SEO Internal Link

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>
Optimal Format

Use descriptive keywords in anchor text that give a sense of the topic or keywords the source page is trying to target.

What is an Internal Link?

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:

  • They allow users to navigate a website.
  • They help establish information hierarchy for the given website.
  • They help spread link juice (ranking power) around websites.
