I hate automated links. I need control over the anchor text distribution as it helps with power distribution.
However, for the last 4years, I have been keeping track of internal links in Excel or Google Sheets.
With this plugin, I am saving time as each time I update my old article, I don't need to change my Google Sheet. It is quick and easy to export.
Now, I can follow Matt Diggity's Anchor Text Optimization ratios. I am able to quickly add targeted and generic anchor text for incoming and outgoing internal links.
InternalLink Audit Plugin quickly helps me in finding orphan pages as well.
