Whether external or internal, these types of links are a key factor for making up the most important parts of your Search Engine Optimization (SEO). The better your links are constructed has a direct effect on how well your website ranks in search engine results. To help you understand the importance of these links as well as the difference between the two is exactly what this guide is all about, The more knowledge you gain in a particular subject the easier it is to apply it to your advantage.
What is an External Link?
A good external link is simply a vehicle that points your reader to another website that backs up the point that you are trying to make on your website. An external link will give you the opportunity to have similar content connected to yours.
If you were to ask any random SEO professional they would all tell you that external links are the best way to get higher page rankings. Search engines also look at external links as a vote to reinforce the validity of your website. Having other websites link to yours is far more beneficial than using links within your own website. That is what internal links are and we will discuss those in a moment.
Some Determining Factors of Your External Links
By using specific algorithms, search engines will assign certain values to your external link. The higher those values are, the better your page rankings are. Here are some examples:
- The trustworthiness of the linking domain
- How relevant the content is between the two sources
- How popular is the linked domain
You want to make sure that your navigation is working in top fashion to optimize all aspects of SEO including link building.
What is an Internal Link
An internal link as the name implies is simply a link to another relevant piece of content within your blog or website. For example if your reader is on your page looking for “The Best Anchor For Your Kayak” you would want to point them through an internal link to the page that you might have that explains “Kayak Anchor Types.”
Use internal links sparingly because to many of them may confuse your reader and cause them to go to another source for information.
Google looks at internal rankings as a way to know whether or not your website or blog is focused on quality information. It is very important that you use these internal links in the proper manner, and never lean towards the over-use of any links that you build either internal or external. All links should be used as a reference tool to point your reader to the most relevant and up to date information that is currently available on the web.
One of the main objectives of properly using internal links is to make a dramatic reduction in your website’s bounce rate. Good internal linking helps your reader to stay engaged longer on your website and that to is a determining factor in local SEO rankings. This means that your website will be added to the search engine’s web pages making sure that your can easily be found.
Only Link To Credible Sources

If you have been struggling for months to improve your website’s Google search engine rankings, and seem to be getting nowhere, you may want to look at guest posting as something that could help.
Guest posting can be extremely important in Google rankings, especially if you choose the right guests, and if you are able to post articles on their websites as well.
What is guest posting? — There are two types of guest posts when it comes to improving a website’s search engine results.
The first is a post written by a guest that is then published on your website with a backlink to their site. The post will usually be on a topic relevant to your site, and may even be a paid post if your guest wants more exposure for themselves and to their site.
The second type of guest post is one that you or someone in your company writes. That is then published on another website, with a link back to your site.
In both cases, they can be extremely helpful in improving your Google rankings.
How do guest posts help with Google ranking? — The first type will usually mean your guest will share the link to their article you have published on your site on their social media accounts.
This will immediately earn you several new backlinks to your site.
As Google takes the number of backlinks a site has into consideration when choosing how to rank it, the increased number could boost your site further up Google search results.
The second type of guest post means, once your article is posted on the other person’s website, a backlink will also be placed on it back to your site. This will allow traffic from that site to visit yours much more easily and, if the site owner promotes your website heavily, you could see a large increase in traffic.
Again, the backlink the person places on their site will also tell Google your website is relevant, and they will use that information when ranking your site.
How to get guests to post on your site? — You first need to ensure you only have the right guest posters for your site. These should be people that are relevant to the industry or field your site is involved in, or people from other websites similar to your own.
Having guest sites that seem connected to your site in subject matter is important to Google. That is why, if your website is about pop music for instance, you should not choose a guest poster who wants to write an article about a new pharmaceutical drug.
Your first steps then are to identify possible guest posters, and then approach them asking if they would like to post an article on your site.
If you want to post an article on their site, you should have a topic in mind. You should then contact the site’s webmaster and ask if they would be interested in publishing an article you will be writing.
As you will be writing the article for free, many webmasters will jump at the chance of getting free information for their site.
Once an agreement has been reached and the articles have been written, then either you should post the guest article or the webmaster of the site you have contacted should posts yours on theirs.
Just remember to add their backlink to any article they write, and request they promote your article on their social media accounts to get backlinks for your site if you are the one providing it.
What kind of response can you expect? — You should get a good response from any guest post. Especially if the other website promotes it.
The response could be in increased traffic to your site. It could even mean other sites begin linking to your website once they discover you through the article you wrote.
Every backlink helps persuade Google your site is important, and every guest post should give you at least one new one.
If you follow the same step with several sites, and end up with more than just one new backlink, your website could move up the Google rankings quite quickly.
The way a man carries himself says a lot about his personality. This, of course, also applies to the type of clothes he wears and his general style. This article seeks to help with that by giving our readers a couple of basic rules to live by when shopping for clothes.
The Fit is Important
It may come as a surprise to some, but the way your clothing fits you is of utmost importance. Readers must understand that the baggy look does not work. At best, you will look like you just got out of bed. Needless to say, it is a trend best left in the dustbin of history. If you want to establish a simple, classic, and timeless look, you have to ensure that your clothes actually fit you.
Simplicity is Key
When building a stylish wardrobe, we cannot overstate the importance of simplicity. One of the most common mistakes people make is that they overstock in pieces filled with loud colors, details and patterns. That will just make it harder for you to throw together a look that works.
Readers must understand that colors and patterns must be used wisely. The last thing you want is to end up looking like a Jackson Pollock painting. If done correctly, a pattern or a dash of color can serve as the focal point of your outfit while also enhancing the visual qualities of the rest of your ensemble.
Stick to the Classics
The last thing you want to do is to buy into trend-led pieces. This is a good way to waste money as your clothes will inevitably date quickly. That is the very nature of fashion trends, after all, they come and go with each passing season.
That being said, it is vital that you stick with the classics. For instance, a timeless look for men is the classic combination of a plain shirt and jeans. It works every time, regardless of the season. For cold weather, a classic overcoat in black would work wonders with any other piece. As a general rule, you will need to stock up on these basic elements for your wardrobe. So, make sure to buy timeless pieces and they will last you for years to come.
Make sure to always remember these fashion rules.
