With a few simple changes, you can make your WordPress blog optimized for traffic generation.

The first thing you need to do is install the Yoast SEO plugin. It ensures your WordPress site is Google friendly and it even creates a sitemap for you.

Once you create your XML sitemap you need to add it to Google Search Console. This will help index your pages faster so you can get more search traffic.

In addition to the XML sitemap, Yoast allows you to create custom title tags and meta description tags for each blog post. Make sure you create one that is appealing by including adjectives and the keywords you are trying to rank for.

The more appealing it is, the higher your click-through-rate will be, which will cause your rankings to increase over time.

The second thing you need to do is cross link. As you publish more blog content you need to link your posts together which helps with indexation and rankings. Just make sure the links are relevant.

Follow those two tactics and you’ll have a search engine friendly WordPress blog.

  1. Great timing for this video! The SEO BOOK website is just what I needed to help with my competitive keyword research. Video quality is looking better as well, and the info compliments the AMP program training.

  2. Neil, thanks for keeping these videos in nice, small snippets. It's nice to know that I can turn to your channel if I want to refresh my memory on a "small" detail without having to go through a whole video, even if it's a video that's only 10 to 15 minutes. 🙂

  3. thank you sir,very helpful tutorial.would you plesae tell me how to keywords research and competitors analyze and then how to choose the final keyword to implement in my website.

  4. Hi Neil,I have learned a lot with your web in Spanish and now I will also do it with your channel.
    I still have difficulty understanding 100% English, but I want you to know that in order not to lose any of your videos I use YouTube subtitles :).I encourage your Spanish and Latino followers to do the same.A hug Crack

  5. You also said in the past that Squirrly SEO is the best SEO plugin for WordPress, so? I really love Squirrly and I use it every day in every project. Would be super helpful if you make a comparisson video 😉

  6. Thank you neil great stuff. I always wait for your videos and blog posts. They are really helpful.
    Can you also make a video about basic seo tips and keyword research.

  7. Hi Neil,

    In one of your videos you mentioned that having the date on your permalink could be bad for SEO as google can think of it as outdated. I thought it was a great piece of information!

    What about /%categogy%/ my category is a short tail keyword. Would it help having it there (as long as it is relevant. But otherwise if it is not, then it should not be in this category).


  8. Ok, so I actually pay for WordPress. However, unless I have the business plan, which is 3x as much as I pay now, then I cannot add plugins. I am new to this and am not making any revenue off of my blog, so, it doesn't make sense to purchase a premium package for a plugin. Do you have any suggestions on overcoming this without upgrading?
