  • Content Settings - You can configure posttypes to be used for linking. Individual posts that are to be excluded from building internal links within their content can be blacklisted. You can also specify maximum frequencies for the number of links.
  • Link Settings - Customize the output of the generated links and set them to nofollow if you want.
  • In this example, a post about the topic "Hyperlinks" (1) is currently edited. The heart of the plugin is the keyword editor (2). There you can store all keywords that should refer to the current article. In this example, an additional gap within the phrase ("clickable ... hyperlink") was configured. You can see the result on the next screenshot.
  • The frontend output of another article about the topic "Anchor text". The content contains a phrase, which corresponds to the configuration as seen in screenshot #3. The Internal Link Juicer automatically builds a link to the post about "Hyperlinks".
  • The dashboard - From there you gain insights in all built links and anchor texts.


  1. Download the file and unzip it
  2. Upload the internal-links folder to your wp-content/plugins directory
  3. In the WordPress admin area, click “Plugins” on the menu and activate the Internal Link Juicer
  4. Set up your keywords in the post editor and let the magic happen!


What is internal linking and what is it good for?

An internal link is a link that is placed on a page which links to another page within the same domain. Internal links have an extremely high value when it comes to SEO and also the general optimization of websites.

Internal links…

  • have an immense influence on SEO
  • help search engines find new content quickly
  • help search engines to better interpret and classify the content of a page
  • can distribute traffic to well converting subpages
Will the plugin slow down my site?

Absolutely not. The Internal Link Juicer was explicitly designed for fast loading times and maximum performance. It solves the problem of generating links using its own index. This prevents additional delays while loading the frontend.

Will the pluign improve my search engine rankings?

Of course no guarantee can be given for this. But building internal links within a website is a basic discipline for SEO. Internal links help search engines to find your content faster and understand it better. Both are important parts for good rankings. We help you to massively improve the structure of internal links and even automate the whole process stress-free.

Does the plugin work with shortcodes?

Yes – the plugin works with content (within posts or pages) that gets generated through shortcodes.

Can I disable linking on specific pages?

Yes, at any time! With our blacklist feature you can easily disable the generation of links on individual pages.

Can I change the style of the auto generated links?

Yeah, definitely. With the help of our templating system you can change the output of your generated links in no time at all.

This is for the basic free version. Installed and worked great. A small problem was quickly fixed by the developer and that means good support. The basic version is for small and medium sized WP installations. Because if a large index is reached, some functions (editing a post) become slow. There is only one thing missing: a way to manage all that AFTER you created the indexes. If you want for example to remove something, it is VERY hard to find where a keyword is and remove it. Other than that everything works as expected, no errors at all.
