Keep in mind, alone WordPress is not going to help you rank higher in SERPs but WordPress makes it a lot easier for SEO.

In this WordPress SEO Guide, we are going to walk you through 25 SEO Optimization tips for WordPress from scratch.

WordPress SEO Tips and Guide

What is SEO?

The full form of SEO is Search Engine Optimization. SEO is basically the way of optimizing your site and contents to achieve higher rankings in Search Engines (Google, Bing, Yandex, etc.)

It is the best method of driving quality traffic to your site for free unlike paid methods where you will have to pay money to get traffic to your site.

WordPress SEO Basic Settings

These 4 basic settings are the foundation of WordPress SEO and it is very important to implement these just after you start your blog or site.

Because it will hurt your rankings if your change any of these later on.

It includes:

  1. Delete Dummy Pages, Posts & Comments
  2. Permalink Structure
  3. Select WWW or Non-WWW Version
  4. Turn Off Discourage Search Engines From Indexing This Site

1. Delete Dummy Contents

Once you create your site on WordPress, you will be able to see there are some dummy pages, comments & posts got imported automatically.

First of all, delete all these things to prevent Google or other search engines to index them.

Go to the posts section and click on all posts. Here you will find the “Hello World” post. Simply click on trash. Now go to trash and delete it permanently.

Now go to the Pages section, Click on All Pages and delete “Privacy Policy” & “Sample Page.”

Now go to the Comments section, Click on All Comments, and Delete the dummy comment.

Once done with this part, now move on to the next part.

Choosing a permalink structure is important before you publish anything on your site because changing it later can harm your site.

By default, it’s set to Plain option and if you leave the default settings, permalinks of your site will look something like this:

https://blog.com/p=123

It’s not bad but Google also recommends short and descriptive URLs over the long and undescriptive URLs.

Google Recommends Short and Simple URLs

We recommend using Post name or Custom (If you want to categorize the content). These two options are the most readable. Just take a look at these three URLs:

Plain: https://example.com/?p=123

Post name: https://example.com/post-title/

Custom: https://example.com/category/post-title/

You can see the Post name and Custom URLs are more readable and descriptive. So choosing any one of them is more appropriate.

To change the permalink structure, Go to Settings > Permalinks > Choose Permalink Structure.

Set Permalink Structure for Better SEO Optimization of WordPress

3. Choose Between WWW vs. Non-WWW URL

It doesn’t matter whether you are choosing the WWW version or Non-WWW. But keeping the same version matters a lot.

Google treats WWW and Non-WWW versions as a different site. So changing the URL version once your site is old and live can harm your site.

You can actually choose this during WordPress installation.

But suppose you want non-www version and you have selected the www version during installation.

So to change that, Go to the Settings > General from your WordPress dashboard.

Now change the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL). Make sure to type the same version on both the options.

Set WWW or Non-WWW URL in WordPress

But wait, Suppose your site is accessible from both the versions. Now what to do?

Go to Google and type site: “your-domain.com” and site: “www.your-domain.com” one by one and check the number of results indexed on Google.

You should consider retaining the one whichever returns the more results.

Once done, now set up a 301 permanent redirect from one version to another.

4. Turn On Visibility of Your Site

There’s an option in WordPress to discourage search engines from crawling and indexing your site.

Leave this option enabled while you are working on your site because you don’t want search engine to index your site when it’s not ready.

However, many peoples forget to disable this option and this option block your site from appearing in SERPs.

To disable this option, Go to Settings > Reading and uncheck the box next to the “Discourage search engines from indexing this site” option.

Do not forget to click on the save changes option.

Turn on Site Visibility for Search Engines

Use HTTPS over HTTP

Google uses HTTPS as a ranking signal.

No wonder Google always prioritizes the privacy and security of its customers and they officially stated on the Webmaster Central Blog that “HTTPS is a ranking signal.

HTTPS is a Ranking Signal

That being said, it’s also necessary for your visitor’s security. An SSL certificate encrypts the connection between the browser and a web server.

