SEO is a continuous process, and it is done at many levels. I use WordPress as a forum for blogging, and we all know that WordPress is not suited for SEO by default, however, there are easy solutions that make a WordPress blog search engine friendly. However, you can not get a search engine friendly website with the help of plugins, because there are many factors that help in the proper SEO optimization of the website.
Today, I’m sharing some tips and ideas, which I use to make SEO friendly website.
I learned many new SEO tips, and by reading your first article you can learn some of them how to overcome Panda effect. Returning to the topic, SEO occurs at three levels at the main level:
On page SEO
On Site SEO
On page SEO and Site SEO, there are some things that can be kept in mind with anyone with SEO knowledge, and most of them can be obtained with the help of plugins. When I started blog, I never considered SEO optimization. After some time, I started reading about SEO and understood that SEO plays a major role in running traffic. Even your blog has more than 10,000 subscribers, but after some time, organic traffic (traffic from search engines) will be your blog’s main traffic source. We get around many unique trips everyday and most of the traffic is from search engines.
I will explain the whole process below, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask me through comments:
SEO starts at Content Level:
First and foremost your content is real SEO, every month before month, I keep content strategy for the whole month, and it starts by researching keywords. I analyze some sites in similar places, and select keywords that are the best fit for viewers. I use tools like Google Adword Keyword Tool, SEMRUSH to find all such content Ubersuggest one more Easy SEO tool, which helps me get more ideas.
Keywords play a major role in search engine optimization and should always optimize their blog title, description and keyword tag.
Once I have ideas for content with me, then it is time to write content, which is not only quality article but also targeted for certain keywords. I seek the help of SEOPressor plugin, which gives me the content for targeted keywords Optimizes. This plugin also provides LSI keyword feature, which helps me improve the SEO score of my article.
To add SEO details like meta title, meta description, you can use the WordPress SEO by Yoast.
I started using thesis wordpress theme and I threw WordPress SEO through the theme. The theme is already SEO optimized and includes robot META tags, control site nofollow and dofollw and many other types of SEO.
For images, I plugin to add image ALT tags using SEO-friendly images, and SMUSH.it plugin to reduce the size of my images.
Keyword optimization plays a great role in getting traffic from search engines and has a better ranking in search results.
When I was new to WordPress, I was unaware of the use of categories, and I started using descriptive categories for many categories and every post. Another major mistake I made with categories: Using more than 1 category for a single post. This increased the chance of post duplication. After feeling the importance of the class, I changed my permalinks and started using one category per post. I have started using relevant tags to show related articles effectively.
Although I have already made mistakes by putting more than one category for a post, and the best way to get out of it is making Noindex my categories, I have added the codex in my category and tag archive. Apart from this, other archives such as date based collections, author archives. Another useful piece of stuff that I have come to know recently is using anchor text to link back to your article.
Internal links with anchor text is a good strategy and I use the Insights WordPress Plugin to quickly add your blog posts. You can use Google analytics to check your keywords for most pages.
