An internal link is a type of hyperlink on a webpage to another page or resource, such as an image or document, on the same website or domain. Adding internal links to the comments on your blog is another great SEO trick to help get better search rankings on Google and other search engines.

In the video below I do a quick demo of adding links to both the Wealthy Affiliate and WordPress comment platform.

If you have any question or comments please let know,

P.S. More quick tips.

Cool tip, actually. Honestly I never thought about editing the comments of another poster to add more internal links for my site. I’ve been learning lately that internal linking actually does improve SEO, so this comes at the right time, so I do it to my own replies. Will start implementing this tip for sure.
One suggestion I have, is to make sure that the initial “http” link in the box is selected and ERASED before you paste links in there.
It’s happened to me before where I ended up with a broken link, because I forget to take empty the field. It probably harms SEO to have broken links in comments, so that’s something to watch out for. It’s a quick fix, sure, but a slightly annoying oversight.
Great post, Greg

Hello Greg,

Another awesome article! I love how you use videos because it’s easier to follow for NOOBS like myself. I’ve just recently started my own blog with WordPress and this video has been very helpful.

I was wondering how to do it, so instead I would just provide the full URL on my posts. This makes a much cleaner and professional look.

Thanks,
Eric

Hi Greg
Thanks
Video was really helpful. I am a newbie to word press and I am glad that I landed on your post.

I guess once I get used to blogging, then learning how to add these internal links become second nature.

If you have the time, I would like to learn how to link from one part of the post to another part of the same post. I now that it is possible, but I do not know how.

Perhaps you could make a video of this as well.
Thanks for the help
Regards
Roopesh

Hey! Unrelated to the post but, you are really good at talk training! I was pretty impressed with how well you could explain internal linking! Good training to by the way?

Do you think that it is okay to use affiliate links for internal linking as well? I would take a guess that it is okay to use internal affiliate links within product reviews, but I am not sure.

    Hi Jacob, Thanks for the comment and question. affiliate links and internal linking are 2 different things. An internal link is one that links back to the same site but a different page or post. Affiliate links would be outbound links to other sites.

    Hope that helps,

    Greg
