Using Pretty Link Pro To to Strengthen A Sites Internal Link Profile
I hope you enjoyed the last video about Pretty Links Pro and how you can use it to make authority outbound links on autopilot. Now, I'm going to show you something I believe is even more important: having a proper internal links structure.
I've been preaching this for years: The links inside your site are just (or more relevant) as important as backlinks. Meaning, the more times you're connecting an internal page on your site. Google will see that page as “more important.”
Pretty Links Pro is meant for cloaking affiliate links, but I'm about to show you an alternative use that will blow your mind.
How To Use Pretty Link “In Reverse.”
For this example, we will use my Spin Rewriter page. We will randomly choose the word “spintax' to push internal link juice.
1. You grab the URL of the page you want to drive linkjuice to from your browser bar.
p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>
2 . Put that link into the dashboard just like you would any affiliate link.
4. We set up the word “spintax” (or an exact match phrase) in the advanced section for word replacements.
5. For your internal links, you uncheck “nofollow,” which I will leave checked by default. In this case, we want to pass the juice to the inside pages.
6. Optionally, you can distribute the inks by percentage to additional pages. Varying your link selection keeps it from looking so contrived. The only rule is the some of the internal links must add up to 100%.
Now if we come to the original article, we can see the results. Once you have set this up all you need to do is paste in the text content, and the keywords you defined will become hyperlinked to your internal URL.
This replacement method works best on flat sites: It's a killer and will save you a ton of time. It can work on a silo sites; you have to take extra care with your replacements, or you will bleed the theme.
How To Distribute Internal Links
If you come back to the example page, you will see every instance of the word “spitax” and “spun.” Having it set this way is a little overkill.I'll throttle this back a bit, which you can do from the settings, which you can do.
Shiny Object Reviews is an enormous site with hundreds of pages. Back in the Dreamweaver days to download it and hand edit every page. Even now, in WordPress, you would have to go to every single page or post phrases you wanted to replace to drive your internal juice.
So again, there is another way that you can use Pretty Link Pro, the developer (Blair Williams) ever intended, but it is powerful, and save you a ton of time as well as bringing you an SEO benefit.
