What does Internal Links Manager do?
You simply provide a keyword and an URL. Whenever the keyword appears on your site, it sets links automatically to the given URL.
Here is an example: You have written a blogpost on “How to learn guitar”. Now you want the URL “yourdomain.com/how-to-learn-guitar” to be automatically linked whenever the keyword “learn guitar” appears on your website. You simply navigate to “Add link” within the menu and provide the requested parameters (mainly keyword + URL).
