You should be doing internal linking in your Wordpress blog to show visitors more of your content, and help Google crawl your site more efficiently.

But it's a real pain to remember everything you've posted, and how it relates to your current post/page!

By using this trick for Wordpress internal links, you can link to your own content more efficiently, find more relative content, and create a better user experience.

Hi Nathaniell, thanks very much for the video! I didn't know about the function "Or Link to Existing Content" till I saw your video. It makes linking so much easier. But unfortunately when I tried to add a link, and clicked the "or Link to Existing Content" part, there was no drop down menu to show all my other posts. Would you know what is wrong, and why my menu is blank? Thanks so very much!

Maybe you want to try it in another browser, or check another of your sites. It may be the theme, or a problem with your browser because you said you are also unable to view videos on WA.

If you are seeing the "or link to existing content" phrase, and the drop-down arrow, but seeing no content after clicking, I'm not sure what this could be. Sorry I can't be of more help.

You can also try typing something into the 'search' area to see if it finds something. That will search for keywords in your posts. Also, sometimes it takes a few seconds to show posts if you have a lot of pages/posts to load.

Let me know how it goes when you check these things, and I will continue to think on this problem.

Hi Nathaniell, thank you for your detailed reply. And apologies for my late reply. I just tried again today and I can now see the drop down menu after clicking the "or link to existing content page"! Yeah, so happy it's going to save me quite a bit of time. Thanks again!

Good tip on using the "link to existing content" feature. I've seen it, but never tried it, for some silly reason. This will save me a lot of time! Thanks!

Hey, me again. Can you add a link to content on the same page i.e. I have a long page and want the reader to be able to jump to the relevant section. From your tutorial I have learned how to link to other pages but cannot see how I would link within the same page. Many thanks

Any thoughts on this? Am not sure if this can be done in WordPress. I'm down to view the Video training on linking and am hoping this will be covered but would appreciate it if anyone could comment?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes, it's possible to do this, I've seen it done. Let me see if I can find the tutorial...meanwhile, you can look at Leo's training on jumping links https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/creating-jump-links-for-an-faq-page

I can't remember, but it's basically done by combining the two (mine and leo's).
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes, I checked. The URL will look like "yoursite.com/page-title/#id

You'll know from Leo's training to see what the "#id" thing is about.

Just watch out, that for ME, once I create the jumping links, I cannot switch back to the visual editor without erasing the code. It might be my theme, but I have seen other people with the problem too. Might not happen to you, but just giving you a bit of warning!

Hi Nathaniell. Update: Leo was a superstar and helped me get the coding sorted on my website. Whilst I was updating the code in the HTML (Text) page I made sure I updated before I went to visual. I did not lose the code this way - not sure if you updated before you flicked screens but I did and didn't have that problem, so I can't really say if it's the theme you have or not. Hope this helps!!

Yes, I knew of this trick, but if you go back and edit at some time in the future, be sure to:

1. Go to another post and switch to text editor
2. Update (making no changes)
3. Then go to your jumping links page

If you go continue to edit your blog using the visual, your jumping links post will be fine. But if you enter the page to edit (having previously used visual editor), it will by default, show your jumping links post in visual, and delete your jumping links code.

It's a real pain, so I use this technique sparingly, and only when I'm sure that I will not need to edit the page much in the future!
