Wednesday, June 1, 2016, 17:29:49 GMT by Andy Favell

Tuesday, May 31, 2016, 16:55:40 GMT by Graham Charlton
Internal linking is a key SEO tactic, one which allows websites to send clear signals to Google on the relative importance of various pages. It also works from a user experience perspective, helping visitors find pages that are relevant or potentially useful to them.
