As a blogger, you should be always looking to add value to your blog. One of the best ways to add a ton of value is by constantly linking to other pages on your site. This can benefit you in several ways, but here are two primary benefits:
- Keep your audience on your site longer. Not only does this benefit the user on your site that is looking for great content, but it can give you an SEO boost the longer your visitors stay on your site.
- Improve your rankings in the search engines. If you have written a foundational article about “Best Freshwater Fishing Tips,” then the more that you link to that article from other articles on your site can enhance your rankings with the search engines. Effectively, you are telling the search engines which page on your site is best for “Best Freshwater Fishing Tips.” You can also get more of your content indexed in the search engine if you have plenty of links for the search engine spiders to follow.
