Welcome to Tuesday Turn About Link Party 48. We hope that everyone had the very best Mother’s Day that you possibly could have under this challenging situation.
Since none of my kids live in Dallas, I rely on phone calls and cards. Hearing the voices of your kids, even when they are grown~ups, is always special. My son even called on Saturday, thinking it was Sunday. Such a sweet young man, he called back on Sunday so I got double mom talk.
Wow, you all rocked your projects last week. We are so excited that so many bloggers partied with us last week ~ maybe the most ever. I know that we are all home more, on our phones and computers. Pinterest traffic has skyrocketed in the past 2 months. I know that I have been searching, scrolling, and Pinning more than ever. Let’s just hope that the traffic and the linking don’t slow down when stay~at~home is lifted.
I have 1 really good tip for you today. I love tips, don’t you!!
Carol’s Blogger Tip
Add internal links to your blog posts. What’s an internal link? It’s a link to another post on your own site that relates to the current post you are publishing. For example, in the post that I published on How to Update Discarded Containers, I included a link to an earlier post that was related, How to Use Gold Leaf’, which is the internal link. Even including these two links in this post is using internal links. Why do you want to include internal links in every post you write? Google likes it. Internal links give your post and your site gravitas. They tell Google that you are an authority.
- improves usability.
- helps spread the link juice
- boosts page views
- improves Page Rank
- improves time on site
- helps bots to crawl and index your site
Extra TIP: If you are linking to an older post, this is the perfect time to update it with new Pinnable images, check for SEO, keywords, grammar, and proofread. Then re~PIN it to your relevant boards and tribes. Pinterest will read it as fresh content. I do this every time I use internal links.
Here’s last week’s TTA 47 if you would like to take a look.

Ready to see my Features of the Week? Be sure to hop over and see what Julie and Michelle have chosen. Please PIN them to your own boards.
My friend (yes, in real life, we have met for lunch and chatted about blogging and girl stuff, but that’s not why I picked her project.) Cindy of County Road 407 will tell you she is not a DIYer. I will respectfully disagree. This bird feeder that she made from an old metal chandelier and clay pots is a great idea for your yard. Don’t you love vintage vignettes? Debra of Common Ground combined a vintage bucket, and watering can and a bird~inspired dish towel for a super sweet grouping fit for any kitchen or breakfast area. With Memorial Day in a couple of weeks, I chose this red, white, and blue tablescape for your inspiration. Karin of Karin’s Kottage also includes some menu ideas you will love.
