How To Achieve Best WordPress SEO Powered By Docstoc
					You might start your quest for best WordPress SEO by looking at the
numerous WordPress SEO Plugins available. You will see lots of articles
and posts reviewing these and producing top tens. You can also find
articles giving the author's views on the essential plugins for anyone
serious about SEO.Whilst I agree that there are many beneficial plugins
(and they should be used) it is a mistake to think that they will by
themselves give you best WordPress SEO. It is better to think of them as
fine tuning your WordPress site to make it as search engine friendly as
possible but they won't turn round a site with poor basic SEO.The biggest
mistake you can make with SEO is to choose the wrong keywords. For the
average webmaster getting a high ranking for highly competitive keywords
will be very difficult if not, for practical purposes, impossible. It is
therefore vital that you find less competitive keywords, but still with a
good search volume, at the outset. It is always tempting to rush this
stage but if you get it wrong it could well be that all your other SEO
activities are a waste of time.The other key requirement for best
WordPress SEO is good content. Your content should be unique, of value to
visitors and should be updated/added to frequently. Each page/post should
be targeted at a keyword which should be used throughout the text and in
various tags. You should understand how to write in a search engine
friendly way and run through a checklist before you publish a page/post
to ensure it is done properly. Best WordPress SEO is not trying to
manipulate or deceive the search engines in any way it is simply writing
your content in a way that enables the search engines to understand the
relevancy of it.So, if you have good keywords and good content you can
start to achieve best WordPress SEO by installing some plugins to address
the following:Titles - Control format of titles (in browser title bar and
search engine results).
Duplicate Content - No index duplicate content.
Links - Automatically add internal and external links.
Canonical URLs - Helps enforce chosen URL format (e.g. use of WWW or
URL shortening - Remove common words from URLs.
Sitemap - Make it easy for the search engines to find and index content.
Monitor for Errors - Report broken links and 404 errors.
Caching - Make the site load faster (good for SEO).The above is not a
complete list as there are many more things you can do to fine tune your
best WordPress SEO. One SEO plugin I would mention specifically is
SEOPressor which is one of my favourites.
