As discussed in the previous posts, we all know how important the internal links for any website are. You can never have a complete SEO strategy without internal links and an effective internal link structure. Here, it is important to note that besides internal links, internal link structure is equally important.
To make your internal links effective, you need to have a proper and well-integrated internal link structure. If your internal link structure is poor, then no matter how many internal links you put on your website, you will not be able to reap their benefits.
Types of Internal Links
Internal links connect the pages of the same domain. They enable easy navigation and allows users to browse the website thoroughly thereby emphasizing the importance of each and every page of the website.
There are three types of internal links that are commonly used on websites.
- Menu links
- Sidebar Links
- Footer Links
- Body Links
Internal Link Structure
Internal link structure is the way web developers or search engine optimization experts link the pages of the website. A good internal link structure is one that is:
- Has links in its copy (Body Links)
- Has 75-100 links on each page
- Links pointing to the same page with different anchor text
