31DBBB: Day #8 Interlink Your Old Blog Posts

Interlink Blog PostsBless Darren’s heart for assigning something — in his words — “a little less involved.” I need a breather and would like to make quicker progress on the 31 day blog challenge, so this really fit the bill today.

The day eight challenge is to spend ten minutes interlinking old posts on the blog. This means to link some keywords from one post in your blog to another post within your blog.

Did you get that? Ten minutes. Easy peezy.

I’ve already made it a habit to interlink new posts to old posts as I write them — when the links occur to me. But this time I went back to the earliest posts and scanned them to see if there were interlink possibilities. While I don’t want to overrun posts with links, I was surprised to see that almost every post had an interlink possibility or two.

I spent about 20 minutes doing some interlinking and plan to revisit this task regularly.

    Alison, this really helps with SEO, and it lets readers find related information; that’s why it’s one of my favorite parts of 31DBBB.

    Every time I write a blog post, I think about old posts I can link to. And then I can go to those old posts and add a new sentence or two about the new post, or just hotlink relevant words to my new post.