It also increases the conversion rate. Now you might be thinking… How?

Whenever you visit a site using a modern browser and if your site doesn’t have a valid SSL certificate. In that case, modern browsers such as Chrome will show a warning like this.

Not Secure Warning

Do you really think people will put their personal and financial details after reading this warning?

Never.

So consider using HTTPS to boost your ranking and conversion rate.

Always use SSL for better security and SEO

Nowadays many hosting comes with free SSL and you just need to click a few buttons to install an SSL Certificate on your site.

If they are not providing Free SSL then you can buy one or you can use free SSL from Cloudflare or Let’s Encrypt.

Sidenote: Do not forget to redirect the HTTP version of your site to HTTPS. But it may lead to the Mixed Content issue.

Fix Mixed Content Issue

The mixed Content issue often occurs when you migrate your site from HTTP to HTTPS.

In simple words, Mixed Content means your site is still loading some resources over an HTTP connection.

It weakens the HTTPS and UX because even after having an SSL Certificate, your site will still appear as Not Secure beside your site URL even though it has HTTPS.

You can either fix it manually or you can use Really Simple SSL WordPress plugin to fix the mixed content issue.

Make Your Site Mobile-Friendly

Google has announced its Mobile-First Indexing update and since 1st July 2019, Google uses Mobile Version to crawl and index any page.

Mobile searchers are increasing daily. Around 54% of peoples use a mobile phone to browse the internet and this number is increasing daily.

So make sure that your site is mobile friendly and serve a better User Experience to the mobile users.

You can use Mobile-Friendly Test Tool to determine that your site is Mobile-friendly or not.

?>

[wpseo_breadcrumb]

Use Schema Markup

Schema Markup is not a ranking signal but it indirectly helps in SEO.

It helps your site to get rich results on Google and this increases the CTR. We all know, CTR is one of the ranking factors.

Here’s how a rich result look like:

Example of Rich Results in Google SERPs

Now to set up the schema for any posts/pages, click on the Rank Math Icon at the right top > Click on the Schema Icon > Choose Schema Type > Enter details.

Use Category & Tags Properly

A category is used to categorize the post into major categories.

For instance, you are a Food Blogger then you can categorize your blog post into some categories like Diet & Health, Seasonal, Cocktails & Drinks, etc.

And Categories are hierarchical means you can add sub-categories to a Category.

Suppose Cocktails & Drinks is one category then you can add sub-categories to it like Juice, Tea, Coffee, Smoothies, etc.

And a Tag is used to categorize specific terms.

For instance, Banana Smoothie, Mango Smoothie, Black Tea, Green Tea, etc. can be used as a Tag.

Categories & Tags make things easier for users to sort your content by any specific topic.

Generate XML Sitemap

An XML sitemap is like a blueprint of your site and it helps Search engine bots to crawl all the important pages, posts, images, etc. on your site more efficiently.

Search engine bots can discover, crawl, and index your site even if you don’t add a sitemap but submitting a sitemap helps search engine bots to find even deeper pages that are not linked anywhere on your site.

It’s good practice to have a sitemap for the SEO optimization of a WordPress site.

You can use your SEO Plugins to generate an XML Sitemap in WordPress.

Submit Your XML Sitemap to Google

Before submitting your sitemap to Google, you’ve to verify the ownership of your site in Google Search Console.

Follow this guide to Verify the ownership of your site in Google Search Console.

Once your site is verified, head over to the Sitemap option in Google Search Console.

Here you will be able to see it is asking your XML Sitemap URL. Just paste the URL and hit submit.

Submit Your XML Sitemap to other Search Engines

Apart from Google, there are many other Search engines that exist where you should submit your sitemap.

i.e. Bing, Yandex, Baidu, etc.

According to Statista, Bing has a market share of 5.53%, Yahoo stands at 2.83%, Baidu has 0.7%, and Yandex has 0.76% market share as of Jan 2020.

