How do I get good SEO?
You worked so hard to set up your website, secure it, and write great content and it’s time to try to do well in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). Luckily, WordPress has plugins that have made this much easier. The best of the best (in my opinion) is Yoast SEO. Yoast SEO is probably one of the most option rich SEO plugins, but, (for many) it’s too hard to use. Because of this, people often give up and don’t use it at all.
So, I defer to my 2nd favorite SEO Plugin which is All In One SEO. It’s easier to use and I have found (with my clients at least) that they tend to keep it up and use it. All in One SEO just requires the user to input data in a few fields. Over the years, All In One SEO has become more feature rich including cool add-ons like an XML Sitemap generator, a Bad Bot Blocker, and a Robots.txt validater to name a few. Check out the video for a step by step walk through and more info on All in one SEO.
Regardless of which one you choose, make sure to install a good SEO plugin on your site and use it to optimize ALL the pages and posts on your site, and don’t forget your home page!
