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.

Heyy, so I had a couple of questions regarding selecting a niche. Please help me, thanks in advance : )
Is it possible to have a multi-niche website, where I can write content about more than 1 thing on the same site?
Also, does a niche have to focus on one particular thing or can it be a little more generalized but in the same category itself

Hi - only one niche on a website. Otherwise, you will confuse your audience and Google will not see you as an authority on your subject.

Take a look at my training on how to narrow down the pets niche to give you a better idea.

Hi,

No, a niche a website. Otherwise, you'd confuse Google and your visitors.

You niche has to be narrow in the beginning using low competition keywords until such time it starts gaining traffic, traction and authority, and then you may think to scale. Kindly let us know if you require further assistance.

Hi, yes you can however the learning curve would you steeper as communications would cease up, however it is possible. It can take 3 - 6 months to see any income. This is a long term commitment and takes months of consistent work

However you could remain a starter indefinitely and your siterubix subdomain remains valid for six months.

Actually I have too niches am basing on and this too niche is my favorite one is hanging out book camping niche and the other one is health and fitness product, so I really don't know the right one to go for at this moment am kind of confused so I really need a good feed back with this,

Hi,

Which of the two, you are passionate about more and can write lots of content. Healthy and Fitness product is something you would promote vs Health and fitness, however too broad and need narrowing down.

What type of fitness, to what group, what will you be writing about, what issues will you be discussing? Tips, training, frequency etc

Again the camping part is same why type where and to whom. who's going to benefit most from what you have to offer. Who's your target audience?

However it has got to be a niche a website, but would advice going with the one site for starters.

Thanks I really appreciate your concept on my answer but like your word am going to focus on the one I can right about and get a tagetable audience for the sales

Hello! Ok I surrender! Can I delete my website and start over?! I was getting along fairly well till I got to the Seo plugin, and then somehow I got off course.😪. So I guess I need to just start over. (Actually I need a niche). Ty anyone got a suggestion?

Peace, Larry.

Hope you figured out your AIOSEO plugin issue.

As for niche ideas. I am attaching a blog that may give you some ideas. If you are referring to your xxx.siterubix.com site YES you can delete it and start over.

Thank you for responding. Sounds like solid advice and now that I’ve stepped away for a few minutes I seem to have recovered some clarity. I don’t believe I have done anything that can’t be fixed. So I’m h he ping to review the last three videos and see if I missed something.
Thank again I do so appreciate your input. If you don’t mind I would like to follow you.
Respectfully,
Larry.

Hi , thank you for the response and the links I’m pretty sure that niche thing worked itself out!! We will see. I will for sure check those links out.

I’m still knocking around seo trying to figure out why there’s something sandwiched in my title that I thought I had deleted. Also trying to figure out where the two h2 tags are.... grrrr. Anyhow thank you so much!
Peace and prosperity
Larry

When you reference two H2 tags, do you ever use the Text tag in WordPress? It can look overwhelming at first but learning how to use that tab can save some time. You can put your own h2 tags in. Learning how is by looking at other H2 tags in the content body.

Did you delete all the prepopulated title page tag suggestions by AIOSEO? Is this causing the problem with your title?

If it's our own domain you will loose it, so perhaps you just need to adapt it a bit. If it's a siterubix then delete bit and start again
