You may be confused about these types of links, But in this post, I’ll clear all the confusions which are in your brain.
What is a Link?
Ans: A link is a URL, you’ll create to redirect the user to a specific location on the website only when they click on the link.
What is Internal Link?
Ans: Internal link will only redirect users within your site, means you’re only saying visitors check your another post, article or image within your site.
- Create more internal link as it will boost your SEO strategies.
- Only link to relevant posts.
- Include your keyword in anchor text for internal links
- Don’t add rel=”nofollow” tag in internal links, as this is your own website.
- Don’t link to irrelevant posts, as this is the sign of spamming in front of bots.
What is an External Link?
Ans: An External link is the opposite of internal link, it means you’re sending users to another website, which is not a part of your website.
- Don’t create too many external links, as you’re saying robots to check this site instead of yours.
- Add rel=”nofollow” tag in external link.
- Only link to high DA sites if needed.
What is an Anchor Text?
Ans: Before you create links, you should know what is anchor text, basically, an anchor text is a text that appears on the link for example:
Behind this text there’s actually a link that you’re point somewhere.
You can easily create anchor text in any CMS (WordPress, Wix, Weebly or blogger) by hovering over the text and pressing a link button mostly looks like a chain icon.
But if you’re doing it on HTML editor then you can add this tag: <a href=”Yourlink.com”>Anchor-text</a>
So this was a basic guidance from me about creating links, whether it’s an external or an internal link.
Whatever you do, just don’t overdo it. This is a tip from SEO experts. I mean don’t create too many links on a single page that it looks spammy.
