    Curious question? Will google (or other search engines) penalize you for having to many internal links to your own website?

    Example:
    Lets say my website is myexample*com and is running wordpress. My keyword is "my example." I post an article with my keyword in it around ten times or more. For every instance of "my example" in the article.. I make it a link to myexample*com

    <a href="http;//myexample*com">My Example</a>

    Will google penalize you for this? Or is there a limit on how many internal links pointing to your domain you can have per article?

    Thanks

    You really need to link to the inner pages of your website, mix everything up with the keywords and start small and build more and more

    Dont just spam "my site" all over the place, mix those keywords around

    I do mix the keywords around a lot, just didn't think about linking to inner pages of the site. Thanks for your input. I'm assuming I will not get penalized by google for this then?

    Randomness is the name of the game, and if it'd look natural to link internally, then go for it.
