Internal links and It's importance in SEO?

Internal Linking

What are internal links?

Internal links are links between pages on the same site. For example, a link from the home page to a category page or links from a product page to similar product pages.

In short, internal links are links within the site and not pointing outside of the domain.

Why are internal links important?

Internal links are important for three main reasons.

  • Crawl
  • Relevance
  • Priority


Here's a brief explanation of each.

Crawl 

Internal links provide navigation for users and search engines. A solid internal link structure ensures a site is maximizing crawl efficiency, which is the building block of SEO.

Relevance 

Proper internal linking provides relevance though linking related pages together and doing so with descriptive anchor text. A good internal linking structure creates 'neighborhoods' of content on the same subject or theme.

priority 

Internal links provide a signal about what pages are most important on a site, generally measured by how many times you're linking to that page. Essentially, if you think a page is important, you link to it more often.

Internal links are links within your own website and are important in creating proper navigation and crawl paths, enforcing relevance and signaling priority.

How to use Keywords in Website Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

A keyword is a term that is used to match with the query a person enters into a search engine to find specific information. Most people enter search phrases that consist of two to five words. Such phrases may be called search phrases, keyword phrases, query phrases, or just keywords.

SEO Keywords are the phrases in your web content that make it possible for people to find your Website via Search Engines. A website that is well optimized and offer relevant content might get higher search engine organic ranking.

These days, keyword optimization, due to keyword Spamming in the past, has been reduced in importance by search engine like Google.
