Improve Your Internal Linking With These Organic SEO Tricks!

It is very important to take into account the conversion rates your site is generating, but there is no conversion if traffic is not really going through your site. Therefore, a solid linking structure should be one of your main concerns when you want your website to be a success in terms of navigation and user experience – as well as achieving organic SEO.

 

Removing Unnecessary Content

In the past, users used to love nice Flash animations with pretty vector graphics and music, but today that type of content will not get you very far, nor will it get you up the search engine’s results. This is because flash animations act as a stand-alone file embedded on to a webpage, and search engines can’t read through the content of these files because they have a proprietary format that is copyrighted by the creators of Flash. Moreover, these animations tend to be very heavy for a mobile connection which will make your loading times very poor and drive your traffic away before they have had a chance to come in contact with any content at all.

Adding Useful Internal Linking

  • Internal linking refers to links from pages within your website to other pages within your website. This is really useful for the user to navigate the site, but it is also great in terms of quality and linking to content which will rank you in search engines. Remember, though, only to use text as a link and that it carries a good, relevant and precise anchor text and not something generic such as “See more” or “Click Me”.
  • If you use any JavaScript at all, link the file externally within the header.
  • Another useful tool is the use of breadcrumbs. These are usually seen on the footer or the header of the site and they show where you’ve clicked in order to reach a certain article but generally are linked to those previous steps providing internal backlinks. Any broken links will severely affect your ranking.
  • Finally, add sitemap.xml file to your website so that robots from search engines can find the content faster and properly.

If you can achieve everything we told you above, then you are sure to improve your organic SEO.
