Internal Linking

Unlock the power of internal links

Internal Linking is an AI-driven feature

While we strive to ensure that internal links are as accurate as possible, this is still an AI-driven feature and can still experience some hallucinations and inaccuracies.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the internal links are correct - you should always be checking and vetting every article you generate.

Machined will automatically interlink the articles in each cluster.

Machined's AI will intelligently interweave keyword-centric links into the natural text within each article. What this means is that your articles will be written with natural-sounding but keyword-targeted links to the other articles in your cluster.

Internal links are added to the HTML as relative links, so should automatically work on your website assuming the articles are published side-by-side.

For example, assuming your website is - when published the browser will show these links as on the actual website.

We are working on a feature to allow you to create absolute links, you can track the progress here.

Avoiding broken links

If you publish all of the articles at the same time, all the internal links will work as expected. However, if you are planning to publish articles slowly over time, you should take care to avoid broken links. As you publish each article, remember to remove links to articles that haven't been published yet.

Disabling Internal Linking

There may be times when you don't want articles interlinked, for example if you intend to use an external tool instead.

To disable interlinking, set Interlinking to Disabled in the cluster before writing articles.

By default, the platform will purposely create more internal links than you need. The intention is to give you and your team the opportunity to remove the internal links that are not needed during the editing process - at the end of the day, removing links is way easier than adding them.

However, if manually curating internal links is not something you want to do, you can instruct our writer to prevent duplicate internal links within the same article.

By enabling this option we will make sure that you only have unique links in your article, you will still have multiple links but you won't see the same article linked to more than once.

Please note that this is a post-processing feature, so it will remove links that the AI has already added to the article. There is no extra cost for this, but the caveat is that some text might appear unnatural - ie "Please visit our article on walking dogs in the rain" but there is no link...
