    Just at the title says how do you do internal linking within your sites? I have a plugin called yet another related post and it seems to do a good job but I dont know how effective it is.

    What do you guys do and/or recommend?

    Well after reading more about this subject I still cant determnie if its best to use a WP plugin that automatically links to other pages or to manually add some links after each post. Thoughts?

    I don't use any related post plugin.

    How I link between pages are just by trackbacks inside the written post. It manually done or you can use a free plugin but I already forgotten the name.

    In my context it's mean an automatic link created by the plugin for a keywords you have set to auto link into the post you have set.

    An alternative plugin is SEO Smart Links - using trackbacks sounds interesting but they are nofollow so not sure how effective they would be?

    SEO smart links isn't being actively supporter by the developer anymore I think. This explains why sometimes the plugin doesn't work on some of my themes.

    I'm not sure if that's the plugin I'm thinking of, but there's a plugin where you can enter a keyword, and a URL, and every time you type the keyword in a post, it will link it. I think this is one of the best plugins around, and if that's the one you guys are talking about, a nd it's no longer supported, someone needs to create a new one. The plugin is brilliant.

    But I've always wondered how some of the top blogs link to other posts. I mean, I don't blog much, but if I was a regular blogger, I dont' really have the time to search my old posts, to get the URLs to link to them. Seems like a tedious process.

    I don't do any of my internal linking by any WP plugin. What I do is do it manually. Works for me and then you don't have to go chasing up the loose ends.

    I agree. That's the best way to go.

    I use three different plug ins. First takes keywords and links it to different pages, the second does a related news feed and the third is through Breadcrumbs.

    All seem to be working VERY well as my sites get indexed VERY quickly.
