WordPress is one of the best blogging and web development tool available today. Here are a few SEO tricks you can use on WordPress which would help your website be on top in search engine results.
1. Not Installing a Caching Plug-In:
A good number of novice bloggers fail to install a caching plug-in because they are not aware that the speed on one’s website is a big determinant of how a site is ranked in Google. A caching plug-in together with a Content Delivery Network (CDN) are necessary resources that ensure that your site can sustain lots of traffic at one time without crashing. You will lose visitors on your website if it keeps crashing.
2. Using the Default Permalink Structure
The WordPress default permalink structure looks like www.yoursite.com/?p=123 doesn’t have an unappealing look and is not good for SEO. A blogger who does not change this permalink to make it more search-engine friendly, risk not getting high Google ranking. He also looks unprofessional to readers. After installing your WordPress, do not forget to change this permalink.
3. Poor Internal Linking
The way one page links to another on your website is crucial as it is important for both SEO and also keeps your visitors longer on your page. Inserting related pages can be done manually or automatically using SEO Smart Links Plugins. The SEO Smart Links Plugins will automatically link keywords in posts to other relevant posts, categories and tags.
