In-Linking doesn’t mean, linking to every random page , but it should link to relevant pages. A tool which can help is publishing related posts using Yet Another Relates Posts Plugin (YARRP). Other than that you should make a habit to link articles to particular keywords for example If I have an article on social media icons and If I am targeting the Keword “Icons” then I will link to the article whenever I use the keyword “Icons” in any post.
