Hii guys I am Shubham Chaurasiya and today we are going to learn how to do perfect SEO set up for WordPress site.
Firstly I have a question for you.
How many of you has your website made on WordPress?
Comment below with your answers.
Google has various factors in improving your website ranking. Some of them are as follows:-
- Mobile Friendliness
- User Experience
- Website Speed
- On-Page SEO
- Structures Markups
- Internal Linking Structures
All the factors stated above help in improving your rankings. There are over 200 factors included in Google Algorithms. Today we are going to learn about those WordPress Plugins that will help you in improving all those factors discussed above in an easy and controlled way.
Use W3 Total Cache. As you know loading time is very important in SEO as well in ranking. Because most of the people perform searches on Google on mobile devices nowadays. Look if your load time is not good then it doesn’t matter which network you are using. This plugin loads your website as fast as possible. It will also help you to connect with CDN’S ( CONTENT DELIVERY NETWORK) so that it makes good uses of your server’s resources. In this way, your server doesn’t have to push the same content again and again. Instead, it caches it so as to deliver to end-users as fast as possible. Basically good hosting providers have an in-built cache. But if you don’t have then you can use this plugin.
Start using the Smush Image Compression plugin. If you are creating a blog on WordPress you should include images in your blog post. If you include images then it is good and if you don’t include then start using images because an image says 1000 words and looks attractive too. This plugin ensures that your images look good and quality, so that when someone reads your blog and looks on that images it doesn’t get pixelated. Your images look sharp and also it decreases the size of the images.
The next plugin is the YOAST SEO plugin. This plugin manages your On-Page SEO. It controls your meta description, title tag, It also analyses your performance whether it is good or bad. This plugin also creates sitemaps for you. Basically it does all the things that ensure your WordPress blog is SEO friendly.
Start using SUCURI. Suppose your website gets hacked then your rankings and your keywords will fall down and once it falls it is very hard to recover it. This plugin protects your website from getting hacked. It is not going to be perfect but yes it is better than nothing. Once your website is hacked and when you start fixing it then even after you won’t get results. Sometimes it takes a month, six months or even a year to get back on track. If it happens quickly then you are so lucky.
The fifth plugin I have for you is AMP for WordPress. This plugin helps you to do well on mobile devices. If you want to rank high make sure your site has an AMP framework. It will surely give a boom in your traffic.
Talking about the next plugin we get to know about A3 Lazy Load. Even if you compress your images it still takes time to load. You have to make sure that when people are scrolling on your page all the images of that page load quickly instead of loading all the images. This will create a user-friendly experience.
The seventh plugin is ALL IN ONE SCHEMA RICH SNIPPETS. If you want to show rich snippets between the page titles you have to use this plugin. Always use tags that are related to your industry. Never abuse schema markups.
Last but not least, Really Simple SSL. As you know most of the top websites have SSL installed. Now it becomes a prerequisite if you want to rank on google. It is provided by the hosting or domain provider. Whatever it may be but make sure your site is secured.
So finally start using these 8 WordPress plugins, within the time you will see your ranking is upgrading.
