Why Does The Link Structure Of Your Website Has An Effect On Your Rankings?

How To Improve The Internal Link Structure Of Your Website

  1. Make sure that the most important pages on your site can be reached with as few clicks as possible from your home page. The fewer clicks you need to get to a web page, the more important it looks to search engines.

  2. Link to the pages for which you want to have high rankings from all pages of your website that are related to that page. The easiest way to get related links to a web page is to link from your own website.

  3. Use your targeted keywords in the links to these pages. Make sure that you use keywords that are highly relevant and targeted.

    Show search engines for which keywords your web pages are relevant.

  4. Make the links on your website absolute. Do not link to mypage.htm but to If other people scrape your web page contents, you'll get backlinks from these sites.

  5. Add a nofollow attribute to all links that aren't important for your search engine rankings. For example, your privacy policy page or the web page with your terms and conditions probably needn't be listed in search engines.

    The fewer links you have on a page, the more important is the single link to the other pages on your site. If possible, remove unnecessary links from your web pages.

  6. Use your robots.txt file or the robots meta tag to exclude duplicate or irrelevant pages from indexing. This is very similar to tip 5. If search engines don't have to parse your unimportant pages they can take a close look at the pages for which you want to be ranked.

  7. Check your website for 404 not found errors and redirect these old links to the most appropriate pages. You might want to use the link checker that you can access in the new IBP 10.
