Majalleye khabari sharj: Of all the content management systems, WordPress has always been promising. According to the latest statistics, roughly 29% of all Internet websites use WordPress for content management, while its closest competitor, namely, Joomla, holds only 3% of the websites.

WordPress is not only the most user-friendly platform possible but also great for SEO (SEO). In fact, it can be said that WordPress covers almost all the principles of SEO. Hence, by relying on this feature and getting help from a series of other strategies, you can significantly upgrade your WordPress SEO as a webmaster.

Here are 10 effective strategies for SEO WordPress, which can greatly enhance your site's ranking and make it better on Google.

 
WordPress.com v. WordPress.org

Before you log in to the WordPress SEO tutorial, note this: This post points to sites and blogs that are built according to WordPress.org.

WordPress.com is completely different from WordPress.org. Although WordPress.com is able to quickly create free weblogs, WordPress.org is a much more professional tool than a hosting service, both in terms of adaptability and SEO and branding.

The most important benefits of using WordPress.org are as follows:

  • Use the SEO plugins
  • Access to thousands of responsive and SEO-friendly themes
  • Take advantage of Google Search Console
  • Ability to apply code changes when needed

As mentioned above, WordPress.org has been optimized from the beginning. But the 10 strategies and extensions we'll describe below can bring you the most out of the SEO.

1) For a permanent link (Permalink), consider a constant structure

By default, the WordPress Pre-Link (or URL) structure is not very suitable for SEO or for users. For example, your permanent link might look something like this:

http://example.com/?p=N

Thankfully, WordPress allows you to change the default settings to something that's good for search engines. For example, something like this:

http://example.com/your-post-title

To access these settings, just follow the Settings> Permalink Settings in the WordPad Dashboard and then select Post Name. By doing this, you'll be sure that your URL structure is always simple, and it's an excellent idea that the URL of your posts will automatically be set up in the same manner.

But to get better results on SEO, you can also personalize the URL of each of your posts by changing the field of the Slug (unique identifier).

2) Use keywords in two important places: header and header tags

Using a keyword (or a set of keywords) in the content you write is inevitable. But keep in mind: A good and principled text is not just a multiplier of a single keyword, but also a range of words and phrases that all relate to your subject matter. 

But nevertheless, there is only one keyword that you will focus on as the main keyword. Naturally, the best and most important place to use this keyword is your headline (which also includes your keyword in URL). Preferably, use the keyword that is closer to your headline words.

Header tags (such as H2, H3, etc.) are designed to help Google and readers understand the content they've written about. Fortunately, WordPress in the Visual Editor section allows you to access all types of tags through a drop-down menu. (If you do not see this drop-down menu, just click the Toolbar Toggle button to appear).

By default, the headline of your post or page should be H1 (the largest and most recent headline). In fact, you should only use an H1 tag on each page or post .

But for the middleware of each post, it is usually recommended to use other tags (such as H2 and H3, etc.). For example, in this post, we've used the H4 tag for the middleware. If any of these middleware has a smaller subtitle header, we naturally have to use smaller tags (such as H5) to make them smaller.

3) Upload a Sitemap (Sitemap) XML

Sitemap An item is not required for Google to move between posts and pages of your site and index your content (listing in search results). But if it does, it assures you that your new content will quickly reach Google results.

Fortunately, there are extraordinary extensions that can create XML site maps for you. Among the most prominent ones, Google XML Sitemaps can be mentioned. The advantage of using this sitemap is to bring this issue to Google as soon as a new post is published, so your site is always up to date.

But a serious warning about using site maps: Be careful not to give Google your site secrets on the site of the map and robots.txt file. For example, if you have blocked certain pages of your site in the robots.txt file, you should never enter their site into your sitemap.

4) Register your website in Google Search Console

If you have not yet registered your site in Google Search Console (formerly known as the Google Webmaster Tool), you probably have lost a lot of important SEO notifications and alerts so far.

Google does its own messaging to access and index your content usually from the same platform. Also, the console recognizes the manual settings that damage your site.

Search Console is where you can see links to your website, and see which keywords bring more traffic to your site.

