Interlinking is the act of linking to other pages inside your website. This gives you a really easy opportunity to create a strong backlink to another page which you are trying to optimize for the search engines.
While you certainly can and should link to other internal pages inside of your post or page content, there are other ways as well. Interlinking can also refer to the links to your categories in your sidebar, links to your pages in your navigation, a similar posts listing after your content, etc.
