Yes, I know. Wondering what I know? Oh sorry, I know that WordPress blog automatically bit search engine friendly than another platform. You may again wonder so why you are writing this post if WordPress already SEO friendly? Right? Well, let me explain. Yes, WordPress SEO friendly but don’t you want to make your blog more and more search engine friendly with very little works. I am sure you want to. Ok, let’s go…
Use the title tag carefully: Title tag is one of the most important factors for search engine optimization. Title tag normally tells the search engine what’s your site all about. Most of the people out there use their brand name or blog name here. But I usually prefer to use your top keyword here. Suppose your site name is blog one and you want to get rank for the keyword “make money online”. So your site title tag should be like Make money online: Blog zone. To change your blog’s title tag you may use all in one SEO plugin.
Meta tag: Many people may argue about Meta tag that it’s not important anymore because google doesn’t count Meta tag anymore. But I still think the Meta tag plays a vital role even though Google doesn’t care about it. But you also should keep in mind that Google is the biggest but not an only search engine and another search engine still count Meta tag. And Meta tag gives your search visitor a brief about your site.
Internal linking: Internal linking is one of the best on-site SEO factors that affect your search engine ranking. Simple internal linking is linking one post to others in a blog post. Suppose you are writing a post on page rank and previously you wrote a post on the backlink. So in page rank post, you may want to give your reader a link back to your link building post. This will not only help SEO but also will help your reader to read more. But one thing keeps in mind while linking your post to use the keyword as your anchor text. I see many bloggers who link with the work click here. They write like this….
“To know more about link building click here”. Here they used click here as anchor what’s not recommended. I always recommend using your anchor text here.
Permalinks structure: Permalinks are your post URL’s structure. It’s very important to make your URL’s structure search engine friendly. Your default post URL looks like https://dailyblogscoop.com/page/3/ etc. But it’s better to make your post like https://dailyblogscoop.com/link-velocity-secret-techniques-of-seo/. This will tell the search engines what your post is all about. You may change your permalinks from settings Permalinks – custom – the structure and add /%postname%/
Alt tag: Do you know lots of people use to find any information by image search? I am sure you use lots of images in your blog. But do you always use an altered tag for your image? There are lots of people out there who don’t care too much of alt tag. But that’s not wise at all. Whenever you will add an image in your post make sure you used your keyword as your alt tag. This will boost your rank in image search.
I hope you will make your blog more SEO friendly by applying those tips.
