PAGE 2 – Do you have a strategy for posting content?

PAGE 3 – Use Save Draft instead of Publish

PAGE 4 – How saving drafts will help your posting schedule

PAGE 5 – Why I do not recommend setting a publishing date in WordPress

You are probably already familiar with how to go about posting in WordPress but I would like to share with you today how I go about publishing my website content that has helped me to rank higher and quicker in Google. If you are not already aware about the importance of a posting schedule in regards to better Google rankings, then make sure to check out the training on it, see link below.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/how-to-im...



QUALITY IS BETTER THAN QUANTITY

When we first start building our internet businesses we all start writing and posting content almost every single day. Within a week we can have several pages of content and within a month close to 20. But this way of posting is not really a wise and sustainable way to follow. Having a quantity of pages on your website is not always going to help your website rankings.

However having quality written pages will help you. Matter of fact you could post 10 quality pages and have your website rank higher than if you had posted 20 average pages within the same time frame. Quality is always better than quantity. And here is another thing to consider when you begin posting content.

Are you going to have enough content to be able to publish every single week for at least 52 weeks straight? There is 52 weeks in a year. At the rate you are posting now, can you keep that up for 52 straight weeks? I bet your answer would be no. This is why you need to come up with a strategy for publishing your website content and I am going to show you an easy way to do this.

NEXT UP = Prepare your strategy for the next 52 weeks.

Great post and advice!
Saving articles as the draft is a great idea for content creation!
What is a good advice as well as the advice about posting on same time during the week?

Thanks for sharing!

To clarify when content is written the save button is pressed, my option from content is either save or publish. The status from what I can see can’t be changed until you transfer content page by pressing the publish page to get to the dashboards.
Have I missed something ?

That is correct in Site Content you can Save or Publish. Once you Publish you can edit and change things but don't forget to Update.
Reply
Dunvant Premium
Another top person gives training that before you publish go to draft and put your pictures interlinks etc and then publish. that was what I was querying because from my content I have to publish straight away and then add all the bits.

the purpose of saving it is for the future purpose only and if not publish it right away. Refining it to a better structure is far better.

Save until you finish writing your page/post. I always put in my images and links there too. It's easy enough to edit after publishing. One think I am not completely sure of is if the images manually uploaded are compressed. That is also easy to handle. I use Leoemery's method (This hurts your site big time) to compress.

Now you can not edit in SiteContent. If you open your post up there you get the message 'Published: Edit Here'. This takes you to WP. Just remember what you do in edit is NOT going to end up in your SiteContent copy. (Hopefully they will add this in the future.)

Now if you haven't put your links and images in or you need to edit them (and you will to get the correct position and size) as soon as you go and view in WP put the post back into draft. Then no-one will see it until you republish. I have attached a shot to show you where to do this.

When you do this do this don't forget to hit OK.

Save button is only saving content within SiteContent, and publishing button is publishing button to your site!
If the article is only saved you may come back whenever you want and re-edit the article as you like!

Please one other thing if you dont mind my asking, in using social medias, are we allowed to post in other platforms like all this Q&a, Quora, reddit platforms and even on make money online groups on fb?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
WA removed the button because people were using it too much, creating a spam-like situation.

You can post in other areas but I would suggest that you do not early on. If you post in too many areas and too often, you will be labeled as a spammer.

Thank you Boomer. This training resonates and makes a lot of sense to me. I am definitely in the quality vs. quantity camp. I'm still new enough that I'm trying to sort out conflicting advice. Bootcamp training clearly states that those who are most successful post every day. I have never been able to accomplish this and don't see that changing. I'm too slow and/or too much of a perfectionist to ever make that happen. I spend a lot of time reading, researching, writing, reviewing, etc. before I post. My site has been up for 3 months and I have 22 pages and posts of content which is about 1.5/week. I would like to believe it is quality content but I may be biased :)

I'm finally getting to my real question. Is the penalty for inconsistent posting greater than the penalty for not having enough content? Does it make sense to try to front-load and get as much (quality) content as possible out there now and then draw a line in the sand where consistency becomes more important. Did you post more often when you were new to this and then switch? I need to see some progress. I'm not talking about making money. That's so far out on the horizon it's pointless to dwell on now. I'm talking about traffic and that requires Google trust. I pray for searchers who are specific. Quoted searches for my keywords show up on page 1 or high on page 2. No quotes (the norm) and I'm out there in the nether lands somewhere. The only traffic I get now is from my Pinterest Board and it's not much.

Sorry for the book but I'm really struggling with the most effective way to approach this. I appreciate any advice you have.

When I first started I posted a lot of content at first and then after about 6 months I scaled back to about once per week. I only did this because I was getting better rankings and kept asking for comments because getting comments is also the same as adding new content which you do not have to write and Google still rewards you for it.

Because your website is only 3 months old, I wouldn't expect for you to see much in the way of search engine rankings right about now. The 6 month mark is a good time to start seeing some progress. Just keep posting quality content as regularly as you can.

I feel so silly. I have a blog I started back in 2008. I started removing posts from it and adding them to a website here. Then I read this. So I deleted it. Would it be a good idea to just start posting to it again?
Reply
GlenPalo Premium
I am not sure I follow. Are you posting to your 2008 blog still?

I have an older website that I still maintain. I also have a new site here on WA. The search engines like the older sites. So I have taken what I have learned here and applied it to the older site.

Robert is spot on with scheduling and publishing posts.
Reply
upsgirl Premium
GlenPalo's process of adding to his older site is a great idea.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
I hope you were not add exact content from there to to new website. If you have an older website then build it up if you want. If not leave it the way it is and write NEW content for the website you have here. You definitely do not want to copy content from there and place it in your site here. That could seem like duplicate content.
Reply
Kipps Premium
If your old post from the old site is already indexed and given high ranking by Google and you love to maintain that status, it is better to leave it as it is. But then you want it also in your new WA-based webpage. What to do? Just re-write the same post from the old website using other wording and phrases to avoid penalizing by Google according to its anti-plagiarism Act. In this way, you can maintain your old post and its good ranking and at the same time slowly gain ranking for your new page here at WA as well.
This I have learned it from Kyle somewhere, I forget exactly where, sorry. But hope this helps.

Thanks for this training and the other training of you that are extremely helpful.
I have some questions.

Question 1.
Someone said after Publishing you can go to Status and change it into Draft. Is it correct? Please help me clarify. I am confused.

Question 2
And after we press publish, all our editing, tweaking should be saved by Update. Correct? Then can we also press publish instead of Update? What is the different?

Question 3
When we save our pages/posts as DRAFT Google will not find it and not give us any ranking?

Sorry for the many questions.
Hope you are not upset.
Thanks in advance.
Cheers,
Kipps

Q1, Yes you can but why would you? If you accidentally published it maybe I can see doing this, but not sure why people would want to do this.

Q2, Once you click Publish that button is replaced with Update. There is no way to publish content more than once.

Q3, Correct

You can use that part of webmaster tools, Carcol, to basically get Google to "reindex" the page you chose (or index it for the first time if it is a new page). This is mostly for if you are impatient like me. ;)

You are welcome Lucinda!

As Deidre said, you do not have to do this. But if you do not want to wait for the 4 days for Googlebot to come and index your content, by doing a Fetch as Google and Submit to Index, your content will be indexed within hours.

I do this because I want my content to go live as soon as possible. Being that it only takes me about a minute to complete the process of getting my content indexed into Google, I do the "Fetch" after every content I publish live.

If you would like to learn more about "Fetch as Google" read pages 4 and 5 of my other training on it, and watch the Google video. Matt Cutts explains why Fetch as Google, Submit to Index is beneficial.

I've recently started to add pages under my main page Product Reviews. Didn't find the safe to draft button that I have become used to when creating Post content.

The result is a page that got published prematurely. Got stuck on best way to publish an extensive table. Didn't like the look Table Press gave me, and am now studying a work around I found in Leoemery's training on creating a downloadable link.

This is a constant learning process isn't it?

I post every 7 days, once per week on a Wednesday. If I should write one or more pieces of content prior to Wednesday, I save them in Draft and then when Wednesday comes I either post one of them or write something new to post. Once per week is much easier for me now with all of the other things I do.

