We are now getting into the FUN stuff! Search Engine Optimization, also known as SEO!

You have your website in place and now you want to make it SEO ready so that search engines can find it. Our goal is to get ranked in the BIG 3 engines, Google, Bing & Yahoo.

Do note that our focus is going to be primarily on Google though as they own over 70% of all search traffic, and over 95% of mobile searches.

But why do you want rankings in the search engines? Simple...

Website Rankings = Targeted Traffic = Revenue!

The rankings are the first step in creating an online revenue stream.

Today we are going to walk you through the set-up of a Wordpress plugin that is going to do a lot of the "dirty work" for you and will take care of the optimization of all your website pages/posts, meta tags, and other aspects that search engines look for when ranking your site.

I have created a "Setting Your Website Up for Search Engines" video walk-through of this training and please follow along as it will add a lot of clarity to how SEO works, but also how to install the All in One SEO plugin.

 

Task 1: Set-up All in One SEO on your site

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a very important aspect of any website's success.

In this task we are going to be setting up a plugin that makes our website code (the stuff behind the scenes of our website) friendly for search engines like Google so they can index and rank our sites properly. This is going to be very powerful for your website content getting ranked in search engines going forward, so DO NOT skip this task.

Since you activated the All in One SEO within the last lesson, you should see the "All in One SEO" item with your main menu now in your Wordpress back office. If you mouse over that menu icon, a sub menu will pop out (see below).


Simply click the "General Settings" link. This is where you will be going to set-up your SEO settings for your website.

The main section you are going to be updating here is the Home Page Settings section. There are two sections that you will be updating there:

  • Home Title - This is the title of your website that will show up when you get ranked in Google and other search engines. This won't actually show up on your site.

    You want this to reflect the actual title of your website that you created with your site, but also add something to make it a bit more captivating.

    Ideal Length: 40-60 characters, keep under 60
  • Home Description - This is a description of what your website is about and how it will benefit people. Don't overthink this part, you just want to be descriptive as to what your site is.

    Ideal Length: Under 160 characters

Although there are a TON of other settings, you are not going to need to update any of these at the moment, not for SEO purposes.

When you are done updating your Home Page Settings, scroll down to the very bottom of the page and click the "Update Options" button (as shown below).

Upon doing this, you are done. Your website is set-up and SEO READY! :)

A few important points things to take note of here about All in One SEO:

  • You DO NOT need to "Upgrade to Pro". The free version is more than adequate for your needs.
  • You won't see these changes to your actual site. The work is done behind the scenes within your websites HTML code. It is making your code friendly for search engines.

Awesome, your website is all set-up for SEO now! As you build out your new pages/posts, they will automatically be optimized for Google and other search engines. If you have any questions about the set-up process, leave them in the comments below and we will give you a hand.

In the next lesson we are going to be discussing KEYWORDS, the root of all of your rankings, traffic and success online.

Quick doubt regarding the grammatical sense subject. For example if the list displays tips lose belly fat and I do a search for tips TO lose belly fat but the list keeps giving me results with tips lose belly
fat without the TO.... Should I discard and keep digging for keywords that make perfect grammatical sense?

You want to use keywords that make grammatical sense, this will do wonders for your rankings - Google wants content that is written for people, not for bots.

When I published my Privacy Policy page, it looks fine in the editor but the actual page on my site shows several other headings (with no text under them) that I do not see in the editor view. There are several interspersed throughout, as well as several in a row toward the end of the Privacy Policy page, that look like this (but bold and spaced out):

Your contact information
Additional information
How we protect your data
What data breach procedures we have in place
What third parties we receive data from
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

Am I doing something wrong here?

Try closing out all of your tabs online including WA, then reboot your computer, and clear your cache, that may help

Hi - there might already have been a privacy policy included in the theme when you built your website. That could be the one you are looking at, rather than the one you published. Check to see if there are two.

Sometimes this happens when you copy and paste when the content you copied and pasted is not using the same fonts as your website editor

Jeff

Some WordPress themes you can change your fonts and some ou have no control especially the free themes most of us use

Even though Amazon is a big name for beginners you really need a huge amount of traffic to earn a substantial income from them, they pay only 4-6% which is very low commissions.

I recommend everyone do a search with your niche high paying affiliate programs to find the programs in your niche that is going to be worth promoting if you are interested in earning more than some extra money now and then

Thank You
I appreciate you commenting, I just dislike people wasting their time with Amazon. They are always changing their associate commissions and rules almost daily, and when you are the new website online getting their required sales is a real challenge

What Amazon will do is send their associates changes as they change the rules, I was exaggerating about it being every day but it is very often and that is why many people can't keep straight Amazon Associates policies
