Internal links

laptop30349514.jpgIf you own a website, marketing is a matter of SEO, and getting some traffic to your site. One of the things you can do to get people to your site, and to get higher rankings on search engines is to build your internal and external and inbound links. Most people are so worries about the links coming into their site, that they forget about the ones they have total control over, the ones on their own pages. The following is a look at how to build internal links.

First, consider your internal link structure. SEO and high rankings for competitive terms will play a significant role in your internal link building. You want to select a specific set of keywords to build your site content and internal links around. This will give your site high rankings on the top of SERPs.

The first thing you want to do when it comes to internet links is to make the keywords on them absolute. Any extra of secondary keywords should be discarded, as they may not be relevant, and could hurt your rankings. Properly naming your pages, and using the right keywords is crucial to your internal link success as it pertains to SEO. So, you want to make sure your page names are formatted like so: That results in the pages helping one another in the SERPs, and if someone copies your content, you will get a back link.

The next thing you want to do is be careful to limit your outbound links to about ten. Your page will be more focused, and add link power to the transmission of the page's own keywords. If you do this, when you start building external links, they will be more productive, and you will find yourself getting higher rankings.

Next, make sure your anchor text is optimized. You do this by ensuring your main keywords and keyword phrases show up in the title and on the page. It is great to do this, and if done properly you can really nail some of the best keywords. However, be cautious not to optimize the same page for more than 3 keywords. The best way to do this is to keep the content to less than 750 words total, and if it exceeds that, create a second page where you optimize a different set of keywords, or variations of the keywords optimized on the first page.

If you have content links inside your page content, keep them high on page, as they carry more influence with search engines. So, keep the contextual links above the fold if possible. When you use contextual links, be sure to link the main keywords for the page you want to optimize. So, if you want to optimize page 2, use the keywords for page two in the contextual links on page 1. This will make the internal back link a better quality, giving you higher rankings.

When creating internal links, keep programming code off the page, put it in its own file and hyperlink it to the page. This helps the search engines find what it needs without a bunch of excess stuff to sort through.
