Just a quick post to share something which I think is extremely useful.
I actually discovered this whilst researching for another site! What I wanted to do was find a way in which I could ‘guarantee’ that all my posts and pages would link together even if I missed one or two whilst doing some manual internal link building!
If you haven’t read it already then you might want to check out my previous post ‘Link Building for Blogs‘.
What if there was something that would monitor where visitors go on your site and which post or article they looked at next?
Maybe that ‘something’ would then leave a link on that post telling future visitors that “Readers who viewed this page, also viewed:” this article…
Perhaps something like this:
There is! and it’s called “Where do they go from here?”
What’s more, it’s FREE…
The link is based on what your visitor viewed last on your blog. It uses the main image from that post and the post title.
What’s more, it doesn’t look too bad either?
How do i get this?
As I said above, it’s free as a Plugin for WordPress. Usual thing, go to your WordPress Dashboard, Select ‘Plugins’ and ‘Add New’ and then do a search for “Where do they go from here?”.
And then install it.
What’s the benefit of this?
When you start adding a lot of content to your site, it can be difficult to ensure that you’ve done all the necessary link building.
After installing this Plugin and letting it work for a few days, you should notice that most of your content is starting to get linked together. As visitors browse your site, they are unknowingly carrying out a bit of SEO on your behalf!
Can’t be a bad thing?
What I would advise is for you to take a bit of time going through the settings for this Plugin.
I decided to keep it very simple and it seems to work for me! In case you want to follow my settings, I’ve included some screenshots below.
Click on the images to enlarge them if required:
If you follow these simple settings you’ll end up with a maximum of 5 fairly discrete internal links per post or article.
That’s it for this post.
Like I said, just wanted to share this little treasure with you. It’s not often you find something useful which is also free!
Let us know how you get on with it.
