Best practices for Internal Linking
Be natural and contextual
Don’t link just for the sake of it. Use an internal link because your user will benefit from it. Keep it relevant and natural.
Use anchor text judiciously
Don’t use the same anchor text every time you link internally to a page. Also, avoid using the same keyword while linking.
Use follow links
All internal links should be ‘do-follow’. Link deep. This increases the crawlability of your website and also passes the link juice for maximum SEO benefit.
What is Internal Linking in SEO?
Internal linking refers to linking of one web page to another within the same website. If done strategically, it can help you increase the crawling speed of your website and gain better search rankings in shorter time period.

As a result, internal linking is a never ending exercise; it keeps on going as long as you publish new content or create new pages.
