I am assisting a friend with a blog on WordPress. In his blog articles he is putting in URL's but since he is writing the blog in the visual portion of the editor it is not automatically adding anchor tags. To make them an URL you have to go to the text section of the editor and click on the link button and add the details there.
So that I can advise him, is there other than the benefit to the ease of use an SEO benefit to making these clickable links? I assume yes but have never even thought of this to dig deeper into the subject.
