We are now getting into the fun stuff!
You have your website in place and now you want to make it SEO ready so that search engines can find it. Our goal is to get ranked in the BIG 3, Google, Bing & Yahoo. Do note that our focus is going to be primarily on Google though as they own over 2/3 of all search traffic, and over 95% of mobile searches.
But why do you want rankings in the search engines? Simple…
Website Rankings + Targeted Traffic = Revenue!
This is the first step in creating an online revenue stream. Today we are going to walk you through the set-up of a plugin that is going to do a lot of the “dirty work” for you and will take care of the optimization of all your website pages/posts, meta tags, and other aspects that search engines look for when ranking your site.
I have created a video walk-through of this training and please follow along as it will add a lot of clarity to how SEO works, but also how to install the All in One SEO plugin.
Set-up All in One SEO on your site
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a very important aspect of any website’s success.
In this task we are going to be setting up a plugin that makes our website code (the stuff behind the scenes of our website) friendly for search engines like Google so they can index and rank our sites properly. This is going to be very powerful for your website content getting ranked in search engines going forward, so don’t skip this task.
Make sure you follow the instructions on setting this up from this lesson’s video. Here are a few things that you want to remember:
- You can update this at any time within your the main menu (the link to the All in One SEO set-up is just under the Dashboard menu item)
- Update your Home Title and Home Description. Keywords are not all that important.
- Change the | to – (optional)
- Save the settings when done.
You are NOT going to see these changes from setting up this plugin as the work is done behind the scenes within your websites HTML code. Don’t worry about this, it is making your code friend for search engines like Google. 🙂
