You can start by reading this: http://moz.com/learn/seo/internal-link
Ever heard of Google?
Yes i have heard of google. Why would you ask that?
Because google is a good place to find answers for your question
I know that, let me rephrase question, is there any seo benefit of doing internal linking?
Yes there is. Google it and read
It definitely can't hurt.
Just Google it, you can find the answer easily on Google.
It is meaningfully linking you internal pages or posts. and it is useful when it can help your users or your customers find what they want
Then we can quit this forum. If there is many answers on google. Right ? Maybe he just want to discuss with us
By creating a strong internal link structure, you make it easier for the web crawler to crawl your website and if your internal links are relevant to the page they're posted on, you can keep visitors on your website longer (since they'll be reading your other articles), thus decreasing your bounce rate.
I am not meaning to sound like a smart ass but I find it very odd that you've been a member of this forum of vast knowledge for 3 AND A HALF YEARS and you do not know the benefit of internal linking??? Strange.
Internal linking is very important not only for SEO but for an enhanced user experience. Best practices for internal linking dictate that any links pointing to pages within the website should provide value to users and also assist search engines discover more pages from that website.
Internet linking are the links to your pages on your website, it is important to offer easy navigation to the visitors on your website.
Internal linking provides so many benefits for SEO. If you can't be bothered to do your own research, here's a quick rundown:
1. you can get actual users to visit more than one page of your website - yes, that's right, the biggest SEO benefit is that you get more from each person who visits your site! This means more chances to sell to them, get them to sign up to your newsletter, get them to click on advertising, get them to click on an affiliate link, etc which means you can spend less time worrying about SEO and traffic in the first place.
2. when people click through to other pages, it reduces bounce rate and increases time on site - some say that this is an increasingly important factor in rankings
3. gives you opportunities to make your anchor text profile look more natural
4. helps search engines work out what your site is about - especially if you link together relevant pages to become a topical authority on a subject
Here's my favourite article on the topic: http://www.hobo-web.co.uk/optimize-website-navigation/
Think you'll find that i wasnt the one who said use google in the first place smart arse. I was answering OP's question.
Wikipedia is the king of Internal Linking and that's why it's ranking #1 for tons of words and phrases. The more deep Internal Linking structure you have, the more link-juice will flow throughout your site.
One important rule that you should have in mind when you build an website is internal linking, and good site architecture. A clean site will always be responsive for the visitors and Google, and keep them more on the site. That doesn't mean each time when you add a text to your blog page you should link to home page or other page from the site, but you should keep in mind that you need to have a good circuit of the pages on the site. Have as examples the top sites and you will understand why is so important internal linking.