Search Engines Market Share Worldwide

There are almost 4.57 Billion Internet users all over the world. It means still millions of peoples are using other search engines not Google.

That’s huge. Isn’t it?

So make sure to submit your sitemap to other search engines webmaster tool.

Speed Up Your WordPress Website

Google officially announced Speed of a site as a Ranking Factor for mobile searches.

Here’s what Google said:

Optimize WordPress Site Speed for SEO Optimization for mobile searches

Apart from being a ranking factor, a slow loading site increases the bounce rate and decreases the conversion rate.

Look at the stats by Google on Bounce rate:

It clearly shows that how much a slow loading site can impact the bounce rate.

Now look at this stats by Google on Conversion rate:

Slow Loading Speed Decreases Conversion
Credit: Think With Google

Here’s a quick guide to optimize your WordPress site loading speed.

  • Use a fast Hosting
  • Use lightweight themes and plugins
  • Use latest PHP version
  • Use caching
  • Use CDN
  • Use lazy loading images plugin
  • Keep your WordPress site updated
  • Don’t upload videos, audio files, ext. directly to your site
  • Compress images before uploading
  • Optimize your WordPress Database

Ignore Keyword Cannibalization

Keyword Cannibalization means targeting the same keyword over and over again or in multiple posts.

It confuses the Google Crawlers that which post they should rank and many times none of the post ranks on Google.

WordPress SEO Plugins makes this easier as they show you whether you’ve targeted a keyword before or not.

Whenever you will target the same keyword, you will get this type of error.

If you’re getting this error, consider targeting another keyword.

Write SEO Optimized Article

Writing an SEO Optimized article means optimizing your content by following best On-Page SEO practices to rank higher on search engines.

Writing an SEO-friendly article contains, Using keywords in Title Tag, Meta Description, Headings, Sub-headings, Paragraphs, Proper Image SEO, Interlinking, Outbound Linking, etc.

Write SEO Optimize Articles

Suppose you’re writing about “WordPress Guide” but if you haven’t mentioned WordPress Guide anywhere in your content then how do the search engines crawlers will identify that your post is about that specific keyword?

Search engine crawlers are dependent on Keywords and synonyms of your article.

Quick guide to write an SEO Optimized Article:

  • Research Target Keyword
  • Use Targeted Keyword in Meta Title
  • Use Keyword in Headings & Sub-headings
  • Keyword in the URL
  • Use Short Paragraphs
  • Use Images, Videos, etc.
  • Use Targeted Keyword in the first 100 words of your articles

  • Rename Images before uploading it
  • Use Latent Semantic Keywords & Synonyms
  • Write Plagiarism Free Article
  • Link out to other trustworthy sources
  • Properly Internal Link your posts/pages

Read Detailed Guide: How to write an SEO-Optimized Article?

You might be thinking that you already set up the permalink structure so what’s the custom Permalink?

By default, WordPress dynamically adds the full title in the post URL that looks something like this:

Automatically Generated Permalink in WordPress
Automatically Generated Permalink in WordPress

There’s nothing wrong to use this URL but it looks ugly and it may reduce the organic CTR.

Sometimes we also use years on our title and it will add that year in the URL as well.

If you publish evergreen contents that are going to be useful 5 years later as well then it’s not a good idea to have a date, month, or year in the URL.

Why having the year in the URL isn’t a good idea and why it is bad for the SEO for your WordPress site?

If you have 2017 in your URL, it indicates users as well as Google that the article is not relevant anymore in the year 2020. It reduces traffic and rankings.

To change the default URL to the custom URL go to the Posts/Pages (Edit) > Document > Permalink > Enter Custom Slug.

Use Custom URL
Use Custom URL

We recommend using the targeted keyword in your Permalink because Permalink is a ranking factor.

Sidenote: Do not change the URL of an indexed post just to add or remove some phrases or add your keyword. But if you want to remove dates from the URL, 301 redirect the old URL to the new one.

Use LSI Keywords & Synonyms

Many peoples think that LSI Keywords and Synonyms are the same but they are completely different terms.

LSI Keywords are the related terms for any keyword. It helps Google Bot to understand your content more deeply.

i.e. You are writing about Apple, so how do Google Bot will understand that the post is about Apple Fruit or Apple Company?

How LSI Keyword Helps in Better SEO
How LSI Keyword Helps in Better SEO?

Here LSI comes into play. If your article is about Apple fruit, you will have some LSI keywords related to it such as healthy, fruit, vinegar, pie, etc.

But if your post is related to Apple company then surely it will have some related queries such as iPhone, Watch, Mobile, etc.

Therefore after crawling your content if Google Bots finds words like fruit, healthy, vitamin, etc. then they will understand that the post is about Apple fruit.

And if Google Bots finds iPhone, watch, mobile, etc. then they will understand that the post is about Apple company.

Apart from that Keyword Stuffing is a big issue. It means adding a keyword again and again on a page to rank higher for that keyword.

Long time back, Google used to rank articles based on the number of keywords. But now Google is becoming more and more smarter everyday.

If you do keyword stuffing, your page/post will never rank and your visitors will find it annoying to see the same keyword 100’s of times. Along with that, Google may penalize your site.

To tackle the issue we use LSI Keywords and Synonyms. It also helps your post to rank on many different keywords.

Read Detailed Guide: What are LSI Keywords? List of free LSI Keywords generator tools.

Optimize your Meta Title & Meta Description

Meta Title is a completely different term from H1 Tag. Meta Title is what users see on SERPs but H1 tag is what users see when they visit your site.

Here’s an example of Meta Title.

Optimize Meta Title to Improve CTR

And here’s an example of H1 Tag.

Optimize H1 Tag for better SEO in WordPress

As we all know, “First Impression is the Last Impression.”

When searchers find your site on SERPs and if your Title can’t catch their attention, they’re more likely to click on another result.

But if your Title is click-worthy, they will click on it and it will increase your CTR and help you to generate more visitors.

And in the same way, Meta Description is what a searcher sees below your Meta Title in SERPs.

Here’s an example:

Optiomize Meta Description
Optiomize Meta Description

It also helps you to increase CTR. And don’t forget CTR is a ranking factor.

But make your Meta Title & Meta Description click-worthy, do not clickbait because peoples will bounce back if you can’t deliver what you promised.

And it will indicate Google that your post is not Helpful that’s why most of the peoples are bouncing back from your site.

Optimize your Images for better WordPress SEO

Many peoples neglect Image SEO but Image SEO is an important part of overall WordPress SEO.

Nonetheless, Image SEO can help you to generate additional traffic from Google Image Search.

Here’s how you can optimize your Images for better SEO:

1) Rename Your Image Before Uploading: Rename any image and give it a relevant and descriptive name before uploading it to your site.

Here’s what Google said about Filename:

Rename your files before uploading
Rename your files before uploading

2) Use ALT Text: Google uses Vision Algorithm along with the content on a page to detect the subject of an image. And a descriptive ALT Text can help Google to better understand what your Image is all about and the subject of your image.

Apart from that, it helps those users who can’t see properly and use screen readers.

Use ALT Text for better SEO of Images
Use ALT Text

But don’t do keyword stuffing in ALT Text. Just describe the image.

Here’s the example by Google:

Don't do keyword stuffing in ALT Text
Don’t do keyword stuffing in ALT Text

Even if you’re using lazy-loading, ALT Text will help the search engine bots to identify the subject of your image.

3) Use High-Quality & Compressed Images: High-quality images are more appealing to users compared to blurry images.

So make sure to use High-quality images but don’t forget to compress those Images. Because Uncompressed images will slow down your site.

You can use Photoshop or Online Image compressor sites to compress your images.

4) Use Unique Images: There are many free stock photo sites on the internet. But many SEOs found that Stock photos don’t do well from the SEO perspective.

So always try to use Unique Images. You can use Canva to make graphics for free.

5) Add Images In Your Sitemap: Similar to pages/posts, add images in your sitemap. It will help Google to crawl and the images of your site easily.

