Yesterday, I got fed up with blogs that link only internally to their own blogs. I likely overacted, but it does get very annoying when I start clicking on links only to find out that it's a pointer to an irrelevant article from the same blog. I don't think you could image how frustrating it is to then scan through all the links in a blog entry and find that all three dozen are actually just internal links. At three dozen irrelevant links, it becomes obvious that the person is doing it for SEO purposes and not interested in being an active participant in the blogosphere community. Now, I don't mind people that optimize their blogs, so I'm going to show you how to do the same without frustrating your readers. I'm using this blog entry as a guide. Note that some of the links point to my blog, but only when I'm specifically referring to a past blog entry and others point to other blogs and where those blog entries enhance my own blog entry. Now, I'm going to add a few related links, some on my blog and some on others, to the bottom for both SEO purposes and for readers who are interested in further thoughts on the issues.
