Your content is the only way to help people find you online when they don’t know about your business yet.

They are simple to achieve and will be quick to implement.

1 How to link your blog posts together?
We’ll start with interlinking your blog posts. So how do you link your blog post together when you have not done it before? When you have written your blog post you select a few words or one word that relates to another blog post you have written. But it also has to kind of relate to the same topic of the blog post you want to link from. To achieve this you simply highlight the words or word you want to use and turn it into a link that links to the blog post you want to link too.
Then when someone reads your content and comes across your clickable link, when clicked they will be directed to that other post on your blog. Without having to physically go and search the blog itself. Which is a great way to get people from one blog post to another blog post to another blog post? That’s what it’s called interlinking.
