Can I add internal link from cornerstone page to other pages?
Based on Yoast, one should add internal links from other pages to the cornerstone page.
Then is it OK to add internal links from the cornerstone page to others? Will it lose the importance due to add such links.
If the link is relevant and it's helpful for your visitors, just do it. Internal linking is a great way to enlarge your visitors dwell time. A lot of SEOs believe that Google does use dwell time as a ranking factor. It shows that your content is relevant to the search query. So it might give you, in time, a better result in the SERP.
Thank you very much.
