|- Using meta descriptions
WordPress automatically generates meta descriptions for every blog using the system.
However, you may want to make sure that your site will have effective keyword index for better SEO -- for people that believe in such a thing. To ensure higher search engine ranking, manually type a good description per post. Combine a keyword-rich title and matching description and see how the strategy boosts search traffic.
It is also a good idea to install and use a WordPress plugin specifically designed to enhance search engine optimization. One popular plug-in that comes highly recommended is "All In One SEO". It is designed to create and post a matching description for each title and post. It also helps optimize your meta descriptions.
- Describing post images
Use "alt" and "title" attributes when describing images or posting captions in your blog entries. Adding short descriptions of images using ideal keywords can bolster search engine traffic and ranking. It is a common mistake of many WordPress blog owners to neglect the use of such attributes when posting images.
When saving images, provide a simple and short name with a dash in between every keyword. Thus, if you have a photo of a California sushi bar, the image file should be named as: California-sushi-bar.jpg. Underscore can be used to replace the dash (California_sushi_bar.jpg).
- Use Permalinks
You need to be sure that you are using permalinks on your WordPress site. By default your WordPress software contains web URL's which contain question marks and numbers inside of them. These links are hard for the search engine web crawlers to attach themselves to. As a result your site will not be indexed as fast as it would normally be. WordPress also, however, does offer you the opportunity to create custom URL's for both your permalinks and archives. You will be able to find this option under your Administration panel. All you will have to do is to choose the options panel then click on permalinks.
- Optimize Your Titles
In the permalinks section of your WordPress marketing software you have the option of date and name based. This option will place the year, month, date, and post title in your URL. For the SEO web crawlers it is best to have the TITLE of your site appear in the front of this URL. So instead of using the basic URL you should choose the custom URL and create a link that has your site name appearing first.
- Pay attention to tags
Tags are a great addition to your site on a SEO standpoint. They will enable the search engines web crawlers to crawl through your site more easily and also it will allow you to create specific pages for your tags and keywords. You can also install the Ultimate Tag Warrior for your WordPress.
- Creating Great Page Titles
You will need to make sure you have good titles on all of your webpages. Just as you put the site name at the beginning of your URL you will need to do the same thing with your page title.
- Post titles
The post titles that you choose should be clearly written. Do not stuff these titles with keywords that you are using to target your site or blog. Choose your keywords carefully when you are posting and get those words in your post title.
- Ping services
Each time you post or edit either a posting or a page your Wordpress blog can be made to notify a variety of different sites of the fact that you have updated your blog. It is very important that you use this step.
Once you have your web site set up, simply go to your administration area then move down to SETTINGS, then WRITING. Drop on down to UPDATE SERVICES. Add the pingers, just ONE PER LINE. Save, and you're done. EVERY POST YOU MAKE, and EVERY TIME YOU REWRITE A POST these servers will tell ALL their subscribers that you have done so, automatically.
- Google sitemaps
Google has a tool for you that are called Google Sitemaps. This tool will help you index your site and allows you to tell Google which pages are the most important.
- Using Categories To Drive More Traffic
-- will help you organize your content. If you have your permalinks turned on, the category names will appear in your URL. This is why it is very important that you name your category names very carefully. Try and make sure that you use keywords to name your categories and do not be afraid to make loads of them. WordPress gives you the ability to use sub categories and sub-subcategories so make as many categories you can. This way you are able to down your focus on certain keyword phrases.
Creating a WordPress site that is SEO ready is fairly simple when you use the proper tools and follow a few simple rules. Using the steps we discussed in this issue can help you create a great SEO friendly site in no time.
Plug-Ins are a WordPress users best friend, because of their ease of use and functionality. Without them, a Wordpress site will be relatively empty, unprotected, lack functionality, and require much more maintenance.
Currently, there are over 21,000 available plug-ins in Wordpress' directory that are free and easy to use. Generally, these plug-ins are created for a specific purpose and can be used to enhance the look and function of your site quickly and easily.
The way Wordpress is designed (open source) allows people to create plug-ins or add-ons that improve the interface or provide more control over how your site looks and functions. The right plug-ins give you the ability to shape your site into just about anything you want.
However, there are useless plug-ins and plug-ins that don't function well together. So you need to choose carefully, because the wrong plug-ins can slow down the load speed of your site and even stop it from functioning completely. That is why it's important to think before you activate. It's also a good idea to limit the amount of plug-ins you install on your site to only the most beneficial and necessary.
When choosing which plug-ins to install you should start by making a list of the features you would like to include in your site design. Then only choose plug-ins that will help you achieve those goals and work to enhance the function of your site.
