    A question about internal links


    hey guys, i really can use your expertise in the internal linking structure of my website.
    some people say you should have 2 links per post or page, others say 4 to 5.
    most of my posts are between 800 to 1200 words, i'd very much appreciate it if you guys tell me
    the best way to implement my internal links on the website.

    Note: my website is brand new, i have 124 article, posted 21 so far.

    2 links per page ?
    I assume your not counting your menu, footer links and all the other things on a page.
    It is the total number of links per page that you need to keep an eye on. Any page rank your page gains will be divided by the total number of links which is also then passed onto the receiving page. So if you have 1 or 10 links within your article it dont really matter but reducing the total quality makes the remaining links more powerful. Many SEO experts recommend keeping this total to under 100 but in all reality lower provides you with more link juice so less is more.

    thanks for the info chedders , yea i was talking about links inside the articles, not the whole page, the whole page have 25 internal links including sidebar and header menu and sub menu and footer links, so that means i have the same links in every page, isn't that wrong ? , what's the best way to distribute the links so it would help get a better search results ranks ?

    Google just count the links in total so it's your call on how many or not to include.
