Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

Creating Internal Blog Links

Shortly after starting to blog I realized it was more efficient to use a link to a previous post than repeat the information again.  This is easily achieved using a link in the new post to the previous post.  This is known as building internal links.  It is a good way of avoiding redundancy within a blog while getting some of the older posts traffic.

There are three ways I've found to create internal links.  One of the easiest ways is to use the widget Link Within.  This add three links of interest at the end of each post giving the reader similar posts to check out.  It is a bit indirect but quite effective at creating internal links.  Another way is to add an element (widget) in blogger that lists the three most popular posts.  This widget should be put where readers will notice it either before the posts or in the side bar.  The final way is to use a text link within a post to a previous post.  All are effective ways to create internal blog links.
