We know that adding internal links to our blog posts is important for SEO. But if you’re just getting started, you probably don’t have many blog posts to link to yet.

But there’s a problem…Say you want to create an internal link from one of your old posts to your new post about "urban beekeeping." Sounds easy, right? But which of your old posts did you e

In a previous post of mine, I railed against shoddy-looking websites that hark back to the late 1990’s:https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/szev/blog/4-tips-o...A website that’s a total eye sore will face a tough road ahead no matter how good the content is.
