SEO for CMS Website Design WordPress
Critical SEO Steps for your new CMS Website Design on WordPress
Search Engine Optimization for your CMS Website Design based on WordPress is not really hard but there are some things you should keep in mind when starting out or your site will be dead before it hits the race track!
Before you start CMS Website Design on WordPress:
1. Update Services ie. Pings
Most people make the HUGE mistake of not Clearing this setting before starting and get their website Banned from Most Blog search engines BEFORE they even make their website design Live! Everytime you hit “Publish” or “Update” it sends out a notification AUTOMATICALLY to the Blog Search Engines letting everyone know you’ve updated your website. How many times have you Rewritten a page when building your cms website design? After a while of doing that you are Banned because your content isn’t really changing. That’s a LOT of Link Juice you are losing right off the bat! This Updates the world about your CMS Website Design just like it does Blogs. See below about turning it back on.
Go To Settings>Writing and scroll down to the “Update Services” box and Clear out Any URL in there >Save Changes
2. Block Search Engines
Yes, BLOCK them while you are building! Its far harder to fix bad Rankings of your cms website design because of the constant changes you are making, than to just Unblock them once you are done and get a fresh start!
Settings>Privacy>Block Engines>Save Changes
3. Page Naming
Unless you are ONLY a Blog then page naming by default in WordPress will kill your CMS Website Design!
Settings>Permalinks>Common Settings and select Custom Structure then Paste into the box: /%postname%/
This will give you Named pages like
Notice those are Words, not numbers/Dates.
While there has always been a debate whether URLs effect your Ranking, we have proven time and again they Do!
Now do your normal CMS Website Design Search Engine Opimization:
Make sure ALL Graphics have Alt tags and Title Tags! (Keyworded of course)
Make sure ALL links have Title Tags! (Keyworded of course)
3. Use Headings
Make sure you use H1, H2 and H3 in that order on every page and Post (Keyworded of course)! Avoid “Stop Words” in the H’s. Do a search for a list of those.
4. Use Keywords
Make sure your content uses your Keywords Frequently!
5. Meta Tags
Make your Meta Tags, again avoid using “Stop Words”
Finishing up your CMS Website Design:
1. Turn On “Update Services”
You’ll want to do a search for “Ping Lists”. Make sure the list is current and there are No Duplicates! We have upwards of 20 in the list we use. Put each one on a new line. These will show as a Backlinks meaning a link TO your website!
Then Setting>Writing and scroll down to and paste that list into the “Update Services” box and save changes.
2. Turn On Search Engines
Settings>Privacy> top option
3. BIG BIG Key here!
Go back to Every page and click Update. This will then send out those notifications to your Ping list! (#1)
4. Publish/Update vs. Preview/Draft
From now on, forever remember to ONLY hit Preview or Save Draft unless you are REALLY ready to Publish/Update a page/post otherwise you’ll be burning those Pings heading for a Ban again! Publish/Update automatically sparks the Update Services!
Now, with a solid Search Engine Submission your cms website design will enjoy Fresh Backlinks FREE, everytime you create a new page or post! (thats upwards of 20 Everytime you do it!)
