A few weeks ago, I shared a handy WordPress plugin that helps intelligently link your blog content (better to naturally link your categories and tags). The message was very well received, so today I’m following up with everyone’s preview. WordPress plugins that help (automatically) link your blog posts, pages and categories.
With this plugin you will be able to give a keyword and the landing page and it will be linked globally throughout the blog:
- Define case sensitivity: By default, the keyword “dog” will match “dog” and “Dog”. To turn off this behavior, select “exact match”.
- Define the number of links per post: If you only want to link a keyword a certain number of times in an article, you can define it using the “Times” option.
- Define multiple destination URLs: If you want a keyword to randomly refer to one of the URLs, separate each URL with a ‘|’ bar.
- Define multiple keywords per URL: If you want to link more than one keyword to a URL, separate each keyword with a bar “| “. (Times will refer to each keyword not all combined.)
- Use nofollow: Optionally, you can add a “nofollow” attribute to links (eg to external links).

You can import multiple keywords from a CSV file:
This plugin makes it easy to find related posts while you are creating content.
The process looks like this:

- When writing the message, select the terms and associated keywords;
- Search for your blog using the Insights field under the WP Post Editor field;
- Add links to related articles with the click of a mouse!
In addition, you can:
- Insert Flickr images
- Insert Youtube videos
- Search and link to Wikipedia
- Google search
- Search news
- Google Blog Search
- Insert a google map
Via the settings you can configure:
- How many search results you want to see;
- Flickr search options;
- Google Maps API key (if you need Google Maps search results).
More plugins I have played with:
1. Internal Links: Hyperlinks to any given keyword with a given URL. However, there is no way to set the number of links per page. Also, when trying to delete any of the entries I received “You don’t have permission” (so who does if I am an admin of this blog ???)
2. Interlinking: It is said to relate articles to “wiki style”, but actually wiki style is actually syntax. I don’t think it’s really usable (maybe for some it isn’t!).
3. Cross-linker (same for KB Linker): seems to be installed and configured successfully but never hyperlinked (don’t know what’s wrong).
