    Hi, Abhishek!

    How are you doing today?

    The internal is extremely important for enhancing better SEO for your content.

    The internal can help improving your blog conversion and guides readers to different of your relevant contents. What’s more, it can past the link juice value to the content and helps raising the position of your keywords rank.

    I do agree what you mentioned, using title tag for your anchor is really important, but make sure you don’t use your primary keyword as anchor text if you want to rank the content.

    Thanks for sharing…

    Hey Abhi, Internal linking is one of the crucial factor in SEO. Without proper interlinking you can hurt your rankings badly.

    I have seen many bloggers making mistakes while not interlinking their content. Google loves interlinking and external linking too.

    I also follow interlinking on my PBN’s it works best. Google feels that these links are natural and PBN dont look suspicious too in eyes of Google.

    Internal linking is probably my favourite quick win with low resource overhead – the number of sites I come across with little to no internal linking, especially from rich content areas like blogs, is truly shocking! If done properly it is fantastic for SEO and handy for browsing users, too.
