    Internal links only point within your own specific website or domain.
    External Links are hyperlinks that point at (target) any domain other than the domain the link exists on (source).

    Internal link: Link that is in your website pointing on another page of your website. Like a contact page link in the menu.
    External Link: Link on another website that points to your website.

    Internal links only point within your own specific website or domain. Links from pages on your site to your contact page are another simple example of internal links.

    External Links are hyperlinks that point at (target) any domain other than the domain the link exists on (source). In layman's terms, if another website links to you, this is considered an external link to your site. if you link out to another website, this is also considered an external link.

    Generally, a link to a page outside the same domain or website is considered external, whereas one that points at another section of the same webpage or to another page of the same website or domain is considered internal.

    Here's a definition that clarifies the difference between internal and external links: Internal links point toward webpages within a website domain. External links point to web pages on a separate website domain

    Internal links are links that reference other pages on your site, while external links are any links that point away from your domain. External links to your website are one of the biggest factors in the discovery and search engine ranking of your website.
