Internal Linking and Pagination for Blog Articles using our Static Generator

As our website grows and more and more articles are written, it becomes necessary to implement pagination to avoid long loading times, excessive images, and other factors that can slow down our website. In this article, we'll discuss how to use internal linking and pagination to improve the performance of our website.

Internal Linking

Internal linking is the process of linking to other pages within our own website. This helps to create a hierarchy of pages and articles, making it easier for search engines to crawl and index our website. It also provides a better user experience by allowing readers to easily navigate to related content.

To implement internal linking, we need to first identify related articles and pages within our website. We can do this by analyzing the content of each page and article, looking for common themes and topics. Once we have identified related content, we can then add internal links within the content, pointing to other relevant pages and articles.

For example, if we have an article about "10 Tips for Writing Better Blog Posts", we can include internal links to other articles we have written on related topics such as "How to Come Up with Blog Post Ideas" or "How to Optimize Your Blog for Search Engines".


Pagination is the process of dividing a long list of items into multiple pages. This helps to improve website performance by reducing the amount of content that needs to be loaded at once. It also provides a better user experience by allowing readers to easily navigate to specific pages within a long list of content.

To implement pagination, we need to first determine how many items we want to display per page. This will depend on the type of content and the preferences of our audience. For example, if we have a blog with long-form articles that include many images, we may want to limit the number of articles per page to three or four to ensure that the page loads quickly.

Once we have determined the number of items per page, we can then implement pagination using our static generator. Our static generator will automatically generate a new page for each set of items, with links to the previous and next pages. We can then add these links to our website navigation or include them at the bottom of each page.


In conclusion, internal linking and pagination are two important strategies for improving the performance and user experience of our website. By implementing these strategies, we can make it easier for search engines to crawl and index our website, provide a better user experience for our readers, and ensure that our website loads quickly and efficiently.

By following the steps outlined in this article, we can implement these strategies using our static generator, and ensure that our website continues to grow and evolve in a way that meets the needs of our audience.
