Internal linking can help you build traffic as well as improve search engine ranking.

Internal linking means you link two or more posts/pages on your website by sharing links through anchor text or through the read more option. Let say you write an article about Dogecoin and share link to the posts about Shiba Inu coin or baby Doge Coin. Those who came to read your article on doge might be interested in reading in shiba inu or baby doge coin, so they will click links and visit posts.

When your visitors click on your internal links, two things happen.

One, you gained extra traffic. A visitor came to read on dogecoin but also checked a post on shiba inu.

Two, you gain engagements. The visitor clicked another post means he engaged on your website content and stayed longer, which will reduce the bounce rate. A low bounce rate means, your rank will improve.

I've come across that often times around websites i visit to read about information that caught my mind. And i saw lots of tags, and most of them caught my attention too, cos they where saying actually what I wanted. I believed the site owner got revenue and improve traffic from it too??
.its very important we link up different post together and elaborate more vividly to improve traffic more when visits reads through them.

I do this, I usually link other threads when I comment or create threads. But I link inside threads only and not outside threads or articles.
In our own blogs and article writing sites (wherever that is allowed) we can post such Internal linking articles, I used to do that too years ago.

I that is a good trick which is currently being used by news websites. The article about Manny Pacquiao's boxing has a link to a news article on Pacquiao's political career. That means the website had earned twice of my view because I also clicked on the link. Maybe bloggers should be aware of this trick.

Internal link is very important when it comes to optimising a content on your blog for the targeted keyword. Internal link gives a quick reference to the new page on your blog so that Google search engine will be able to crawl it on time I'll get it indexed. There are some premium plugins which makes internal linking job pretty much easier.

Links are two types one in bound another outbound. In bound links are the links that points to another page on the website and outbound links are the links that point to another website. Internal linking means creating in bound links that will improve visitor retention among many other things.

Linking related content inside your website helps in two ways, one reduce the bounce rate on your site (which is beneficial for SEO), two, increases your traffic (which is beneficial for earning revenue on your site). I always interlink my related content and this has helped me a lot to increase user engagement on the site.
