4 SEO Plugins Your WordPress Website Must Have
So your company decided that it’s finally time to take the plunge into the blogging world. Congrats! It’s an integral part of any Internet marketing plan, and it’s a great thing that you have finally gotten started! Static websites don’t get nearly as much traffic as those that are continually updated. This is where blogging comes in, because each new blog post is fresh new content and another reason for someone to visit your website and browse around. Those intriguing blog posts wont matter too much if your blog isn’t formatted correctly for SEO. To make sure that you are maximizing your visibility, I have listed 4 SEO Plugings for your WordPress Website.
1.) All in One SEO Pack
All in One SEO Pack is one of, if not the most important plugin on this list. All in one SEO allows you to set up custom titles for all your pages, and blog posts. It also enables you to set the descriptions and keywords for the page so that search engine spiders can easily detect your keywords and check to see if your content is related.
Think of Akismet as the ultimate spam picker upper. This plugin will help to catch any spam that spammers might try to post to your website. It is generally a great idea to make sure that this is constantly updated whenever there is one available. Chances are if there is an update, it is because spammers have gone out of their way to go around the filter that Akismet sets up. Hence why you might see a lot more spam then usual if you don’t keep this plugin updated constantly.
3.) Google XML Sitemap
This Plugin makes life so much easier by sending out your xml sitemap to all the different search engines out there. It’s a one stop, do it all kind of plugin. Google XML Sitemap will literally create the XML Sitemap for you as well as ping it out to all the search engines it has in its database.
CommentLuv is a plugin designed to bring more traffic and comments to your blog, by fighting spam, adding in keywords, integrating blog links and twitter links, and most importantly its advanced back linking feature. The back linking feature provides a back link to the latest blog post on the page of the person who commented on your site and vice versa when you comment on other CommentLuv enabled blogs. It truly is the best commenting plugin for the avid blogger.
