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 85% 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 The SEO Framework plugin.

 

Task 1: Set-up The SEO Framework 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 The SEO Framework within the last lesson, you should see the "SEO" item with your main menu now in your Wordpress back office. If you click on that menu icon, it will open up the plugin settings.


This is where you will be going to set-up your SEO settings for your website.

The main "Layout" section you are going to be updating here is the Homepage 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 Homepage Settings, scroll down to the very bottom of the page and click the "Save Settings" 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 The SEO Framework:

  • You DO NOT need to "Upgrade". 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.

Hi
I created my website today. I followed the steps of activating the SEO plug-in and deleting the default settings. On the website, there was a message stating that the theme had recommended plug-ins that I need to install. Should I go ahead and install these plug-ins, should I dismiss this message, or should I wait?

Thanks in advance.

I would wait with installing them.
Use the theme alone first and see if you like it.
Then do a search later and find out what these additional plugins recommended do.. You amy find you do not intend to use that functionality.

wow, well my website is up and running and I am ready to rock and roll. I have a very good feeling about this. If anyone at this point is having doubts try and think positive I mean I chose poker for my chosen niche and have found quite a few affiliate programs within that niche so try do a google search like I did I simply typed "poker affiliate programs" It has given me a boost to know that this is actually going to happen.

However please be aware for affiliate program you need content and TRAFFIC.

They would check those elements prior approval.

Also you need follow up and adhere to the individual programs terms and conditions. Each program is different.

However, good effort starting out.

I'm aware that it's important to niche down, so I wanted to ask, is belly fat loss a good niche? I wanted to make a few posts on best exercises for belly fat loss, then a few posts on keto diet and how it helps with belly fat loss (also how to do the diet correctly, why someone might not see a change in their belly fat on this diet etc), a few posts on carnivore diet and how it could help for belly fat, and a few on yoga and how it could with belly fat and so on and so forth. Would that be a good idea or no?

ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche.

For example belly fat loss or Keto dieting or yoga exercises for beginners.

I'd ask myself

Am I passionate and genuinely interested in my chosen niche, as I I'd be expected to write lots of content, it would motivate me to update blog with succinct original content worthy my visitors week in week out.

Would I be writing about it in a years time or two or more

Who would be my target audience, who would benefit most from what I have to offer.

Thank you for the response, I greatly appreciate it! Belly fat loss is definitely something I want to make content on, but I am struggling to think of content I can come up with regarding belly fat loss besides "5 exercises to help reduce belly fat".

You may consult with https://answersocrates.com/ - You can search what real people are asking as in Questions, Prepositions, Comparisons, in the past, letters and query. It is also great if someone wants to write a thorough research based article.

Other sources include https://Quora.com, https://Answers.com, https://AnswerThePublic.com, YouTube search engine etc.

You may research other peoples work however all content must be originally written in your own words.

Okay so your objective is to help who loose belly fat by exercise and diet. Is it the same for both sexes and all ages? if not choose your audience.

You can find questions people ask about it using answersocrates.com

You will be writing posts for people to read on your website - who would be the audience you wish to write for and help? You will be writing both informational posts and product reviews. What kind of questions would people be asking about your niche that you can help them with as well? Your informational posts are important to grow your traffic.

Choose a distinct purpose to start your niche for a specific group of people.
