When it comes to SEO, internal linking is crucial but no tool shows the internal links pointing to each page within the website.
We have released two reports: "Site Explorer > Backlink profile > Internal links" + "Site Explorer > Pages > Best bu links > Internal tab."
Oops. Forgot to update you guys. We have released two reports: "Site Explorer > Backlink profile > Internal links" + "Site Explorer > Pages > Best bu links > Internal tab." So I consider this feature request to be completed :)
I think this is related to this request as well: https://ahrefs.canny.io/dashboard/p/include-internal-links-and-internal-redirects-into-ur-rank
Would be awesome if you could also see if the internal link comes from the footer or is within the body. Would make the number of internal links much more useful. Then you would actually know how many counting internal links each page has.
@Christoph Schachner: Definitely agree with this - it's a pain to tell what's nav vs what's not.
@Joseph Robison: Yes here the same issues. And with internal links you can check even more, other tools show how it works like Screaming... SiteBulb etc. But even they have their weaknesses. I wish SiteAudit would be also better for internal link analyses, follow, nofollow, anchor, title tag of links, better overview etc.
@André Deiß: Agreed. I'd love the tool to give specific advice for optimal links on a page and what kind just to think about it in the right terms, not that I'm always going to hit that mark or even aim for it depending on the content of the page.
As a follow on - if you took the data from backlinking information, you could determine the amount of link equity that flows to each page.
hey guys & girls... We'll soon add internal link counts to Site Explorer > "Best by links" report. But I'm afraid the numbers is all we can add. In order to see the actual linking pages & anchors, you'll have to use a new tool that we're working on right now - Site Audit. So I'm moving this feature there.
- Show a number of internal links per page.
- Show which internal pages are linking to which and anchor texts.
- Show how many "outgoing" internal links each page has.
- Show a page internal anchor text distribution.
Maybe this will be a feature for the crawler? Anyhow it would be useful to be able to check competitors internal link distribution just by typing in the domain in the site explorer.
Internal link excluding the navigation links. Or at-least only from the content body internal links with all the related attributes/metrics.
