So you have a WordPress blog, made some updates, but you’re hungry for additional traffic. You put out unique stuff, consistency, I’ll guess.
A lot can be done for increased traffic, however, one of the initial things to do is to refine your search engine blog. You won’t get plenty of traffic, at least not the free kind, if the search engines don’t consider your site. Here are 8 suggestions for optimizing your SEO WordPress page.
Your Main Keyword
It is critical, as you can see in the remaining post, to have the main keywords that you follow. This is the keyword on which you want your blog’s homepage to rank. Research on keywords.
You should add it in your title, heading, and backlink anchor text until your keyword has been determined. The earlier the keyword in a heading, permalink, or text copy appears, the better as a generally-specific theory.
For any new blog post and the page you make, you can also study keywords, but normally you need to go after fewer competitive keywords than the main keyword of your blog.
Make sure that the keyword is shown in the first and final paragraph of each blog title, permanent relation and, if possible, two or three times in the post body. The quicker again you will get the title keyword, the better permanent link and the better body.
Tags for the title
Perhaps the most critical thing in the title tag on-site, you leave a lot of traffic on the table, if you don’t have that right. Title tags are best practice to include the brand name + 1 or 2 MAIN keywords on the Website.
I wish you knew what your blog’s keywords were. If not go find your niche now with some nice keywords! (I did a video in the earliest blog post that you might print out of Free SEO Keyword Research.)
The brand or blog name should be left out of the title tag. It will help to marginally improve your classifications, but keeping it in will help create your brand, and that will be up to you. If you have the website/blog name in the domain name.
Search engines have a cap on titles on what is on the results list of search engines. Each search engine has several limits but it is under the character limit of the major search engines that the title tag is held in less than 65 characters with space.
Keywords and Meta Tags
Meta Description and Keyword Tags were once really relevant for the rankings of the search engine. However, today they don’t have any effect on the ranking and Google has publicly declared that it takes no account of the meta keywords.
However, for another explanation, the meta description remains relevant. If your blog is on the search engines, a snippet that is your meta description will be highlighted. A very well-written meta description does not impact the grading of the search engine.
Besides the meta Keyword Tag, it’s not harmful to use (unless you use the keywords), and it can still be important for smaller search engines.
The URL for an article is a Permalink. The standard WordPress permalinks don’t benefit you at all because they are EXAMPLEURL/?p=10 or anything close that is not attractive at all and didn’t improve you in the ranks or in the eyes of the searcher.
Instead, adjust the form of the permalink to show what the post really is.
This can be done in Settings >> Permalinks and then adjust to / percent post name percentage /
The title of your blog post is now included as a permalink anytime you make a new post. If you have a keyword for the title, it will also show in the permanent connection, which increases the rating of search engines.
If the title is long, make sure the permalink is shortened. For eg, I don’t give a very good permalink, nor does http:// make very great an EXAMPLEURL/what-should-i-have-for-dine-tonight-i-feel-like-past-but-they-a-lot-of-carbs-people-would have-a-salad-which, I acknowledge, is an extreme example. You’re going to get the idea.
An alternate text, normally for a picture, will be seen in a tribute. This may be because a picture does not appear, for a text browser or for readers with visual impairment. However, alt attributes will also support you in the ranks of search engines, not only for the image segment.
WordPress dynamically assigns alt attributes to images depending on the name of the file. For example, if a picture is labelled ‘the-stig.jpg,’ the alternative text is ‘the-stig,’ or if it is truthful to say who doesn’t like the stage?
Whenever you add a picture to your blog, make sure to name it for the article or website (a keyword for example).
Certainly, this is something I haven’t done before. Links to a certain article or article on your blog are mostly connected. Do this only if it’s applicable to what you refer to. I mentioned an example of this above when I connected to a video I did in keyword analysis because it was important.
Building a blog is a long-term phase to be considered. You can add even more SEO strategies to your site, but these 7 are among the key ways to refine your WordPress SEO blog and start you to traffic with a major search engine.
