Internal Links Setup

Now it is time to find places on my page where to place the links to our new content.

Sometimes we will need to tweak the content here and there to make a link relevant.

I will start with the hardest ones: the geolocation ones.

They are hard to place on my page because its content is not related to any location specifically so I will need to be careful not to place irrelevant links just for the sake of it.

So I’ll put the first link in the footer because I have a little Google Maps embedded there with my address so the first link will be:

Read this article until the end and you will see how we increased website traffic publishing 11 pieces of content linked from my main page, the page we want to have traffic going to.

The problem to solve…

During the first half of April/2018, the volume of accesses I was getting on my site started to decrease

Taking all of the information into account…

I want to write content that meets the top 3 types: list, how and what.
