    Hey fellow bhwers, I have a question that is bugging me about my website. It is silo structured with silos of about 10 related articles each and it is using a page-list shortcode plugin at the end of every article (inside the body) with "Related posts" showing title and thumbnail of the other posts in the same silo.

    The thumbnail and title both use the anchor text of the title of the related post, meaning there is 2 links from every post linking to the other ones with the title headline as anchor text. Since it's 10 of them, this means every page gets in total 9x2link=18 linternal links with exact post title anchor text.

    My question is if this will give me any over-optimization penalty problems? I have read that internal links using the naked url is bad and may lead to penalty but what's the deal with post title as anchor, especially in this quantity?

    Would appreciate any input or links that could answer my question. Hate not knowing if I'm under/risking a penalty or not on my money site.. Thanks.
