PostHeaderIcon Tips to Make SEO Friendly WordPress

WordPress development has over the years built a name for itself. Many who want to build sites use the WordPress CMS as it is faster and easier. However, you probably by now have heard many say that WordPress development is not so SEO friendly out of the box. And given the fact that you would like your page to be ranked top, you will have to make many of the tweaks in WordPress yourself if you ever want to be at the top of Google’s search page. While having to play around with the WordPress CMS during WordPress development may come as a bad news for many, there is some good news – you do not have to be an SEO specialist to improve your WordPress site ranking.

wordpress-seoGoogle some time back confirmed officially that the loading speed of your site contributes to the ranking that you get. Yes you may strive to have as many backlinks as possible and the best site content, but if your page loads like at the speed as that of a slug, the Google will not give you a good ranking. In addition, the slow speed of your site will drive away visitors. And given that Google also considers the experience metrics of the users based on the page views, repeat visitors and the dwell time, you will obviously get a low raking. It helps to have a fast loading site. In wordpress, you can increase the speed by making use of plugins made available such as W3 total cache and WP Smush It.

Not adding to the images keyword rich elements is one grave mistake that most WordPress users make. You should know that search engines, Google inclusive, have no way of seeing the image that you have up on your site. As such, they rely on the alt text attribute to know what the image is on as well as have an idea of what your site is all about. Therefore, adding the alt text on each image that you have up will help you generate some traffic from the Google images. And the best part about it is the fact that adding the alt text to the image is a walk in the park. All you have to do is add the Alt text. A single word will suffice.

Last but not least, add to the site Google authorship. The search engine is by the day paying more and more attention to the people who are behind the content. There is also a lot of fuss about Author rank and the person doing the writing. It is anticipated that in the very near future this will be an important factor when it comes to the Google ranking.
