I rank high on page 1 for the term “online marketing”. Why? Because I link to that page throughout my whole site.

The way you can achieve similar results is by taking the pages that have your best content and linking to them from other pages within your site. In other words, build more internal links to your key pages.

You can do this by linking to your most important pages within your sidebar or footer. The key is to make sure the links are visible. If you hide them it can potentially hurt you.

There are two rules you need to follow if you want to boost your rankings through internal links:

1. Add links within your content (make sure the links are relevant to your content)
2. Link to your most important pages

It’s that simple…

Now just because you add more internal links it doesn’t mean your rankings are going to shoot right up. It can take 4 to 6 months to kick in.

For me, it took me over a year to rank for the term “online marketing”.



  1. Neil how can I apply guest post big sites like Forbes and many and what are terms and conditions asking becoz you had done many times.

  2. What a wonderful presentation. sir If I have label Google in my blog and I wrote a post on Related to Google so can I link Google label URL to my Google related post such as Google .

  3. If my blog is already made a label of Google Names. And I write a new post and use the Google word anywhere in the whole post, can I add the link to my google name label in that Google keyword? Can or not

  4. Hi Neil, if my posts show related posts on the side or at the bottom, does that count as an internal link?

  5. Thanks for the tip, Neil.

    Question: will this work for a brand new blog as well? I'm guessing it will, just not as fast as it will for a high-traffic blog.

  6. Hi Neil… I am so glad I came across this video. I remember you saying on a previous video a couple years back that Silo interlinking is not necessary and it should be just a bunch of happy links connected to other relevant pages in your website. Is this still true? Thanks again for all the information.

  7. Hey Neil, thank you so much for all this content, loving it. BTW My question was can we do the same from footer, my site does not show a sidebar on the homepage, so can i use footer as it is visible on every page?

  8. I love your short videos, they're so valuable and so short that you know you always have time for at least one, but that never happens, there's always next one 🙂 Great content, thank you very much!

  9. Hi, good information video. I am running a job portal and displaying job listings from multiple websites and clubbing them in my own site, I want to give all current openings at one place. Please suggest if this type of external links are allowed in SEO, will that help to improve ranking?

  10. Hello Neil, I was working for a company on seo, my work is to increase my keyword ranking to the first page, I was getting backlinks from different websites but the keyword was not moving can you give me some advice to movie that keyword.

  11. I just want to learn about link building techniques for a school and university website i want your guidence so i can easily perform.

  12. Hi Neil, If lets say i have published 10 articles on my website, and i want 2 articles to rank (just an example) … can i have all the articles pointing to those 2 pages? And… How many links (pointing to one internal page) can i use in one article?

  13. Is the same strategy applicable for e-commerce sites? If so woocommerce has an inbuilt feature of related products and upsell. Do I need to built internal links in any other way? Thanks for sharing the video about internal links.
