Internal Linking
What's painful about internal linking
We've talked to tens of different product-led SEO teams about their struggles with internal linking. We heard that
  • Without horizontal linking between categories, search engine users can't find the pages they love.
  • But publishing quality internal linking quickly is hard.
  • Focusing linking on the best user experiences is important: with demand, relevant inventory and easy ways to explore.
  • Orchestrating all that data for your pages is a data pipeline nightmare.
  • It can take months to get new internal linking modules live.
  • Once you're linking, it's hard to measure impact with the sensitivity & robustness SEO experiments require, fast enough to learn and iterate.
If these are problems with which you struggle, our data driven internal linking with functionality could be a game changer for your SEO team.
Internal linking with recipes
Recipes are simple no-code logic to filter your pages. You can choose which pages you'd like to link from or to and which pages you'd like boost inlinks for.
Linking ideas / strategy can include from, to and boost. For example:
  • link from influential pages with traffic to other pages
  • link to pages that answer unique user needs which have demand and therefor should rank
  • boost pages that rank lower down SERPs (say positions 4-15) but could do better
The Similar.ai platform also measures the impact any linking changes you implement. Allowing a test and learn approach
Simple server-side integration
Through our simple server-side API integration your page can query our API and get a list of anchor texts and destination URLs, optionally grouped into different blocks or modules and then render them. You might choose to render them:
  • For example as some footer links to help users navigate to products they want:

  • For example as part of a side navigation bar:

Internal linking recipe inspiration
For inspiration, here are some example recipes that our customers have used:
  • Link from influential pages to category pages that have relevant content
  • “Popular searches”: add an internal block that only links to very high demand pages with listings, and only links to the single best page on the site for that
  • “Related searches”: add an internal linking block that only links to pages which are topically very relevant, potentially at the expense of linking to pages with demand
  • Link from product detail pages (PDPs) to category pages that deserve to rank
  • Boost links to pages that rank 4-15 for transactional topics
  • Boost links to existing pages which Google hasn’t crawled in the last 12 months
