As the title depicts, I'm confused to keep the content entirely Bold including internal links, I'd had done thorough research but haven't found any kind of good answers whether to keep the content bold or not? I know its good to keep the important keywords bold but does it makes a difference in between entire content or some important keywords.
Please suggest does this affects of our SERP.
I had made the entire content bold and if possible please suggest some useful links.

Hello dyna, welcome to the Forums. Having all the content on a site presented in bold text is a little unusual. Bold is intended to signify important parts of the content that you wish to emphasize. So I am wondering why the decision was made to display all content as bold text? It would seem that might confuse a crawler that is trying to determine what the important content is. The only link I can suggest regarding whether it might affect your site's SERP is to review Google's Webmaster Guidelines: [support.google.com...] and be sure you are giving your visitors a good experience.
Putting the entire page in boldface is not going to make the search engine say "Wow! This content is way more important than everything else we've crawled today."
If you're looking for a particular visual effect, look at different fonts. Some sans-serif families in particular come across as very heavy. But please, for your readers' sake, don't do this in large blocks of body text.

It's not a good practice to make everything bold and there's also a chance that it will confuse your viewer. If you are worried about your users not being able to read the text, there's a way to make the text bigger in a click of a button but i'm not sure how to do that.
