2. Title tag seo benifits

Use title tag attribute, it provides an additional information about a link and also it will show in the browser’s tooltip for readers.

3.Specify target for External and Internal links

You can specify the target frame, where the link should be open. The default value for link target is _self, it opens in the same tab or window, which is preferred for internal links. For external, better to use target _blank. This will open the link in a new tab, so that the users are not taken away from your website.

Possible values for target are,

_blank- open link in a new tab or window

_Self- open link in the same tab or window

_parent- open link in the parent frame.

_top-open link in the new window.

4.When to use nofollow (href rel nofollow)

-External links to low quality pages.

-Paid links should be nofollow to prevent being penalized by Google

-Generally should  allow nofollow links for comments.

-Duplicate links to the same document as nofollow.

5.Anchor tag

Do not leave the anchor tag empty.

Provide relevant keywords in the anchor tag.
