I have a question that I hope someone can answer for me. In addition to the Yoast SEO plugin, I also use the Easy WP SEO plugin to help me get the best possible on page SEO. Easy WP SEO recommends using the primary keyword in a page or post and turning it into an external link to a relevant, high ranking authority site. When I do this I get a message under the Yoast SEO page analysis tab stating "You're linking to another page with the keyword you want this page to rank for, consider changing that if you truly want this page to rank." Now I may well be misunderstanding something, but at this point I don't know if I should be using a primary keyword to link to an external authority site. Would I be better off using an LSI keyword?
Thanks for the help.
