This will result in your page showing up in search results on the web, as well as in image search.

10.  Internal Linking:

While external linking is important and widely used, you need to create anchor text within the content of your website for internal linking. This means that you are giving links in a particular page of your website to another page of the same website, helping in easy navigation. Anchor text should support this internal linking, for exampleinstead of writing click here for a wide range of beauty products, you can write this website offers a wide range of beauty products and provide an internal link on beauty products.
