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 "Save Changes" button.

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.

Thanks for recognizing the work that goes into creating a program like this. Kyle and a group of expert marketers in WA worked together on this.

It is most challenging to make the training doable and clear to everyone.

Your awareness of details will be a positive asset for you as you do our niche website.

Hi You need create them in Appearance > Menus. That's WordPress sites back office.

You can create a primary, top, footer and social icons menus.

Sometimes it can be in relation to the theme and what it allows however you would be able do at least a primary menu.

Not all WordPress themes have a footer menu.
When you log into back office ->appearance -> customize
click on menu then when in menu screen does menu locations show footer? If not your theme does not have a footer.

We use the free Astra Wordpress theme and it does have a footer menu capability.

is this one of my videos or Kyle's video?

It is Kyle's video. It looks like it depends on the WordPress theme design that we have chosen. The theme I've chosen doesn't have a footer...Anyway, it's okay.

Thank you.

Hey you all, my name is Lula. I am coming to the end of my third month here at WA, I benefitted greatly from the program, the training is second to none, thanks to Kyle. I am loving the community, they are so helpful and willing voluntarily to share their experiences and wisdom. I am doing my own niche as well as building up my MMO (make money online niche) though Kyle would say to only focus on ONE niche at a time. One thing I learned starting out is to figure out my niche, TARGET AUDIENCE and start building original content off the bat as soon as signing up to the platform because by far it is the bulk of my site and takes the longest to rank in the search engines. (rank not index)
Wishing you all well, continued success and a terrific day.

Hi you get a whole month .

For the first seven days you can test drive platform full premium access to see if it fits with your business needs and objectives.

WA is a learning platform that teaches you how to build a successful website for affiliate marketing. You need to read all the information, watch all the videos and complete each task as you are requested to do so. (source: Diane)

It is not a get-rich-quick scheme and requires months of consistent work. You are building a genuine online business for your future.

As and when you decide to become a Premium, your first month would be $19 then $49 monthly afterwards until you cancel

Or $49 first month then $99 monthly afterwards for premium plus + tier subscribers.

Meanwhile I'd ask as many questions as I want to get clarifications,

I am just going to say in your case; to know for sure. Ask Kyle and Carson; they are The Pros to ask.

Just click the magnifying glass up above; in the search bar; put in Kyle; and go from there.

You should do the same thing for Carson too.

I have been told they can be busy.

To Other Members; please don't take Offense; this is the best way I can see to help this new Member.

Hope this helps?

Hey Lyaad
When I paid the $19 I got a whole month, my 7 days full premium access was not deducted from my first payment month.
Wishing you well and a terrific day.

A very warm late evening from Scotland to all, Well as in the old day's people used to ask the Elders for advice for every minor problem they face, So since I'm also in the same boat as you friend are but I have my own way of thinking even if I'm 61 years old and that is that there's no harm in Dreaming Big so Frankly my goal is to make at least 200 Million out of this Gold Mine. But the only thing that everyone should understand is First you have to sacrifice and I don't mean that you JUMP of the Cliff what I mean is Seriously just PAY AND KEEP YOURSELVES FOCUSED ON lISTENING TO THE VIDEOS AND READING THROUGH EVERYTHING SINGLE WORD AND ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT we ALLarehere for a reason, And I'm sure there's nothing Impossible so just be patience and enjoy
with Blessing and lick from Scotland to all brothers
