What are resource pages?
Resource pages are pages on a website that contain links to other websites. These links are usually related to the topic of the resource page. For example, a resource page about SEO might contain links to articles about keyword research, link building, and so on.
What’s the purpose of a resource page?
The purpose of a resource page is twofold: first, to provide visitors with a list of useful resources on a particular topic; and second, to improve the search engine optimization (SEO) of the website by providing Google with more opportunities to index the website’s content.
How can you create a resource page for your website?
Creating a resource page for your website is relatively simple. First, decide what topic you want your resource page to be about. Then, find websites that have resources related to that topic. Finally, add links to those resources on your website.
Resource pages are a great way to improve the SEO of your website and to provide visitors with a list of useful resources on a particular topic. If you don’t have a resource page on your website, I encourage you to create one today!
