- Internal Links are hyperlinks that point at (target) the same domain as the domain that the link exists on (source).
- In layman’s terms, an internal link is one that points to another page on the same website.
- Code Sample
<a href=”http://www.same-domain.com/” title=”Keyword Text”>Keyword Text</a>
- Internal links are links that go from one page on a domain to a different page on the same domain. They are commonly used in main navigation.
- These type of links are useful for three reasons:
1.They allow users to navigate a website.
2.They help establish information hierarchy for the given website.
3.They help spread link juice (ranking power) around websites.
- Internal links are most useful for establishing site architecture and spreading link juice (URLs are also essential). For this reason, this section is about building an SEO-friendly site architecture with internal links.
