Starting a new blog is fun. This becomes even more fun when you start it for your passion and you don’t worry about money and fame from your blog.
If you start a blog in this condition, then you do not care about many things such as blog design, SEO, and many other factors.
But if you are like me who considers blogging as your career and if you want to make blogging as a career choice, then it is serious work for you and you care about every important element related to your blog. Have to do.
To increase your blog visibility in search engines, WordPress SEO is such an important factor.
Here I am going to share some ways by which you can implement search engine optimization in your blog.
You can do this yourself. Just keep following the things I have said.
A sitemap is an XML file. Which indexes important links (posts, pages, tags, categories) of your blog.
With the help of WordPress Sitemap, the search engine bots effectively discover the content of your blog and index it in the search engine.
WordPress has many sitemap plugins.
But I use Google XML sitemap which is a very old and reliable sitemap plugin.
you have to do is install and activate the Google XML sitemap.
After activating the plugin, you can generate the sitemap for your blog by going to plugin settings.
After generating the sitemap, go to the Google Webmaster tool and Bing Webmaster tool and submit your sitemap after submitting and verifying your blog. submitting the sitemap, all the internal pages of your blog will start to crawl and index.
2. Control the indexing of your WordPress blog:
This is also a very important factor to get a good ranking in the search engine.
You offer the best content to be indexed in the search engine.
According to Panda updates, google penalizes the domain which contains low-quality content.
Your pages like – tags, categories, author archives are not useful for all search engine indexes.
So a quick and easy way is to add noindex tag to these pages.
You can use Meta robots and WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin to add the Noindex tag.
