Four Simple SEO Tips And A Great WordPress Plugin
Simple SEO are not normally words associated together, let alone in the same sentence.
Trying to figure out SEO, especially if you are new to blogging, WordPress, or a new business owner putting together a website can be a daunting task.
There is a great plugin which is very effective in tracking your SEO as you create your post, although not one of the thousands of free plugins available, it can purchased for a reasonable price. It’s called SEO Pressor.
This plugin, once installed on your WP blog will show you a score and percentage of how your well that particular post scores for SEO. It tracks Keyword Density,(do you have enough keywords listed) H1-H3 tags, as well if you have an ALT tag set. It will also automatically italicize one keyword and underline one keyword in that article. It has been a major help with my blog’s SEO. Prior to using this plugin my scores were all well below 20%, now I am in the 80% to 90% range.
I would like to cover 4 Simple SEO steps that you should take when setting up your blog post. These will definitely help with your Google ranking.
1. Choosing Proper Keywords
Keywords are the core to simple SEO optimization. When people are searching the internet for a specific subject, keywords, terms and phrases are what is used.
The more specific the keyword, the better. For example, if your website is about Real Estate, you don’t want your main keyword to just be Real Estate. That is far too broad of a term. There are thousands if not hundreds of thousand of websites that use the same keyword. Your competition will be stiff, never allowing you to rank on the first page of Google. A more specific keyword would be “Phoenix Arizona Real Estate”.
You need to figure out what makes your business unique and go after keywords based upon that. By narrowing down your keyword it will help those looking to buy a home in Phoenix easier to find you. You will ultimately rank higher in the search results.
Remember using a simple SEO tactic such as this can help land you in the top 10 results.
2. Use your primary keyword in the title of your post.
If your primary keyword is Simple SEO, then that term should be the first 3 or 4 words used in the title. For example, you wouldn’t want your headline to read:
WordPress Blog Tips For Simple SEO Results. A better headline would be: Simple SEO Tips For Your WordPress Blog To Gain Higher Search Results.
3. Title Tags
Along with having your keyword in the title, you need to have H1, H2 H3 tags in each of your posts. There is a video link listed below that will show you how to achieve that.
It’s important to gain as many backlinks from other websites as possible because that helps to build your page-rank. The more of these backlinks you have, the higher your blog will be ranked. Especially if you are linked to more popular web sites that have a large amount of traffic. It’s like a seal of approval and tells the search engines, hey, this must be important because of all the links going back to it.
Deep linking is another important step. Deep linking involves placing links within your article that link directly back to the static pages of your website. Examples of static pages on your site would be:
Your About Page, Training Page, Resources Page, etc. Any page on your site that does not change. It is best to link to any of these pages, but not back to just your Home Page. These are deep links and Google loves to see deep and backlinks. They will reward you for it. As long as the link is relevant to your article, you should place one of each in your posts.
My intent here wasn’t to layout everything regarding SEO, but to give you some basic information on some simple SEO tips. The main purpose of this article was to make you aware of this great plugin which has been a huge help to me in setting up my SEO.
