30 Days to a Better Blog: Interlink

Today’s tip is a short one, but an important one. Get in the habit of interlinking (linking back to your own content) within the content of your post. Your blog isn’t a place to be shy and self-effacing. If you have good, relevant content – link back to it!

Here are some effective ways to interlink to your own content:

  • Hotlink a keyword to its respective category page or tag page
  • Link back to a previous article when that topic is referenced
  • Add a list of “relevant posts” at the bottom of your page
  • Create a Top 10 list and link out to posts you’ve written on a specific topic

By linking to your own content, using the correct keywords and phrases, you help increase your SEO and you also help your readers easily find other content on your blog. This results in higher pageviews and repeat visits. And you may even see where your content gaps if you find you have no applicable posts or categories to link to!

For today, add a few links in your post.
