How To Make Your Blog Search Engine Optimized?


Thinking how to make your blog Search Engine Optimized? It is very easy as there are plugins you can use for blog optimization. All Onpage optimization will be handled by this plugin for your blog. However for Offpage optimization you have to approach different strategies. Here I am saying about Onpage blog optimization for your blog.

Plugins to make your blog search engine optimized

Below are the plugins that you must use to make your blog search engine optimized. Install the plugins and activate it.

  • All In One SEO
  • Google XML Sitemap Generator
  • SEO Friendly Image
  • SEO Smart Link
  • Chunk URL
  • NoFollow FREE

I am showing you how to use All In One SEO Plugin for maximum benefit.

You can get the All in One SEO plugin here. Install the plugin and activate it. After activating some settings are needed.

Step1: Click on All in One SEO. If you are using Wordpress 2.7.1 or upgrade version it will appear in Settings. After clicking you will get as:

All in One SEO for Blog Optimization

Step2.1: Enter your title for your blog. Remember to put your keyword. This title is very important. This is title of your blog that appears on the browser. This title won’t appear on your blog header. Title is shown by the search engine in result.

Step2.2: Enter your home description. This is the meta description of your blog. This description is shown by search engine in result below title.

Step2.3: By default post title format is %post_title% | %blog_title%. Change it to %post_title%. The reason why I am saying to change is it is not necessary to display your blog title with each post. For example if I hadn’t changed, for this post title would have displayed as “How To Make Your Blog Search Engine Optimized? | Earn Money Online”. Defiantly this is not a good title as it is not related and it is more than 60 character.

Step2.4: Click on Update Option

OK, you have configured All In One SEO plugin. Now time is to use it for proper use. Use it for every a new post. Here I am showing how I used this plugin for this post.

Using All in One SEO for Blog Optimization

Enter Title, Description and Keywords. Next publish your post. Now search engine will take this contents and display in result.

Setting the Permalink for blog optimization:

Permalink is the link of your each blog post. For each post there will be different different link. For Permalink setting click on Permalinks in Settings.

Default setting of Permlink is as:

http://YourDomain.com/?p=123 -> This is not a search engine friendly link as search engine can’t recognize this link.

It is better if your link contain blog title including the keywords. For this go to Common Settings and choose Custom Structure.

Write Custom Structure as /%category%/%postname%

This will change each link to SEO friendly link as:

http://yourdomain.com/category/post-title.

However you can change the post title in the link before publishing if you want to do so.

GOOGLE XML Sitemap Generator: This plugin will generate a sitemaps.org compatible sitemap of your WordPress blog which is supported by Ask.com, Google, MSN Search and YAHOO.

SEO Friendly Image: This plugin will automatically adds alt and title attributes to all your images. Improves traffic from search results and makes them W3C/xHTML valid as well.

SEO Smart Link: SEO Smart Links provides automatic SEO benefits for your site in addition to custom keyword lists, nofollow and much more.

Chunk URL: This plugin shorten urls in comments so that they won’t break your site.

NoFollow FREE: According to Google’s new policy if your blog contain more nofollow links it may reduce your pagerank. Why not to give your blog commentor a bonus buy giving them a link to their blog? If you want to do so make your blog’s comment link dofollow. This plugin remove the nofollow tag from your blog’s comments with a lot of options customizable, per user type removal, per comments count removal etc.

  3. Great info. I agree that a lot of bloggers don’t take the time to make a few tweaks to their content that could make a real big difference in traffic. Especially with platforms like Wordpress that has so many plug-ins, SEO is now easier than ever, and a must to compete with others who write on similar niches. Great read., thanks.
