How to update your internal links
There are several ways you can update internal links on your website without the help of a developer:
- Use a link update tool: Some content management systems (CMSs) and SEO plugins offer tools that allow you to easily update internal links. For example, the Yoast SEO plugin for WordPress has a feature that allows you to bulk edit the links in your content.
- Use a search and replace tool: If you are using a CMS that doesn’t have a built-in link update tool, you can use a search and replace tool to update the links. There are several tools available that allow you to search for specific strings of text and replace them with new ones, such as Better Search Replace for WordPress.
- Manually update the links: If you don’t have access to a tool or if you prefer to do it manually, you can update the links by editing the content on your website and replacing the old links with the new ones. This may be a time-consuming process, but it can be a good option if you only have a small number of internal links to update.
By updating your internal links, you can ensure that your website’s navigation is working correctly and that search engines can easily crawl and index your pages. This will help preserve your search engine rankings and user traffic during the migration process.
