Effectively, you are casting a vote on your own article by linking it back from other posts. Therefore, this increases the chances of obtaining backlinks on your other pages of the blog and not just the homepage. At the same time, there are many other advantages of doing internal linking.
4 Advantages Of Internal Linking

When you do internal linking, you could actually dig out your older quality articles and provide value to your new readers. Most people are lazy to browse through your archive section and might miss out on posts of similar topic. Therefore, with internal linking, you make the life easier for your viewers. You have spend time to type out the articles so do no neglect the older articles and let your readers have more content to read.
2) Increase page view
We have to try to understand the mindset of internet users and try to optimize our blogs to get the best results. I have experimented with internal linking and it does increase the number of page views quite significantly. The reason for this is because the readers are looking for more information on a particular topic and by doing internal linking to olders articles of relevant content will improve the number of page views.
You often will see blogs that put up their more popular articles at their homepage to attract attention and get readers to read on them. This is also another way of internal linking which leads to increase page views and backlinks.
3) Increase Page Rank
When you do internal linking, some of the PR juice on your homepages will be link to your other pages which will in turn gain some nice PR as well. Although PR is not very significant for many bloggers, I do still recommend you to obtain a nice PR rank if your focus is on doing reviews as well as placement of text links. These are good ways to monetize your blog.
4) Improve SEOs
One of the ways to improve SEOs are through building backlinks. Therefore, internal linking is also a way to build backlinks for your other pages on your blog. This will allow the older articles on your blog to still rank reasonably well on the SERPs should you work on the internal linking of articles. This will also increase your organic traffic over time.
