      You must customize the blog post URL, if you have the option to widen the reach, it works miraculously. Second, you might use the content curation ways, where you can refer to the quality articles of other people to gain their attention as they would be reciprocating you in the similar way.

      I agree with you, linking your blog’s posts to one another will provide readers with access to your content which otherwise some of them won’t have known if such content exist. However, you should link your blog post to one another that contain relevant content.
