Everybody knows that internal linking is good for SEO. It is also good for user experience because it helps the user relate to what is being talked about in a specific article. Ever since WordPress 3.1 introduced internal linking, like many others we have found ourselves linking to our previous posts a lot more than we used to. You wouldn’t think that this would become a problem until you notice a whole lot of self pings to your own site. Some folks really like this default feature of WordPress because it lets their users keep track of related posts in the comment. For others like ourselves, this becomes a issue because we believe it clutters our comment area.
