How do you do your internal linking?

A long time ago I was advised to implement a "silo" tactic to arrange the internal linking of my website, but I'd like to know if this has become outdated, whether there's new and more effective ways to do it and if there are any tools today that can help with potentially automating the process.

    Silos are still the way to go.

    • Hello and thank you for your response, could you please elaborate on your own approach to silos? Do you create content pages based on a silo you'd like to put in place or do you make your content pages and decide their positions in the silos after the page was indexed and potentially received organic traffic?

        Start with silo in mind. It's easier.


        See Bruce Clay's post on Silos for SEO. Best description of the process I know of.

    Siloing a website means grouping related pages together, either structurally or through linking.
    So first decide with silo needs more content for the main page of this silo.
    And link the new content page only to this main page,

    • Hi and thank you, I've found that in terms of site architecture and structure, things are a little easier. Pushing content every couple of days requires mostly internal linking. At the time I do not have a pre-set plan for my publications so every couple of months I end up revising my internal linking silos to optimize them based on the best-performing content pages created recently. In this case, I know the content I will be generating for the next two months, but I can't really properly optimize to the best of my ability the internal linking before the pages generate results. What is your approach to this?

    Doing internal linking is very simple but, in order to do some strong internal linking, you have to put an extra effort. You should link the articles that are related to each other so that user can visit that article to gain some extra information related to that topic.

    -Use a Keyword that regularly searches.
    - Attach Links to Important Pages or sites.
    - SEOs strategically link to important pages.
    - Don't copy the content from another site make it your and unique content.

    You can link your own articles inside your article. Just write more quality content and link them to one another as well as use anchor texts within the articles.

  • Yes, I do believe "silo" style linking is still valid. I always try and link to additional content that makes sense.

    I have not heard of any automation, would be interested to learn how that would work.

    Silo structure is one way to go, but what I do generally is this:


    When I post a new article on the blog, it is usually written around one or more keywords in mind. Then after it is published, I search for the keywords inside the wp admin panel so it finds all the posts that contain this keyword. Then I just link from those keywords to the new post. You can do the same of course with pages, too.

    Interlinking means connect the pages with one another;
    Homepage > pages > Homepage > posts > Homepage.
    Hope this helps!!!

    Ok so first clear things up that silo structure is not something different. Its all about grouping same topics in one umbrella. That links to each relevant page which links back to main page.
    Crawlers find it useful to find links between related topics. Moreover is also user friendly because they find more related topics within content.

    I follow a simple rule when interlinking

    I don't link primarily based on keyword anchors

    Instead, I link based on whether the page I'm linking from will be benefited (in terms of content depth) by the page I'm linking to
