A couple of weeks ago I shared a handy WordPress plugin that helps to smartly interlink your blog content (best to naturally link to your categories and tags). The post was very well-received, so today I am following up with the overview of all WordPress plugins that help to (automatically) interlink your blog posts, pages and categories.
With this plugin you will be able to give a keyword and the destination page and it will be linked globally throughout the blog:
- Set case sensitivity: By default the keyword “dog” will match “dog” and “Dog.” To disable this behavior, select “exact match.”
- Set the number of links per post: If you only want to link a keyword a certain number of times in a post, you may set this using the “Times” option.
- Set several destination URLs: If you would like a keyword to randomly link to one of several URLs, separate each URL with a bar ‘|’.\
- Set several keywords per one URL: If you would like to link multiple keywords to a URL, separate each keyword with a bar ‘|’. (Times will refer to each keyword not all combined.)
- Use nofollow: Optionally you can add “nofollow” attribute to the links (for example to external ones).
You can import multiple keywords from a CSV file:
This plugin makes it easier to find related posts while you are creating content.
The process looks as follows:
- While writing the post, single out related terms and keywords;
- Search your blog using Insights field under the WP post editor field;
- Add links to related posts with one click of a mouse!
Additionally, you can:
- Insert Flickr Images
- Insert Youtube videos
- Search and link to Wikipedia
- Search Google
- Search News
- Google Blog Search
- Insert a Google Map
Via settings you can configure:
- How many search results you want to see;
- Flickr search options;
- Google maps API key (if you need Google Maps search results).
More plugins I played with:
1. Inlinks: hyperlinks any given keyword with any given URL. However there’s no way to set the number of links per page. Besides, attempting to delete one of the entries I got “You do not have permission” (so who does if I am an admin of that blog???)
2. Interlinks: it says it interlinks posts “wiki-style” but in reality the wiki-style is actually the syntax. I don’t think it is really usable (maybe for some it isn’t!).
