Internal Linking: How to Unlock Your Site’s Hidden Potential

You’ll learn how to:
– Identify opportunities for internal link optimization.

Have you done everything you can think of to optimize your site, but you just can’t seem to crack the top 5 for certain queries?
This is a familiar challenge that faces website owners and SEOs alike… a plateau of sorts that can develop into a stagnating cycle of repeating the same thing even though it just isn’t working.
Halasz will take you through the theories behind internal link optimization, a set of carefully selected examples of success, and the data and sources you’ll need to implement this strategy on your own site.
By using data strategically to identify opportunities and build out content hubs on your site, any search professional can elevate their organic presence to the next level.

How To Use Link Assistant To Speed Up Your Internal Linking Workflow
Want an easy way to optimize your internal linking strategy?
Then say hello to Link Assistant.
Link Assistant is a handy feature released by AIOSEO to help users build strategic links faster.
Why are Internal Links Important for SEO?
Internal links are links from one page of your site to another. This type of link has several SEO benefits.
As you can see, internal links play a huge role in helping your content rank well. However, building internal links can be quite a taxing endeavor. For one, you have to manually look for links on your site, copy them, and then paste them into your post. Also, you can only do this one link at a time.
Secondly, adding links to your content requires you to open the post you’re adding links to manually. You also have to go back and forth from that post to where you’re getting your other links from. Building links this way can be quite time-consuming, as you can tell (or have experienced).
Thankfully, Link Assistant can help you build strategic internal links much faster.
AIOSEO is an invaluable tool that can help you effectively implement an internal linking strategy.
You also need to know that Link Assistant is only available to Pro and Elite users. That’s why, if you haven’t upgraded to one of the paid plans yet, there’s no better time than now. Also, Link Assistant is only available on AIOSEO 4.1.6 and higher, so make sure your plugin is up to date.
Once you’ve met the conditions above, you can get started using Link Assistant to build your internal links.
To get started, you’ll find Link Assistant in the AIOSEO menu.
To help you see just how Link Assistant can help you optimize your internal linking strategy, let’s go over the tool’s main features.
The Links Report is probably the most valuable feature as far as building internal links is concerned.
We’ll focus more on the Suggestions column in this article as that’s where most of the internal link building magic takes place. Looking at the Suggestions column, you’ll see a number assigned to each post. This number denotes the number of suggestions for new links Link Assistant has found for each post.
Link Assistant helps boost your internal linking strategy by offering inbound internal and outbound internal suggestions.
You can automatically add links from this window by clicking the add link tab. You can also add all suggested links by performing a bulk action. If you don’t find a link suggestion suitable, you can dismiss it. This level of automation just makes the internal linking process faster and more efficient.
All in One SEO is the best WordPress SEO plugin that allows you to easily optimize your WordPress website for search engines and social media platforms.

I rank high on page 1 for the term “online marketing”. Why? Because I link to that page throughout my whole site.
The way you can achieve similar results is by taking the pages that have your best content and linking to them from other pages within your site. In other words, build more internal links to your key pages.
You can do this by linking to your most important pages within your sidebar or footer. The key is to make sure the links are visible. If you hide them it can potentially hurt you.
There are two rules you need to follow if you want to boost your rankings through internal links:
1. Add links within your content (make sure the links are relevant to your content)
2. Link to your most important pages
It’s that simple…
Now just because you add more internal links it doesn’t mean your rankings are going to shoot right up. It can take 4 to 6 months to kick in.
For me, it took me over a year to rank for the term “online marketing”.
