    Hi, I was just wondering. Say you have an article and its about something on facebook. Now lets say you have 10 other articles related to Facebook on your domain as well.

    Ive often seen people just write something at the bottom of there post like "More simlar articles" and List off 10 articles one by one underneath eachother. I dont mean the related box thing in wordpress. This is in addition to that.

    Is this bad for SEO in anyway? if not should they be anchored title links or anchored Naked URLs?

    the anchor of the internal linking will not get your page kicked out of the seeps because of overoptimazion.

    Yes. It will be considered as over optimization. over optimizing will negatively impact your SERP result

    Internal linking is good for SEO. However, internal linking by the exact URL of the destination or anchors that use keywords are a red flag in Google’s eyes. The occasional anchor that matches the URL exactly may contribute to positive SEO, but if you start doing this too much, you’re setting yourself up for penalization.