In order to use a plugin, you simply have log into your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the add new section under "Plugins" on your sidebar and begin searching for the plug-ins you would like to install. From within the dashboard installing a plug-in is as easy as clicking on install now next to the plug-in you've chosen and then activating it.
Alternatively you can download, unzip and upload your new plug-in to your server under the public_html/yourblogdirectory/wp-content/plugins directory. Then you log into your dashboard and activate the plugin from there.
Now let's go over a few simple guidelines that will help you identify which plug-in's will work best for your site:
- Know what you really need
Sort out the ideal-plug-ins according to necessity. If you are running an online store and financial transactions take place all the time, your website will be a sitting duck for hackers, so you might want to install a plug- in that prevents hackers from getting through and stealing the credit card details of your customers or one that detects suspicious log-ins.
- Check the credibility of the plug-in author
While, it is not hard to trust a person or a group that obviously has an established reputation on the web I always filter through the description to see if the author knows how to write well in English. If they can't spell or use English properly, they could make coding mistakes that don't show up immediately -- but can do irreparable damage the longer you use the plug in. I have bought my own plug-ins and urge you to do so as well. The service I use is the golden membership provided by Resell Weekly. Once you are a member use the links at the top of the page to click on PRODUCT SEARCH. Search for PLUG-INS, and choose the ones you want most. The newest plug-ins will appear at the top of the list. The owner of this site usually grabs the best ones very soon after they have been created.
Before installing any plug-in it's a good idea to investigate its author, check out its reviews and make sure there aren't any complaints from other users. This way you can be sure that you're installing a plug-in that will not damage your site.
- Compare quality and ratings
Product comparison is the key to determining which plug-ins will work best for your site. Usually, you can narrow down your choices by comparing ratings and feedback that are provided in the plug-in directory. These ratings will help you gauge the credibility and popularity of the plug-in and it's author.
Just think of yourself as a smart online shopper and don't hit the "Add to cart" button until you have done your research and determined which product will work best for you and then remember the same caution must be practiced when "shopping" for free or premium plug-ins.
While a WordPress site is already functional by itself, there are additional tasks that you can do to make it more functional.
- Do your half of the SEO
Most Wordpress sites have built-in SEO-friendly programs that aims to have your site indexed automatically once it goes up. However, this is part of the on-site search engine optimization. There is still one fragment of the whole package that you should take care of and this is called off-site search engine optimization.
Yes, making it more functional is in your hands now and you can add more traffic and exposure to your website by performing extra tasks like link-building, article directory submissions, blog commenting, etc. At the same time, you can add supplementary SEO plug-ins to make intensify your website's performance.
- Provide added convenience
Adding custom contact forms is fancy but very convenient for your site visitors, members, or customers. Wordpress does have built-in contact forms which you can also customize but if you are meticulous, you can always install special plug-ins that lets you design your own contact forms. How does it make your site more functional - Attractive designs always leave a good impression on your visitors, credibility- and sophistication-wise. This would make them want to come back.
- Do not overcrowd your site with plug-ins with low ratings
Although plug-ins do not generally slow down the loading time of your website, they do mess up your site one way or another, especially the ones with very poor rating. If you must install certain plug-in for security and SEO, choose only the ones that have mass appeal. This way you can be sure that they are from credible authors and your site would work the way you want them to, and then some.
- Mind the tags, taxonomies, and descriptions
This is actually supposed to be part of the SEO work but most site owners regard these small details irrelevant, which is actually not true. Tags, taxonomies, and descriptions are the windows to your site. Major search engines depend their indexing methods through these. For example, title tags and descriptions with related keywords will be easily found and indexed by Google increasing your page rank and traffic.
- Regular updates
Many website owners hope to generate profit from their website without sitting for long hours in front of the computer. Setting up an SEO-friendly Wordpress website often gives them the impression that it would run on auto-pilot so they sit around the whole day and still expect a substantial amount of check at the end of the month.
Wrong! Constant updating is needed to make the Wordpress site "more" functional. Sure, WP does its part but it only makes things "more" convenient for you. That does not mean it would work for you. You still have to take over the important functions that will make it more profitable.
Many things can be done in order to make your site more functional and these are just some of the few suggestions. In time, you will be able to discover them one by one as you spend time with it.
Secure your WordPress site against hacking.
Security has become a major concern for post 9/11 website owners and users alike. If a hacker thinks you have something in your website database That they want they won't even think twice about trying to hack in and take it. Whether it be your list of email contacts or your customers credit card information. They will go to great lengths to invade your privacy for their own personal gain.
They use sneaky tactics, embed malware and change the code in your website files all in an attempt to download your information, your customers information, your products or simply to sabotage your site for no apparent reason. it doesn't matter whether your site is big or small if they can find a way in, chances are you'll lose everything.
