I've been working on a site for gardening, power tools, and growing and have created plenty of reasonable articles with links between one gardening subject to another by adding a link with post titles into the body copy itself. For example: 'Best Pole Saw' product review article would contain a link in the copy to 'Best lawnmower' review. I understand the benefit of this for growing DA.

On my home page and category pages, however, which is a general gardening topic, I only use Gutenberg blog blocks connecting to other gardening-related categories for example The Yard and Garden.

I'm am trying to work out if these are good internal links or are they not recognized as a link by google? I'm trying to grow my link profile and have a good site structure but I am not sure if I am heading in the right direction with this approach.

Any advice welcome

  • I'm not an SEO expert but I'd guess you can just look at the HTML source generated on the page and make sure it matches what you're expecting it to. As to how it's interpreted by Google we can only speculate sorry. – Rup Oct 18 '20 at 10:44
