Now If you are thinking that how to do this then There are two ways for you.
- Interlink while writing article
- Use Feedburner to interlink articles
I am gonna explain this both techniques in detail so that you can understand them properly. So, let us start with 1st one.
1. Interlinking while writing article
Whenever you write an article on your WordPress or blogger. If you find some term related to your old article then you can directly link that term with your old article. Like I did this for 2 articles in the beginning of this article just after the Stock photo. Here is it:
But there are some limitations with this Technique. One of the biggest Limitations is You can give a link to old articles, but you can’t give links to new articles.
Our second technique is result of smart work 🙂 and It will help you to interlink your articles very easily. Let us see that.
2. Use Feedburner to interlink articles
Any idea about this? I’ve shared this before now and I am going to share it one more time. First of all, make Feedburner feed for your blog.
Make new feed and then check whether it is showing every article with whole content or not. If it is not showing then Just check Settings–>Reading of your WordPress. From WordPress, you can do settings to show full articles on your feed.
After getting all articles with full content on Feedburner feed, Technical work is Over. Your final Feedburner Feed should look like,
I use a Big image at the starting of the article. So, the structure will be same in Feedburner too! You will have same structure in your Feedburner as you have in your blog.
Be sure you can see all the articles with full content on Feedburner. Now, The real game starts. Now, Press CTRL+F in your browser and in search, Enter the keyword you targeted for any article.
For instance, Keyword is Keyword research and there is one Keyword research guide on my blog. Now, Whenever I will get the word keyword research in Feedburner feed, I will link to my keyword research guide from the article in which I got that keyword.
Similarly, I will give a link to the keyword research guide from every article in which I will find the word keyword research.
By this method, I can give the links to old articles as well as new articles. There are no limitations for this technique except your theme doesn’t allow Feedburner to show you full articles.
3. Increase Social media shares and comments
You might think that nothing is going to happen in SERPs by increasing social media shares of any articles. If you are thinking same then you are wrong. Social media shares can improve your rankings a lot.
Just keep sharing your articles through social media and by this way you will get some more traffic as well as some extra shares which will be done by users.
You will surely get improvement in rankings after increasing social media shares.
Do you think that number of comments can affect rankings in Google. It does. More meaningful and beneficial comments you will get, more will be the rankings.
I’ve experienced the power of the number of good and meaningful comments on technowlogy. Whenever I get more than expected comments, I get more than expected rankings :).
