* Do not force a user to click on your links.
* Do not publish half article and do not tell your readers to read next by clicking on your interlinks.
* Always try to place your interlinks at first paragraph, before images and videos, in your mid post body and in your last paragraph.
* Do not use unprofessional words like CLICK HERE, DOWNLOAD or GO HERE.
* You can also put some related post links just below in your article body to read next etc.

7. Edit older posts to add latest post links. This is important for interlinking. Swapping your all links between your all blog posts every time. If you publish a new post that you think it can be linked from an old post, just edit your older post to add your newest post link.

<a href="" target="_blank" title="LINK TITLE KEYWORD">INTERNAL LINK ANCHOR TEXT KEYWORD</a>

9. As I said before, try to put your first interlink from your first paragraph with the relevant keyword phrase. Remember, the first impression is important. If you can hold your readers from your first interlinks, it means that reader will read your interlinked post also just after reading the current post.

10. Most important. Don’t use rel="nofollow" for internal links. This will stop crawling your interlinked URLs by search engines. So, stop using nofollow tag in your internal links to allow crawling your all links by search robots.