5) Given the keyword, consider the appropriate length for articles

In recent years, thousands of studies have been published on the length (number of words) for articles. Most of the research agrees that articles with a length of more than 2000 words are better seen on Google.

But the problem here is that there are short articles that rank very high. Instead of focusing on the exact length of your writing, focus more on the fact that the article you write will well answer all your reader questions.

 1. Understand which keywords are best for you: Find out what's going on with Google on the go and keep track of the stuff above the rest.

2. Ask yourself: Does an article that I write, can appear better than previous articles in the coverage of a particular topic? If you think you can make a word with fewer words, be sure to tap into it. If you also think that a longer post can be useful to readers, do not hesitate to write a new article.

3. Set your content to the reader's goals: If the reader's goal is to quickly answer your question, you can do this with a 500-word article. If their question is more complicated, perhaps writing a 3,000-word article can be fruitful to satisfy those individuals.

6) Decide whether to stay on www

This is a simple issue that can have an amazing effect on your site's SEO.

Google asks all webmasters to have a core domain and take SEO strategies. It's no different that this site is https://www.yoursite.com or https://yoursite.com. In any case, for SEO, it does not matter which one you use.

It's important to have a basic domain name and know it to Google Search Console and WordPress settings.

In the WordPad dashboard, just follow the Settings> Generals path and set the address of the WordPress and site address to your main domain. You should also do the same for Google Search Console.

To do this, just go to the console and point to the gear icon. Then enter the Search Settings and select your primary domain. It's all over now.

7) Use the HTTPS protocol for your site

If there is a section on your site where users must fill in a form's information, or if you provide payment services to them, you must use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

By using SSL, you are no longer confident that the sensitive and private information of your site visitors is encrypted and always secured securely. This affects not only your security but also your SEO rating. Let's make it clearer, if you do not use the HTTPS protocol, Google will label your site as "unsafe" and inform the visitor about it.

If you have not already used the HTTPS protocol, you might want to contact your hosting server right away.

8) Optimize your WordPress site in terms of speed

Loading speed is not only an important factor for your site's ranking, it also affects the visitor experience. As you see in the screenshots below, the longer the page load time is, the more likely visitors leave the page.

Google's PageSpeed ​​Insights tool can help you quickly get your website up and running. This tool grants it from 0 to 100 points by analyzing your site. It also introduces slider-loading features and provides solutions to fix them; solutions such as image compression, image optimization, and file caching in a browser that speeds up loading.

We recommend that you use multiple extensions at a time. For example, WP Super Cache , Smush Image Compression and Optimization, and WP-Optimize are ideal extensions.

9) Never stop making new links

Recent research has shown that links are much more important than other factors for keyword-focused sites that search less than 10,000 a month. Also, do not forget the importance of internal links.

If you link to any of the other content in any of your content, as you increase page views, you can increase the duration of the reader's stay on the website. Also, increasing the user interaction rate is another issue that you will get by providing internal links.

10) Install the Yoast plugin

If you only want to do one of all the 10 cases we've just mentioned, it will be Yoast plugin installation .

From the life of the Yoast SEO plug-in for nearly ten years , its makers have never failed to update it to comply with new SEO rules and algorithms.

Some of the benefits of using Yoast are as follows:

  • Full optimization of content: Yoast will prompt you to select a keyword for Nvshthtan, then ensure that it is in strategic locations to locate. Yoast also guides you in writing the meta description (a short description of the post below the link on Google), which will mean a click on your article.
  • Create XML Sitemap Automatically:  Just click on the special button so Yoast will create a Sitemap from all your posts, pages and images.
  • Adding auto-links to RSS feeds:  Are you tired of stealing your stuff? Yoast automatically adds the link to your RSS feed so Google knows that you've been the creator of this content.

But Yoast's other advantage is the ability to add multiple keywords to your content. As we said earlier, SEO standards in 2019 have gone a long way in getting better results as you use more and more keyword variations.

Ending speech

The strategies we've been discussing will be able to increase the visibility and popularity of your website in 2019 to make your content more engaging and more engaging with your site.

Once again, we emphasize that if you have not already used the HTTPS protocol, be sure to take action this year. In the next section, we'll look at how to use the Yoast plugin and the tricks for working with it.
