    Hello guys,


    I want to share with you the most important things you should do in order to optimize your WordPress blog or website for optimal SEO performance.



    Use SEO-Friendly URLs

    SEO-friendly urls will boost your results because they help Google to understand what your page is about


    Optimize your titles for SEO

    Titles are probably on of the most important on page SEO factor. For best results start your title with your keyword or place it in the beginning.


    Add modifiers to your title

    Use modifiers like “2016”, “best”, “guide”, and “review etc. They will help you to rank for long tail keywords.


    Optimize your descriptions

    Your descriptions are very important because they will help you to increase your CTR and this will help you to climb in SERP.


    Eliminate thin or duplicate content

    Duplicate content decrease the quality of your blog or website and send link juice down the drain.

    Thanks! But I want to add one more thing. Web design plays an essential role for SEO. It is only the websites with the best web design will win among others. There are two options - hire a specialist or use a template. It's cheaper to choose the second option. That's why I recommend you to have a look at this wordpress portfolio themes. Often use WP theme and I have to say it works :rolleyes:
