Google’s SEO Starter Guide outlines several rules for optimizing your website for search engines. Let’s take a closer look at some of these rules and how they apply to SEO with WordPress.
- Make Your Site Appealing and Easy to Use
Google values websites that provide a good user experience. This means that your website should be visually appealing, easy to navigate, and free of technical issues. In WordPress, you can achieve this by using a responsive and fast theme, optimizing your images, and testing your website on different devices and browsers.
- Create Great Content
Creating high-quality, relevant, and engaging content is key to SEO. Your content should provide value to your audience and answer their questions. It’s important to optimize your content by using keywords, meta tags, and formatting. In WordPress, you can use an SEO plugin like Yoast SEO to help you optimize your content.
- Optimize Your Website’s Structure
Your website’s structure affects how search engines crawl and index your site. To optimize your website’s structure, use descriptive and concise URLs, optimize your meta tags, and use header tags to organize your content. In WordPress, you can customize your website’s structure by using permalinks and optimizing your titles and descriptions.
- Use Descriptive and Concise Titles and Descriptions
Your titles and descriptions are the first things that users see in search results. They should be descriptive, concise, and accurately represent your content. In WordPress, you can optimize your titles and descriptions using an SEO plugin like Yoast SEO.
- Use Header Tags to Organize Your Content
Header tags (H1, H2, H3, etc.) are used to organize your content and help search engines understand its structure. Use only one H1 tag per page and use H2, H3, and other header tags to break up your content into sections. In WordPress, you can use the visual editor to add header tags to your content.
- Use Alt Text for Images
Alt text is used to describe images to search engines and users who can’t see them. Use descriptive alt text that accurately describes your images and includes relevant keywords. In WordPress, you can add alt text to your images when you upload them to your media library.
By following these rules for SEO with WordPress, you can optimize your website for search engines and improve its visibility and ranking. Remember to focus on creating great content, optimizing your website’s structure and meta tags, and using descriptive and concise titles and descriptions.
