Have you ever try to build internal links for a WordPress site with over 600 blog posts? As a WordPress agency, we do—one that we are terribly afraid of. The time and effort needed to build internal links, along with SEO optimization are crazily challenging. Until date, there isn't a quick solution until we discovered Link Whisper.

What is Link Whisper (and why it matters)?
Link Whisper is a WordPress SEO plugin that helps you build internal link building faster and more efficient. Prior to the discover of this plugin, link building was tough.
We had helped clients to manage internal link building structure for over 600 blog posts—and that is not a fun thing to do.
We even thought of ways to automate the entire link building process!
Link Whisper allows you to do exactly that—from building internal links on automation (yes, A-U-T-O-M-A-T-I-O-N) to checking broken links, you get a pretty much full-fledged SEO plugin just like SEOPress that we talked really a lot on WP Maven.
Link Whisper Review: How to use Link Whisper to build internal links in WordPress?
In the next few minutes, we will show you exactly how we build internal links using Link Whisper plugin. To be honest, it is really easy and we actually got hooked up with it every day (more on this later).
This sample includes blog posts found in WP Maven (yes, that's our site—THIS site). We decided that the best way to provide an excellent review is by showing some real-life examples.
Let's get started with the Link Whisper review 2020!
Link Whisper is a powerful WordPress SEO plugin. We recommend you to follow strict SEo guidelines to avoid over optimization, which can be bad for SEO.
Step 1: Install Link Whisper plugin to WordPress
The first step is pretty straightforward. You would need an active license for Link Whisper before you are able to use it. You can get a limited-time $25 Link Whisper discount code here.
This is required right after you install the WordPress plugin.
Step 2: Link Whisper dashboard
After install Link Whisper, we recommend you to head over wp-admin dashboard » Link Whisper » Report.
Take a look at the screenshot. That's exactly what you will find when you click on the dashboard.
It shows you an overall snipper on your website internal and outbound link structure.
On the side, we are pretty happy with the Orphaned Posts, Broken Links and 404 errors because these are very important ones for us to take a look at—especially when it comes to WordPress SEO.
Step 3: Link Whisper Links Report tab
Now, it is all about fixing blog posts that have no internal links linking to it. Internal links help to boost and share link authority (a.k.a. link juice). Therefore, you want to make sure every post and page has internal linking to them.
Here, you will be able to add internal links directly to the blog post without having to edit the post.
Start by clicking on the Add button. This will open up a new tab in your browser.
Here's how it looks like.
Link Whisper will automatically provide suggestions for both related posts and hyperlink text for internal linking.
All you need to do is to run through the suggestions, tick on the chosen ones and click on Add Links.
Within seconds, all the links will be added to your blog posts.
Auto-linking with Link Whisper
Apart from the automatic internal link building feature, you can also perform auto-linking in your WordPress site.
Auto-linking has several features, including adding relevant links to a blog post or page when triggered by a keyword.
If you are wondering, this is the same feature that is found within Pretty Links Pro.
Link Whisper auto-linking feature also comes with two important options.
- Add link if post already has this link. Enabling this option will lead to the blog post having similar interlinking but with different hypertext.
- Only link once per post. This option allows you to only add one link per post.
For this Link Whisper review, we recommend you to disable the first option and only enable the second option for safer SEO practises.
URL changer with Link Whisper
Last but not least, URL changer is similar to redirection in SEOPress. This option allows you to create a redirection from an old URL to a new URL. The only downside with this is the inability to control 301, 302 or 307 redirection.
How much does Link Whisper costs?
For a limited time, Link Whisper is on sale. Purchasing Link Whisper plugin this week will get you a nice $25 discount.
Summary: Is Link Whisper worth the money?
At first, we were skeptical of what Link Whisper could do for us but after trying out ourselves, we are very happy with it. As a matter of fact, we use Link Whisper to help our WordPress clients in internal link building structure.
For only $52 for a WordPress site, this is definitely worth the money and we can't recommend Link Whisper enough!
