SEO Smart Links Plug-In Review

May 29, 2010 by  Filed under: SEO 

As everybody is on the hunt for inbound links to their website to build PR and increase traffic, many fail to optimize the links within their site or sites. This articles discusses the WordPress Link Plug-ins that you need to increase your “intra” and “inter” site linking.

When you are writing an article, you no doubt refer or hyperlink to other authority sources on that same topic. Often, those authority sources are other articles that you have written. This presents a great opportunity to build inbound links to your content using keywords that you choose. However, this process can be very time consuming. Manually adding links to articles with the appropriate keyword anchor text not only takes a lot of time but disrupts the flow of your writing.

Enter WordPress Link Plug-ins.

WordPress Link Plug-ins automatically hyperlink your chosen keywords AND allow you to declare important link attributes such as nofollow. The bottom line is that WordPress Link Plug-ins save you massive amounts of time and drastically increase your ability to effectively create inbound links using the anchor text that you want. I have recently researched three WordPress Links Plug-ins and recommend just one: SEO Smart Links.

I chose SEO Smart Links because the author, Valdimir Prelovac, seems intent on creating, and maintaining, this Plug-in. SEO Smart Links also has some great features that the others do not…like fast, effective import of the your link list (great if you have multiple sites), linking several terms to one page, and auto linking pages.

I will not go into detail about the setup and activation of SEO Smart Links as this is covered on their web page. Instead, I will tell you how I use it and how it can drastically save you massive amounts of time.

Here is how I use the SEO Smart Links Plug-in. After I write a post, I review the article for clarity, grammar, and spelling. Remember, during the writing process, I have included no hyperlinks. When I create a WordPress page, I have the SEO Smart Links page open. For each keyword used, I will then simply add the hyperlink on the keywords page.

The beauty of this approach extends far beyond the immediate article. Whenever I use any of these terms again, in any article past, present, or future, they will automatically be hyperlinked. This Plug-in is also ideal for affiliate products and interlinking within and between sites. As everyone involved in SEO knows, inbound links are what turns an isolated, lonely website into a well-trafficked attraction.

We often cannot control the inbound links from outside sources. They may not use the keyword anchor text that we desire or they may link to the wrong page. We can only absolutely control what belongs to us. It is essential that you build and manage your internal linking structures. And the best tool for this is the SEO Smart Links Plug-in.