For the average site administrator, using systematic codes might be a bit complex, but thanks to Wordpress promoting multiple security measures there are a wide variety of plug-ins available to help you protect your site from vicious hackers.
Let's go over a few:
- Use Firewalls
Aside from the firewall built into your web browser, Wordpress also has firewall plug-ins that will help block malicious entries. These combined with an installed anti-virus program on your computer make a powerful force against most hackers.
- Constant updates
There is a tendency for many site owners to ignore update notifications displayed occasionally by Wordpress. Those are the ones you see on top of the page every time you open the dashboard. Thinking these updates could cause the website to lag, these notification often go straight to the trash, figuratively speaking.
If you think ignoring these updates will cause you any problems, you should keep in mind that they contain extra features to enhance the security of your site. So, the next time a notification pops up from WordPress just hit "OK!"
- Manage your plug-ins properly- Manage your plug-ins properly
Plug-ins that are idle, not used, or inactive can be a bait to hackers, so check your plug-in list once in a while to update the plug-ins you are currently using. This will help keep your site in order, clean, and hack-proof.
When updates have to be made, it is important to back up all your files to ensure that you can restore your site's content just in case the backup fails. There are many plug-ins designed specifically to make this task simple and painless.
It's also a good idea to keep duplicate copies of your site content and back it up in multiple places. For instance you could keep a copy on your computer hard drive as well as on an online storage system like Google Drive.
This way you can be sure you are protected just in case your site gets hacked.
Most hackers start life out by attempting to guess passwords of site owners in order to gain access to personal information especially credit card numbers and sites visited. Then they realize it is less strenuous to just pick up your information from the other sites you visit. Yeah, if you are too lazy to keep different passwords for different reasons, it might soon be Open Season on you.
Hackers have a wide variety of reasons for doing what they do, but that is beside the point. Your time and energy is better spent by focusing on how you can protect your site, your own account, and your site member's accounts. Remember this also, the most important thing they can rob you of is your good reputation. That is something you never want to lose, right?
Of course, you can install Wordpress plug-ins that are designed to block entry by limiting the log-in attempts. Check out Wordpress for more details, but a good place to start is the 1Password plug-in or one similar to it.
Overall, the key is to preventing hackers from stealing information is to take every necessary precaution you can. When your security strategies become lax, you leave yourself wide open for an attack. The security of your site should be taken very seriously and should never be left to chance.
Let's talk about the tasty benefits of hiring a WordPress developer. The popularity of Wordpress is unparalleled, with thousands of WordPress based sites to be found on the Internet, ranging from personal blogs to massive online stores. I'm quite sure that the user-friendly WordPress interface has something to do with that.
For one thing, even a complete beginner with no technical skills can use WordPress to build a website quickly and easily. This is because WordPress themes and plug-ins do most of the work for you.
With this being said, if you want a unique and custom designed presence on the web you will need to hire a WordPress developer.
If you are not a programmer and do not know HTMl, CSS or PHP the money you will spend on a Wordpress developer is definitely worth it. On the other hand, if you are willing to devote 10 to12 hours a day of your time working on your site, it is certainly not necessary, but do you really want to invest that much time and effort. There are some great benefits that you can get from hiring a WP developer such as the following:
Provided you know a few things about cleaning up your HTML or CSS, but only on a user level you can add slashes and change div settings but the idea of finding specific items from a cascading style sheet still makes you tremble. You can learn all this in time but taking time out to learn it would delay the progress of your blog.
By hiring a WP developer, you simply lean back in your executive's chair and point out what you want to change or enhance. To really sound professional you might indicate when you would like these changes to take effect and PRESTO, CHANGEOH, your WordPress blog will be up and running smoother in no time at all.
How is this much efficiency achieved? - Their speed is derived from knowing exactly what they should be working on! They know the in's and out's and in their spare time they keep up with all the new technological advances coming forth every day.
They can modify your website according to your instructions and they will suggest options to make improvements and more SEO-friendly. Depending on your budget you can have a WordPress developer design your blog. Designers usually charge by the project or by the hour depending on your needs.
Keep in mind that the more functionality you want and the more tweaks to this and that you need, the more the cost goes up but, on the plus side you will have an totally unique and functional WordPress blog that can make can monitize. What would normally take you a month or more (if you have invested the time to become tech savvy) would be done in a matter of days or less depending on your specifications.
Wordpress developers are good at what they do and they specialize in giving you a functional and unique WordPress blog designed just for you.
