Hello WordPress Fans. There You go with another Lengthy WordPress Related Article From Me to You 🙂 . In this article, am not gonna be talking much though but am just gonna walk you through some useful tips regarding this WordPress Tutorial on My Best Interlinking Method For WordPress Users or any Other Site.
Your Site Interlinking Method Is Very Important and If You Could Remember or Followed my Article Updates, I Have Written some articles based on Links, where I talked about How to control Outbound and Inbound Links within a WordPress Site. I also shared my Experience on How I Successfully Changed Webspotted.Com’s Site Permalink to html and Stilled Maintained SEO.
Today’s gonna be different and I believe you might at least consider this article useful. By now, everyone should very much know that WordPress is so flexible and it gives so many convenience and easy knowledge of how the System Works. I have been using WordPress for long and as time went on, I started discovering some stuff about it and how to make things easy for You and I.
I want you to know that every link that exist within your WordPress website has a Main Domain which accepts calls of every links within the entire Site by Queries. What do I mean? We all know that a site domain name comes before every permalink.
At this Juncture, I Know The Question WHY? is whats on your Mind. So Why can’t You Just Chill 😉
What are Permalinks?
Permalinks are the permanent URLs to your individual weblog posts, as well as categories and other lists of weblog postings or a permanent static hyperlink to a particular web page or entry in a blog.
For Example. http://webspotted.com/detect-themes-and-plugins-a-wordpress-site-is-using.html
The Permalink of the above URL is /detect-themes-and-plugins-a-wordpress-site-is-using.html
Let Me Explain The Above Two Links In Source Code or Hyperlink Format:
- <a href=”webspotted.com/detect-themes-and-plugins-a-wordpress-site-is-using.html” target=”_blank”>http://webspotted.com/detect-themes-and-plugins-a-wordpress-site-is-using.html</a>
- <a href=”/detect-themes-and-plugins-a-wordpress-site-is-using.html” target=”_blank”>/detect-themes-and-plugins-a-wordpress-site-is-using.html</a>
The First Link is not really a good for interlinking method Your Articles, Images or Anything that has to do with any link within your Site and under The Control of your Default Domain.
The Second Link is so cool in the sense that you give your database or Render some request for your link to pick up its default associated domain with ease. The “/” before the permalink queries the Database Automatically to Process the Main Domain to Precede and take The Click to the real destination.
The Other Advantage of using the Second Permalink style is when you Wanna Change your sites Primary Domain and make use of a new domain. Lets take for example, you wanna change your domain and use a new one, you don’t have to be looking or fetching the existing interlinks within your site for editing. I mean by changing the preceding URL to the new one. That’s kinda stressful and will result in Some Error404 Page not Found or Broken Links.
My Above Explanation fully describes how it works for other Websites 🙂 . Now am Switching The Topic For My WordPress Fans.
