So one more time i am fighting with SEO for WordPress. This time i hope to see some traffic increase on my websites. First off all let me show you what i found and start using for my sites.
First post is the best i think.. it has old date in url (2005-11) but it show many base SEO tricks.
Ultimate WordPress SEO Tips
What i take for my websites from it. The new best URL permalink for WordPress is: /%category%/%postname%/
I use this for SilenBits, see the URL of this post.
You must know what you are doing, read this:
Stick with the structure you choose! Changing it will probably invalidate all of the links coming to you.
.. and i’ve changed the permalinks structure but i use plugin that redirect old posts to new one.
See this for example:
click on this link http://silentbits.com/2006/06/26/top-plugins-for-wordpress/ and it will redirect you to -> http://silentbits.com/wordpress/top-plugins-for-wordpress/.
Next hack i use from this post is the Page Titles part.
I switch my page titles, i move Â· SilentBits to the end. I think this is good because the main keywords are first now (for Google).
BUT in my opinion i can’t do this if i have good domain that is related with topic , Google index sites with domains also so if the domain is StupidExample.com and you are writing about StupidExample, Example you put this in front. I must say that this one is from me, i am not a SEO expert so maybe i am wrong.
Another thing that i need to put in all my sites are H1, H2, H3 tags in titles..
On pages where a list of posts appear (like the front page), wrap the title in H2, H3 or H4 tags. This provides maximum superiority of linkage without going too far. Which ones you use depend on how many posts the page is showing (lower number of posts, opt for H2â€¦).
On the post page, wrap it in H1 tags! Itâ€™s the page title, so it deserves to be wrapped up like that! Youâ€™ll benefit greatly from this when it comes to the search engines.
SEO mad! If youâ€™re capable of bending WordPress to your will, try putting a link to your newest post in H1 tags on your front page! It works wonders!
I don’t really know how to make this last tip to work with WordPress, newest post in H1… maybe I need to google more about it.
If the tricks that i post here are too simple for you and you see this on every blogs on internet i got special one for you.
WordPress SEO Masterclass For Competitive Niches
Post is very interesting form the beginning but i want to show you this special part. I am talking about Advanced SEO & Presentation
… and i am not sure about this one and for now i am not using it on my blog. To simple understood what it is talking about see this image.
So the main ides is to put your blog title and post titles in first place. I don’t get it good because, for example i have many categories links indexed in Google, i don’t know how the process of index this categories looks but i am afraid about this method.
If you have any questions, maybe your SEO methods, links let me know by comments.
