Support » Plugin: The SEO Framework » Automatic Anchor Text for Links

    Is it possible for the plugin to create automatically anchor text for internal links?

    Perhaps based on the title of the page?

    This surely helps SEO I believe.

    many thanks,
    Andrew

    Hi Andrew,

    Interlinking does improve SEO and helps users stick at your website, as it will allow you to highlight other relevant pages. What’s most important in this is that the anchor links are of true value to the context.

    Currently, there are no plans for The SEO Framework to alter the content — the plugin purely focusses on feeding metadata to search engines.
    Content optimization through real-time alteration for interlinking is something that’s not only distracting and disturbing when done wrongfully; it also requires a dedicated caching system when dealing with thousands of posts.

    For best results, you require subject scanning and indexing thereof. Maybe even something that allows you to create a manual index that catches longtail phrases, that also allows you to either include or exclude pages from the system.

    What I’m describing might already exist as a fully-fledged plugin. If not, then I’m definitely interested in making that an extension 🙂 It’s part of a world in automation I do still wish to join and perfect.

    Nevertheless, it’s best that this is done manually, as you can then achieve perfect and more so expected results.

    It would be nice to have an extension, I didn’t come across a plugin which only does that…

    Hi Andrew (@neodjandre),

    I’ve opened a GitHub issue regarding this, where I’ve summarized the wish:
    https://github.com/sybrew/the-seo-framework/issues/124

    There’s one big problem… and that is time.
    There are many more crucial things planned, some of which are already being worked on, and I don’t think such extension will be on the agenda until next year.

    So, it might be best for you to manually insert such links in the meantime. Alternatively, I’m sure there are plugins available that cover some or most of the aspects wished for.

    If you have any more requests, remarks or questions, feel free to let me know 🙂

    That’s not the job of this plugin, it’s not a good idea to put any useless function. Put it in extension is a good option

    @homiepetshop don’t worry about it, TSF will never touch content out of sheer plausibility 🙂

    I forgot where I mentioned this earlier, but the gist is that TSF will only do the most necessary things that apply to most websites and blogs (we make a clear distinction between Pages and Posts). Anything extravagant, branch specific or otherwise too advanced will be put in extensions.

    Adding Anchor Links is one of such example.
