You know what makes me cringe? Yes, Dance Moms. You know what else? Wordpress blogs that lack some of the easiest things to make them more search engine
1. Uncheck the uncategorized category
“Uncategorized” is the default category for WordPress blogs, but your posts should never be left uncategorized, looking completely random within your blog. When writing a blog post, always have an idea of your general topic in mind. Consider that broad idea your category. The categories are a great way to help both Google and readers of your blog understand the broad ideas of your blog and help navigate to related themes.
2. Update permalinks to include post titles
Too many times I’ve seen URLs for WordPress blog posts that look like this: http://www.myawesomeblog.com/?p=123 What’s the first thing you notice about this URL, compared to the URL of this very blog post you’re reading right now? Yes, instead of the post title, there’s a simple page number. This doesn’t tell search engines (or people, for that matter) what your post is about. The keywords used in your post title, body of your post, categories and URL are signals to search engines and help them to rank your blog posts. So it behooves you to change your permalinks to include your post titles.
3. Add keyword-focused titles and descriptions
WordPress will use your page or post title as the HTML page title tag, but will not include the meta-description or meta-keywords. To edit your post to include your focus keywords, I recommend using the All in One SEO Pack plugin to tackle this task.
4. Add social sharing buttons
You write great content, right? And you want increased traffic and inbound links, correct? Well, then make sure you have the option for your readers to easily share the blog post to their social networks! There are so many options for social sharing, but make sure you have the Google +1 button, Twitter tweet, Facebook like/share, and LinkedIn share. Depending on your content and audience, the Pin it button and other niche platforms might be relevant.
Sharing your scoops to your social media accounts is a must to distribute your curated content. Not only will it drive traffic and leads through your content, but it will help show your expertise with your followers.
