    Internal Linking


    Hello there,

    I hope everyone had a fantastic festive season!

    I just had a quick thing I wanted to get confirmed.

    I've been seeing good results by (finally) implementing an internal linking procedure with every post that we upload.

    We've usually been doing this with tags on Wordpress, these are do-follow links from what I can see.

    But for Christmas, we've linked 30+ event listings from within the body/main copy to our main Xmas feature and that main landing page shot to the top of the Google rankings very quickly.

    So I'll keep doing this with all other landing pages that we have.

    Would just keeping up with the tags alone deliver the same results? Or is it better to also add these same links within the copy?

    Note: The /tag pages are our landing pages that have been optimised for SEO.

    Thank you for the input.

    Marvin.

    From what I understand, adding the links in the content rather than just having tags would be more beneficial due to the contextual relevance.

    Tags, Categories in Wordpress are just basic navigation to a bunch of posts loosely related to a topic.
    However, a list of 30 directly useful events is nowhere comparable to the automatic tags system. It is relevant information and highly contextual.
    There is a reason information aggregator portals oven do better than general sites with specific expertise. The reason is their value addition. When you add value to a particular piece of information Google has ways of understanding that and thus rewarding you for the same.
    That, however, does not mean providing 30 links in the text body is an SEO hack.
    Nor, does that anyway mean its better than Tag links in every case. The Tags/ Category system is for content discovery and it will still have its uses.
    SEO Professionals in NewDelhi It is different. Don't believe me? Go check yourself.
