If you’ve read more than one post of mine, you’ve probably also noticed that there are quite a few blog posts linked within any given article.
As you add more and more content to your blog, and if you properly chose your topic, there will be the chance to link your posts together so that readers can view more of your blog.
Because it is rare that a first time visitor decides to subscribe to a blog just by reading a single blog post.
But what is that? A link… hmmm…
Interlinking also helps with SEO, if you’re into that sort of thing.
I find that I naturally add links from new posts to older ones as I write the newer posts – however the other way around (links in old posts to new ones) is a bit tricky, but you can do one of the following:
- Enable related posts. With images.
- Add links inside the post itself.
It sounds like a such a harmless gimmick, but you get a lot more views because of that. And I know (from the comments and e-mails I’ve received) that a lot of folks subscribed to this blog by first going through a bunch of blog posts, reading them, and then clicking on one related blog post or on a blog post I had linked within the article itself.
Enable Related Posts.
Take some time today to go through some of your earlier work and identify other posts in your archives that you might have written since that you could link to.
It’s going to make a big difference. Trust me.
