If you’ve been running a WordPress site for a while, chances that you have a lot of external and internal links on your site.
And it’s okay. These links help your visitors to find the relevant posts; and these also help search engine bots to crawl your site accordingly.
But the problem is, sometimes these links lead visitors or bots to the error pages. And managing those links is not easy at all.
Now the good news is, like everything, you can manage your internal and external links by using a plugin.
There are a handful number of WordPress link management plugins out there. Among them, Link Whisper is my personal favorite.
I’ve started using this plugin for internal link suggestions. Later, I’ve discovered the power of this plugin.
This single plugin can help you to manage both internal and external links of your site.
Let’s see how to do it using Link Whisper Plugin.
How to Manage Internal & External Link In WordPress
Once you’ve installed and activated the plugin, go your WordPress Dashboard > Link Whisper > Reports and then click on ‘Run a Link Scan’.
After scanning, it will show the link stats, most linked to domains, and the total number of internal & external links.
Now go to the ‘LINKS REPORT’ tab. Here you can manage internal and external links of each post.
Inbound internal links refers to the incoming links of the post. Outbound internal links refers to the outgoing links from the post and Outbound external links are the external links of the post.
Click on the expand icon to see the all links of each section.
You can remove external or internal links from here.
You can check the broken links from ‘ERROR REPORT’ tab.
So this is how you can manage all links in your WordPress site.
Hope this plugin helps you manage all links of your WordPress blog. If you find this post useful, help me by sharing this post Facebook, Google+ or Twitter.
