posted on 4th of august, 2010

Links are a huge component of SEO. Most people know that inbound links coming to your site are a great way to increase your traffic and SEO, but what people often overlook is the links on their site.

When creating links, it’s always important to use relevant link text rather than something generic like “check it out” or “read more.” Whether you are linking to an internal page or an external page, try to make your link text descriptive of the page it is linking to.
