A Few Wordpress Tips For a Better SEO

You don’t expect this post to start with why a good SEO require a blog, do you? If you hadn’t known that, you wouldn’t be here, after all. Agreed upon the point that an effective optimisation of your search engine requires a relevant and informative blog, lets check out what are some tips that can help create a good blog in Wordpress, one of the most prominent blog website used currently.

By default, Wordpress offers a search engine friendly atmosphere and scope for edits that can make your SEO better and easier. So what are the steps that you can take to enhance your blogs to suit your SEO?

1.Find an SEO friendly theme for your blog.

2.Do not add to many images. If you need to add add images of your logo or banner as far as possible. Provide alt tags for each logo and banner and try to reduce their code size and bytes.

3.Create an archive section to your theme as new visitors would like to read some of your older posts.

4.Adding a “Recent posts” to the blog lets your visitors find the latest posts easily without spending time checking the dates and opening the posts.

5.Give the option for the visitors to subscribe to your post. This will send them an email to them automatically each time you add a new post. You can also use pinging that can let others know when you have added a new post or edited any existing one. However, reduce the after post edits to avoid sending pings too often.


6.Create a sitemap.xml file to Google and Yahoo webmaster tool. This will make the spiders of Google and Yahoo crawl your URL regularly.

7.Make sure that you have enabled the comments option. Comments can help in many ways, especially to get the feedback of the visitors. Of course, there might be comments that you wouldn’t want other visitors to see. But it’s a small cost to get some real good reviews and comments from happy visitors.

8.Stick to your topic. Some blogs would have posts about almost every other thing under the sun. You might be confusing the search engines with these posts on different topics as to what exactly you want to talk about. Your visitors would also be annoyed with this inconsistency in topic.

9.If you have multiple URLs to your blog, get the latest version of Wordpress that can point the search engines to a single URL. This avoids issues like content duplication, splitting of page rank and the confusion and eventually desertion of search engines.

10.Use header tags correctly.

11.Create right and apt titles for blog posts. Make sure you have action words in them to get the attention of the visitors. Also, insert your keywords as many as possible to get the attention of the search engines.

12.Integrate social networking media into the blog. Links to some of the prominent social networking sites can add more visitors and feedback. However, as you have noticed already most of the blogs now have links to such websites like Myspace, Facebook, Linkedin, etc.

13.Publish content frequently. When you add content regularly it gives you credibility in the eyes of search engines. Human visitors also start visiting your blogs frequently when you add content often.

14.Post content that is original, keyword-rich as well as relevant. Just inserting some content you found in any other website or some text just to fill the gap is not going to help in any way. Make sure that each post is worth reading and can bring enough feedback.

15.Use permalinks that contain the keywords instead of some strange numbers. Also, try not to put the blog posts in deep directories that reduce their relevance from the point of view of search engines.

Hope this post was helpful for you to add effective post for your blogs and help your search engine optimisation. The purpose of the post is done if you could find a new strategy to win the attention of search engines and visitors.
