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.

Hello Community -

Up to now, most if not all, make money online business props have been around attracting the 1st time buyer (to your site) & having them purchase. And yes that is the 1st step, but when it comes to "scaling up" your business \income - how do you do that?

Thought Exercise:
1) Need to always find new people - well that's good when the pool is big (which internet is) &only; need them to buy 1x - well that's a short term objective ignoring other approaches. Esp when soooo many good people are becoming unemployed.

2) Need to get the 1st sale - "Hello - I trust you sale" --but that's only the start -- how do you "build" a relationship of future trust?

Note: due to new online data privacy laws -- "cookie based" tracking will be retired. FB pixel will be obsolete - so think & develop a "relationship" with our clients so you don't need a ton of new clients, but rather you help our client community solve their problems with the insight, guidance & patience they are seeking in a "search engine" driven world. Sales are driven by depth not by width..

Please provide comments, thoughts to discuss & explore as a community - all the best pax.

Well I don't mean to sound "cut throat" but since this type of work, affiliate marketing, depends on a consumer purchasing something, we will have to look for indicators of those people that are able to work from home and those still employed, who may still be able to travel to work.

We would have to find out what that type of consumer would like to buy. If you have looked at Amazon in the news lately, they have hired more people and are extremely busy!! Which means that there are people indeed who are still spending money freely!!

In response to your second questions, trust is built on the content and advice you provide plus the dependability of the supplier of the product.

If you site addresses "everything about xxx" you can be come the "go to" site for people to return to.

If you search and shop online do you go to the same website for a specific product niche? If so why? Questions like this will help you to understand how visitors feel when they go to your site and why they return.

We wish you much success.

I am a kind of man who enjoy sharing knowledge with other people, I think my niche could be something related to books, I have experience working as tutor, I can speak Portuguese, English, Spanish and a little bit of French. I have one question. Is there a niche about my preferences. I really love books and something related to tourism, but tourism right now is not a good idea, because we are face a global pandemic.
Reply
Mikael7 you must be very smart reading all those books. It's impressive you speak all those languages. I also love travel and tourism although I've not gotten to travel much except to places I moved to. And not very exciting places either. I can relate to what you said as I'm also not sure what to choose for my niche.

Perhaps you can try American students who love to study Portuguese (or any other foreign language).

Hello iam not done with this lesson yet I just got done looking @ the website set up? Anyone that can answer this I have my own domain so I can actually just use mine instead of the one given, or do I have to use the one given as well.

Hi, absolutely.

Is your own domain hosted at WA?
Reply
AbieAJ Premium Plus
If not, you have a choice either to transfer onto WA, or point.

To be able transfer, it has to be a .com / .net or .org Otherwise,

To update your domain DNS settings to point to WA. Here are the DNS settings.

ns1 . mywahosting . com (no spaces)
ns2 . mywahosting . com (no spaces)

These settings will be updated within your domain registrar (where you purchased your domain) after the transfer has taken place.

Hi Christina! About what you asked, I was wondering the same thing myself. But I don't have my own domain as of yet, however, I built several pages of an easy build free website using one of those free sitebuilders but not here on wealthyaffiliate. I'm wondering if I need to start all over again.

Even though you can always fix your pages, I think the earlier you fix mistakes the better. Asking questions definitely helps. Try getting those pages on Wealthy Affiliate. If you can't, I would start from scratch and perhaps follow some of the previous outline if necessary. I hope this helps!

Hey there, from what I understand, you have a store that looks ok but it's not making you money. The problem is in traffic. You need to get more traffic to your site to make more sales.

Wealthy Affiliate training is one of the best when it comes to getting FREE traffic from search engines and social media.

So my suggestion would be, keep the store, start a blog, and drive more traffic to your store.

I hope this helps :)