Come Up To Speed
Optimizing your Wordpress site is the key to making it load faster. Wordpress developers know the tricks to make this happen but average web owners who possess limited or basic knowledge on codes would find this task quite challenging. Wordpress, however, has several easy ways that can help you optimize the site and speed up the loading time. The following are some of the best and easiest steps:
- Always cache
Caching is a method wherein data like html pages, images, and the like are stored temporarily. This is also used to accelerate the loading time of a Wordpress site. Wordpress offers free plug-ins designed to cache data easily and this is ideal for most average users.
- Remove useless plug-ins
- Compress images and video files
Did you know that large image files and video files can cause your pages to lag. Wordpress has a wonderful feature that allows you to 'thumbnail' your photos, so you can save space and your pages will load much faster. Also try compressing video and image files and reduce it to kilobytes instead of megabytes.
- Change your themes
Sometimes, the problem is not found on your end but on the themes maker's end. There are themes that are loaded down with large graphics and tons of code so you may want to try choosing a minimalist type of theme. You may not get an eye-candy blog but you would surely get a user-friendly blog. Besides, users nowadays are after the content and not the design and if it is taking to long for your site to load they will go elsewhere.
- Change hosts
If you have optimized the quality of media and image files and done all that you read above and your site still moves slower than molasses, then check with your hosting provider. Sometimes the hosting itself is the culprit. Consider migrating to a more reliable web hosting provider that can provide more options for your loading problem.
- Compress and combine CSS and JS
Even if you are not an WordPress expert or a web developer, you can spot defects on your blog and find simple solutions at the same time. There are tons of self help files available on the internet. Having a Wordpress site makes troubleshooting easier because thousands of plug-ins are available to address your specific needs.
Let's talk about investing in a (paid) premium WordPress theme.
Free WordPress themes are great for the casual blogger, but if you want to stand out in the professional crowd then a premium WordPress theme is probably the right ticket for you.
- Premium themes are totally functional over many platforms and also function with the ever changing technologies of today. Premium themes allow you to create a more attractive and profit-generating website. It lets you apply modifications that will provide convenience to your site visitors. What more can you ask for?
- Free themes have limited designs and capabilities unless you are a skilled programmer which most of us, unfortunately are not. With the constant updates that Wordpress makes in its platform, almost all themes are generously made SEO-friendly with enabled connectivity through social media, but on the down side when WordPress asks you to update you may find that your free theme no longer functions properly and then you will most likely be looking for a more compatible free theme and just when you have it the way you wanted...the nightmare begins.
- As a premium theme subscriber, you have access to 24/7 technical support to help you troubleshot whatever problems you may be encountering, one thing you cannot find in free themes.
- Compared to standard themes, premium themes are frequently updated artistically and technically speaking.
- Most often, premium themes are ready-to-use and the only tasks you need to perform is to upload your content which is a big time saver plus!
- They are also browser-tested. Once you get them up, you can be sure that Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer users can view your website without encountering any problems. If you happen to receive any complaints regarding this, you can always contact technical support to assist you.
If you are not tech savvy, you can still enjoy premium Wordpress themes that can be operated like standard websites. Some of them can be modified without meddling with the CSS or HTML part because they feature drag and drop functionality. Thus, not being an IT person is not an excuse not to enjoy the huge benefits of premium themes.
When you are done, Use your first, successfully published product as a template for even more products.
>>>>>>>Add more content on a regular basis<<<<<<
This tells people you are alive. hey, if they see activity on your website they might even think you are open for business, their business.
First off, you need to realize that there are two kinds of content that need to be put up on your website. Right off the bat you will want to put up permanent content. We are going to call this pages. Your pages are not going to change much if any at all! Later you will need to decide which one you want customers to see first, the permanent pages, or the temporary posts that we call posts.
Examples of pages might be the story of your business. We will call this one About Us. You can put up just about anything you want to on this page, you might even think of it as your first snow job, you know, where you really put on the show. A picture of yourself -- or a stream of people thronging the front door of your business to get in! these pictures would go really good on this page, wouldn't they? Another page might be How To Contact Us. And a third page might be products for sale, or perhaps Plans For The Future!
Now, what about the temporary posts? What could you put up there? The best suggestion I have is to post comments about what you are doing now for your customers. Perhaps you have put in a new aisle of candy for an upcoming holiday. The key here is to put up some really good pictures to go with your story.
I can help you with all of this, but naturally I would expect to be paid for it. You can call me on the phone if you prefer, you can write to me at the following address, ShareYourState@yahoo.com starting prices are extremely low. I am talking about less than 10 dollars, just to put this into perspective for you.
Okay, it's time to post
You will also want to make sure that you backup your WordPress database regularly. You can do this by logging into your hosting accounts cpanel, clicking on "phpMyAdmin" and selecting the database you wish to backup then choose export. Again you will want to keep a copy of this export in multiple places.