Use Appropriate Outbound Link Attribution
Use Appropriate Outbound Link Attribution

Outbound linking to authoritative sites in your niche increases credibility. But linking to spammy sites may harm your credibility.

So make sure to use appropriate link attributions every time you link out to other sources.

Use “nofollow” attribution if you’re not sure whether the source is trustworthy or not.

But adding nofollow links to all links isn’t a good idea just to hoard PageRank. So if the site and content are trustworthy, don’t add the nofollow tag.

You might be thinking, Should you give dofollow links to every external site you link to?

The answer is “NO” because it passes link juice of your site and it’s not a good idea to pass high link equity to external sites.

Sidenote: Don’t link out to spammy sites or unrelated pages/posts just for the sake of SEO. Only link out if the other post will help your visitors.

Interlinking Helps in SEO
Interlinking Helps in SEO

Many peoples don’t actually know the value of interlinking. Internal links pass link equity from one page to another that helps the other page to rank well.

Interlinking means linking to content within your site or blog and there are plenty of reasons to use Interlinks.

  • It spreads the link equity of one page to another that helps a new page to rank higher.
  • Interlinking helps to reduce bounce rate and increases pages/session and dwell time on your site.
  • It helps with better User Experience (UX)
  • It helps Search Engine bots to crawl your site more efficiently

Here’s what Gary Illyrs (Webmaster Trend Analyst in Google) said about Interlinking:

Gary Illyes on Interlinking
Gary Illyes on Interlinking

Usually homepage has the highest link equity because homepage gets the most backlinks from external sites.

It means linking to your new content from your homepage spreads more link juice to your recently published content.

Broken Links are bad for User Experience and it also affects the SEO of your site negatively.

Therefore we recommend you to check for broken links on a regular basis (Weekly or Monthly).

You can use Google Search Console to check for the broken links on your site.

Just head over to Google Search Console > Sign in > Go to Performance > Click on Excluded > Check for 404 not found error.

Monitor 404 Error using Search Console
Monitor 404 Error using Search Console

You can also use Rank Math 404 Monitor to find out broken links where users are still visiting.

If you haven’t enabled the 404 monitor, do it by going to Rank Math > Dashboard > Enable 404 Monitor.

Monitor 404 Error in WordPress
Monitor 404 Error in WordPress

Now to monitor broken links, go to Rank Math > 404 Monitor. It will show you all the links where users are visiting but getting a 404 error.

Once you find all the broken links, either 301 redirect it to any relevant article or consider recreating deleted contents and use the same URLs.

Encourage Social Sharing

There’s no clear cut answer whether Social Signal is a ranking factor or not. Many SEOs believe that it’s a ranking signal but many SEOs believe it isn’t.

As confirmed by Matt Cuts (former head of Google’s webspam team) confirmed that Social Signal isn’t a ranking signal. Here’s the video:

However, it helps you to generate more social traffic and it can also help you to get quality backlinks if it performs well on social media. Of course, it should be link-worthy.

You can read more about it here: How Social Media Helps SEO by SearchEngineJournal

Let me give you a quick overview Why you should use Social Sharing Plugins:

  • It helps to generate more social traffic
  • It can help you to get backlinks
  • It helps you to build an audience.
  • Brand Awareness

Social Sharing Plugin Suggestion:

If you are on a tight budget you can use a free plugin otherwise you can go with a premium plugin.

For free, you can use the Grow WordPress Plugin and for the paid one you can go with Social Snap.

Grow gives you the option of only 4 social platforms (FB, Twitter, Pinterest & LinkedIn).

But if you want more, you have to go with Social Snap (Paid Version) as it lets you add around 30 social media networks & apps (FB, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Whatsapp, Telegram, FB Messanger, Skype, Blogger, etc.)

Prevent Your Site From Comment Spam

Unfortunately, you will get 10X more spam comments than the real comments and spam comments can harm the SEO and reduce the credibility of your site.
