What are SEO essentials when it comes to publishing a new WordPress Page or Post? There are some basic things you can do to make sure your new page or post is set up for the Google crawler to understand what the page is about, and boost your chances for ranking highly for your search term.


Watch the video below to learn these essentials:

Here are a few highlights from the video:

  • Decide on the keyword phrase that you will optimize the page for
  • Choose a compelling title with the keyword phrase in it
  • Use headers containing the keyword phrase
  • Include an image, and associate ALT and TITLE tags
  • Body text, use bold for phrase
  • Specific Title Tag and Meta Description
  • Internal linking to other pages

I’ll show you how to do all of these in the video.

Hi. I treasured to drop you a quick note to express my thank you. I’ve been observing your weblog for a month or so and have plucked up a heap of sound information as well as enjoyed the way you’ve structured your article. I am setting about to run my own web site however I think its too general and I would like to focus more on smaller topics.
