Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
There are a few easy ways to speed up your WordPress website. Last week, I visited a beautiful website of an art therapist after reading her monthly newsletter. It took forever to open. It was easy to track down the reasons and suggest some fixes to her that she could do herself. I’ll share some here.
I may have written about this or mentioned it: folk finding you via search engines. How do search engines decide which websites to place higher in their listings than others? That’s a well kept secret that lots of folk get paid lots to try to second guess. It’s the field of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). This much is known: search engines value more the sites they think are more important. So let’s start working from there.
I have been researching a plan of action for getting a client’s site found via Google. Lot’s of web marketing stuff out there on things like how to use keywords. What’s Web 2.0 for reams? Watched a video yesterday by Matt Cutts who is head of Google’s Webspam team. He does a lot of videos on common sense ways to handle SEO.
I’m continuing to learn as much piece meal or trial & error as in an organized read the manual manner. After fiddling around with the last theme until I liked it I read an article Chris Price at A3Webtech wrote. He said, “The simplest way to check a basic level of quality, as ever, is to go to the W3C online validator at http://validator.w3.org and check the website’s index page.”
Regarding your site showing up on search engines: keeping it fresh – fresh new information. One way to do that would to have a blog. Although it can be a separate stand alone blog, it might also be an information page that you update regularly.
