeballs.

That’s right. Your visitor finds something he or she likes and clicks to go read the rest. At that point they have demonstrated their willingness to *consume* your content. Great!

Now give them more.

This video will show you two additional techniques to keep their interest, deliver exactly what they want, and get a little search engine love in the process.

It’s a win-win.

Hi Cenay. I certainly didn’t realize that INTERNAL links helped with search-engine rankings (well, Google that is). It makes a LOT of sense to have links within your own blog so that people can be ‘navigated’ around your site automatically.

Leaving this sort of thing up to chance would make no sense at all.

Why leave it to chance when you CAN have control over where your visitors go once they’ve read the content that they came to your blog for.

Providing engaging content can really bring in a stable surge of readers to a site. But that is not enough since good SEO really counts too.
