Hi, this is Jessica with TinyFrog Technologies and I’m filming today from Balboa Park here in San Diego. And today I’d like to talk about SEO plugins for WordPress. So, WordPress as a content management system actually has a lot of built-in features that are really great for SEO.
The content management system is really easy to edit pages, add meta descriptions. And WordPress sites in general are very easy for the search engines to index. But in addition to those built-in features, you can also install a free SEO plugin for WordPress. So when we’re working with clients and building a new website, we’ll often install a free SEO plugin such as Yoast or All-in-One SEO.
There’s a lot of different options we may recommend based on the client’s setup. But once this plugin is installed, it becomes a really good resource for you. So for instance, with Yoast when you are editing a blog post or page on your website, you can input a keyword that you want to optimize that blog post for and the Yoast section in the WordPress dashboard will actually tell you how to improve your content and optimize it for that keyword.
Now if you are trying to optimize your whole site for a really competitive keyword, it may be difficult to do that all on your own and you may want to have an expert help you with that. But definitely try to take advantage of these types of resources because it will help you learn some of the basics of SEO. If you have any questions about your site, definitely reach out to our team.
