Internal vs. external links. What’s the difference?
How to use links to boost your SEO
Link to your home page
One very important internal link everyone should have on pretty much every page of their website is a link back to the home page. Let’s use my private practice: Aspire Counseling in Columbia, MO as an example. On my any page of my website other than my home page, I could say “to begin seeing a therapist at Aspire counseling you can call us at” and leave our phone number, highlighting Aspire Counseling as my anchor text to the home page. But, I don’t want to do that. Like most practices, I already rank for the name of my practice.
How the Simplified SEO Consulting team uses anchor texts and internal links:
Internal links need to open in the same tab or window
External links need to open in a new tab
