Working WordPress to SEO Advantage
The final steps to making your blog SEO friendly
One of the final steps to making your blog SEO friendly is to use WordPress tools to push that blog over the edge. In this article, Linda shows you how to get that WordPress SEO advantage.
Tips on SEO Performance
At this point, you should have the following guidelines in place for your blog:
- An overall theme that doesn't stray (such as education, sports, arts, etc.)
- A sub-theme that allows you to specify your interests (such as higher education, snowboarding or photography)
- Content that fills the pages in your blog (such as "about," "editor's page," etc.)
- Content for your blog entries...a calendar, perhaps, that would provide you with a list of ideas for writing topics
- Correct grammar in your easy-to-read blog entries
- Subheads, lists and keywords and key phrases
What else do you need? If you want to spend a little extra time after you write that blog entry to fine-tune your SEO, this is the time to do it...after that blog entry has been written and before you publish it. That's what I'll cover here today.
Beyond this, the only other actions you might pursue are to push your blog into the public eye through PR and social media.
While WordPress (WP) cannot push your blog for you, it can provide you with some tools that can help your blog become noticed. Working in the dashboard and in the actual blog entry, I'll show you some tricks and tools that can make this job easy for you.
Linda Goin carries an A.A. in graphic design, a B.F.A. in visual communications with a minor in business and marketing and an M.A. in American History with a minor in the Reformation. While the latter degree doesn't seem to fit with the first two educational experiences, Linda used her 25-year design expertise on archaeological digs and in the study of material culture. Now she uses her education and experiences in social media experiments.
Accolades for her work include fifteen first-place Colorado Press Association awards, numerous fine art and graphic design awards, and interviews about content development with The Wall St. Journal, Chicago Tribune, Psychology Today, and L.A. Times.
