If you have a website on 10 pages, and you have to put links to the new page by the only the anchor — it can be done and hands for 15 minutes. But what if you need to relink the site to 750 pages, and the linking must be through the three clusters of queries?

Let us consider the example: you need to from all pages of the website, which refer to “Blinds in the bedroom”, to put a link to a page about “Sewing curtains for the bedroom custom”. You have a website for 750 pages, and the search will take a lot of time and even more time will be spent on placing links.

To solve such problems, we developed a special plugin for WordPress site — WP-MFC Linkator. About it we will talk today.

General view of the plugin before you start:

In the “Enter phrase to search for” insert the word or phrase on which we will be searching for.

The plugin takes into account the morphology of Russian language (which is its unique feature compared to similar developments of their Western colleagues), so in a phrase search it is better to introduce the basics of word endings to find all versions of the word forms.

For this purpose, the second field “Additional words”, where you can specify adjectives, prepositions, labeling, and so on.

A list of record types is necessary in order to indicate whether to search or not to search a text entry for a phrase, for example, in pages. This is useful for projects that have a large number of individual record types are implemented using custom fields (Custom fields), you can immediately select the desired record type. By default, all database tables that the plugin evaluates the potential options for finding information.

In the “Page URL to insert” we specify the address of the page or write that we will put a link.

The total list of found pages as follows:

In order to put a link on a specific page, click on the “Edit” button. If the button is an indication of link (as in the example above), this means that this page already posted the link to the page that we chose to relink.

Affixing links

When you click on the “Edit” link you get to a page that will act as the donor (which contains link).

For convenience and speed of work are implemented the following things:

  • The query itself is highlighted
  • On the right is a block with navigation and scrolling on such blocks inside of the article and the “Save” button. This allows you to quickly find the most successful block of text where the link will look more natural, and place it exactly there:

Please note that each block has its own text editor. This is to ensure that you could quickly make changes to the text (change the end, to dilute the anchor, to change the word order and so on). This enables the linking as natural as possible from the point of view of style and morphology of the language, in addition, it easily allows to diversify the pool of anchor occurrences, in order to avoid paraspara key.

In order to put a link, you need the mouse to highlight a specific part of the text (the desired phrase or word) and simply click the link:
