Number of internal links in content
With the PublishPress Checklists plugin, you can require a maximum and minimum number of internal links in your WordPress content. If the content does not have the correct number of internal links, you can choose to show a warning, or prevent the post from being published.
We define “internal links” as any
a href link to another page on your site.
Many sites want a large number of internal links because it can improve their site's search engine optimization.
