WordPress Plugins That Boost SEO Rankings

There is a myth out there that WorpdPress can give your blog high rankings in the search engine, right out of the box. This obviously isn't true or every blog powered by WordPress would rank well, which isn't the case. There is simply no way this software can know what keywords you wish to rank for and what your target market is, without your input.

Many new bloggers I have spoken with, had no idea that WordPress needed to be tweaked to become the powerful SEO tool it is hailed as. To use this software to its maximum ability, you need the help of several plugins. But which ones should you be using?

For all of my blogs, I always use three extremely important plugins that I feel work together to substantially increase my rankings.

Platinum SEO Pack

This is an extremely robust, but user friendly plugin that allows you to optimize the post and title pages and also create search engine friendly descriptions.

This basically means that now the title of your posts will appear before the blog title in the search engine results. This is extremely important if you are trying to rank for a certain keyword or for boosting your search engine rankings in general.

SEO Friendly Images

One powerful way to optimize your blog with your chosen keywords, is through the ALT tag. This plugin allows you to create keyword rich images all over your blog, quickly and easily.

This is a very underutilized way of driving traffic to your site, but is really quite simple to do with this handy little plugin.

Sitemap Generator Plugin For WordPress ess/

Sitemaps ensure that your entire blog will be crawled properly by the search engine robots. If you don't have a sitemap, you are taking a huge risk, especially with the Google bots.

This plugin will generate a sitemap for your blog and gives you the option to exclude whatever you wish, including pages and categories. It will also allow you to order the items in whatever order you wish.

Each time I create a new blog and setup these plugins, it takes less than 30 minutes. You don't have to be very tech savvy to use them, since all three plugins are pretty straightforward and quite simple. Now all you need to do is add content and you will be ready to dominate the search engines!

Why You Don t Want A Cannibal Website
I nearly choked on my lunch when I read an email from a client asking what she should do about her cannibal url. I hard to read the email a second time just to see if she was going crazy. That's when I realized she wasn't crazy, just confused. I replied back to this woman that she had nothing to fear, her url was not a cannibal, but was in fact a canonical url. Many people are confused about this term, but it is extremely important that you understand how it can affect the ranking of your...

Why Your WordPress Blog Could Disappear Forever

Why I Dislike Black Hat SEO
You don't have to be marketing online for long before you discover the dirty little word in our industry, Black Hat SEO. Basically, these search engine optimization (SEO) methods are used to trick the search engines into giving webpages higher rankings than is really deserved.

The Secret Method For Boosting Slow Sales
Would you believe me if I told you that many times the solution to skyrocket sales on a slow selling product, is to raise the price? When I first started to market online, I didn't truly understand this concept. I used to ask myself why customers would actually want to pay more for a product. It just seemed like it was a myth straight out of bizarro world. Of course this was before I learned about perceived value. A higher priced product is usually perceived to have a more significant value...
