Internal link must be relevant to the keyword and topic


When you are planning to add few internal link to your post then you must know couple of basic things and one of them is all about 'relevancy' to use internal link, or else, it will be considered as forcible internal link and possibly against the search engine policy. Thus, it has to be considered in a serious manner. Once you drafted the post, you may search your previous similar niche post with similar range keywords to use its (old) URL for the latest article post to create a valid internal link. You can create around three valid internal link for around five hundred words and add subsequently per words. For example, around five to six valid and relevant internal links can be made if the article is all about thousand words. So, use them wisely without violating search engine policy.

Basic html tag knowledge for Internal link


The blogger or writer must know basic html tag for internal link in order to use them effectively. The writer who have zero knowledge about html also can easily learn few html tags including 'internal link' tag. So, nothing to worry on this. There are many tutorial online or I would furnish herewith soon about them. Again, it is not tough to create it.

Target tag internal link


There are two different types of valid internal link tag is there, one is when a visitor click on internal link then he / she would stay on the same page but the internal link page will appear without just read one. To avoid this, there is tag called 'target internal link tag' which helps visitors' to open a different page or tab from internal link clickable option. That's it. So, the visitor can see both the pages by just swapping tab than going to previous or back page.

Direct tag internal link


The direct internal link tag helps visitor to move to the just clicked page without a different new tab or without staying on the just visited page. This is called direct tag internal link. For this, there is default html tag available whereas the target internal link has to be added on this tag if one wants to use other than direct link.

Broken link to be avoided


Here is some issue for the bloggers or webmaster when someone uses clickable internal link then if the html tag is incomplete or wrong then it creates issue for the search engine, visitors and finally to the bloggers or webmaster. So, once internal link is made then it is better to cross check it whether it is functioning well or not. This is the best option to avoid broken link which creates more problem for whole page, stop and reduce the traffic for your next page visits.

Therefore, these are the basic points to remember when creating internal link for each post to avoid any issue. I prefer to create internal link with 'target' (" target="_blank") html tag which I feel better than a direct tag. Hope this guideline on internal links help you.
