    Internal linking diversity


    Hey guys

    A tool is flagging that my internal linking diversity has a 'critical problem' because to many contain my keywords...

    My website only has 4 pages - most of the links are from the nav bar and footer, I've renamed some of the terms in the nav bar, yet still it's saying the diversity isn't good enough.

    What should I do?

    Speedy ___ tests ____ .co.uk ___ / driving-test-cancellations

    Get a new tool.
    Sorry to be so blunt but with onsite links you can be a lot more flexible.

    I noticed you said links in the menu bar and footer, you only need one link to each page from each page, if that makes sense. Otherwise your stuffing, which won't help. You can still use different anchors but don't go over board with multiple links on one page. You can also create a blog for additional links and relevant content.

    Actually its the usage of keywords you are using in your h1 thru h4 tags.. The term "driving test cancellations" is used to often. In your h1 tag, in your h2 tags, notice I used the plural form of tag in the last reference. Target some LSI phrases and replace a couple of instances of "driving test cancellations" with them. Overused, that keyword it is...

    Repeating the same keyword in your h tags is sorta, kinda like bolding a whole paragraph of text.. what part of the paragraph is important. It's a low quality signal in Google's eye in my opinion.
