    Hi guys,

    I'm asking myself how to handle an ongrowing wiki in terms of linkjuice. At the moment all pages which belong to the wiki are linked to from the homepage. It's around 50 pages, so 50 links to inner pages from the homepage. The section is placed at the bottom of the homepage and on each single wiki page.

    In the process of a redesign the amount of wiki pages will grow significantly to up to ca. 150 pages. Is there a problem to link to all of the 150 pages from the homepage and the single wiki pages as described?

    Or can you recommend another, better way of doing it? I am curious to read about your ideas!

    There is no problem to link to that many inner pages, just use some hiding menus or categories, so that 150 links won't be seen in same time coz it looks spammy.

    But isnt't there a reduction of link power per link when you build more and more outgoing links for one page? Or is this an effect which can be neglected?

    I ask myself if it was better to link out to every wiki page from the homepage and each wiki page. Or if it makes more sense to have a link in the top navigation to the wiki and in the wiki itself only 3-5 pages, which are closely related are interlinked. What would be the best solution?

    Of course if You can make categories, do them, but if You have to put all links to homepage, it shouldn't be pain in the Google ass.

    the more internal or external links you have on a page the weaker that page will rank because link juice will split.


    in case you have enough link juice then thats not really a problem. sometimes you can get to situations where you have way more link juice than you need and you still dont rank so you can interlink other things as theres no lose.

    I think you are doing good, no need to redesign the link build

    @aidenhera What you say makes sense to me. You wrote about having enough link juice: is there a way to find out how link juice is distributed and if this is enough to manage much more pages?

    I am a bit scared concerning ranking losses when I take down the backlinks from the homepage and relocate them one or more clicks further away from the homepage as in the following example:

    homepage --> wiki --> category 1
    category 2
    category 3 --> single wiki page a
    single wiki page b
    single wiki page c​

    or would this be the way to go?

    theres no perfect way for interlinking IMO. you will end up linking things you dont want to link from place you dont want to for better user experience anyway.


    in my experience google really likes when you put related things in one folder (category in wordpress for example, or page parent). so just separate related things. thats most important.

    Internal linking is good because it passes authority to other pages.
    Don't overdo it
    Keep No of articles per page to a certain limit