It is the best way I have found to keep a consistent schedule and for posting more quality content. When/If you can have 2 or more pieces of finished content ready to go and sitting saved in draft, I find that it makes it less stressful when the time comes in my posting schedule to post new content.

Instead of rushing to get something out and put out something of poor quality, I can take my time with it and publish one of the finished pieces of content I have saved. Then once I finish perfecting the current piece of content, I save it as draft to publish at a later date.

Reply
boomergp08 Premium
When our websites are new, I do advocate publishing more than one page or post per week. But after our websites have about 15 to 20 pages and posts is when I switch to the more desirable weekly publish.

I feel that is a more sustainable way forward because you can take a little more time to produce some quality content rather than pumping out quick lower quality content. There is no need to rush your content live. I would prefer to take my time and put out some quality content.

Reply

If you still have a passion of the one you have, then stay with the same website. You can always revive it.

Before you do, write up some content and save them as drafts. Then once you have a few pieces of content ready to go, write another piece of content and publish it.

Then a week later publish another piece of content, either a new one you write or one of the pieces of content you have saved as a draft and continue from there.

I do not use mobile when using Fetch, I always use desktop.

And for the purpose of getting your content indexed into Google, you want to use Fetch only.

You would use Fetch and Render when you have debugged a problematic piece of content and want to make sure Googlebot cannot find the error anymore.

I had heard that a person needs to have about 200 pages and posts before they are ranked on the first page. That's over whelming to me. I was setting a goal to be there by the end of August. But that is a lot of posts and I know that I can't do that. I like the idea of 1 or 2 per week, that is more doable for me, and still be consistent. Thanks for the training! Cindy

What you heard Cindy was wrong. You do not need 200 pages and posts to be ranked on the first page of Google. I have only 60 and 17 of my pages/posts are on Google page 1. You just have to follow the guidelines for better SEO, but having 200 pages/posts is not one of them.

Just write quality content with good keywords in the appropriate places, post this content on a consistent weekly basis, and eventually you will get higher rankings. By using Save Draft you can save finished content and then select when you wish to publish them should you not have something new to publish.

Thanks so much Robert for responding! It is really good to know that it isn't 200 pages/posts that I need, more the quality content, keywords and the consistency. Thanks for setting me straight. I really appreciate that!

No problem Cindy! The 200 count only relates to a level of content that a website has when it is considered to be a well established website. It has nothing to do with rankings at all. I hope whomever told you that does not tell anyone else that because that is flat out wrong and can discourage others from moving forward.

Love it Robert, especially planning lots of posts in draft to publish at least once a week. Thank you.

You are welcome. - Saving a bunch of finished content as drafts to be published later one by one is a less stressful way to keep adding content to your website.

Thanks, learned again from you:) Sometimes I want to change a whole published page/post, then I set it on visuability private again, make the adjustments and put it on air when finished

You are welcome Loes. Once a page has been published and you want to make minor changes, you could set visibility to private, that is fine.

However if the changes you are making will change the page title and thus the permalink, changes a majority of the keywords, and most of the image, that is not good for your SEO.

Once you publish a page and Google indexes it, you should not make any changes beyond updating with added content. Remember, Google indexes ALL of your content so you do not want to remove much.

Thank you for this tutorial Robert. I have been publishing then realizing I made mistakes and changing and publishing again. All this more than once!

Thank goodness my site is in its very early stages. I'm going to use the .draft from now on.

You are welcome Emile. This is why using Save Draft is important because if you publish and then find some major mistakes that require you to change the title or some of the keywords, you can make the changes before you publish.

There is absolutely no reason for you to publish new content before you know it is what you actually want to go live. Because posting content live and then changing it, especially after it has been indexed into Google, is not good for SEO.

Great lesson. I was not doing this, but I will now. perfect! Thank you so much.
How do I submit from my Webmaster tools to google for indexing purposes?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You are welcome Dorian. Using Save Draft has many benefits. Another one I didn't mention is that if you have to stop working on your content before you are finished, you can just save draft. Then start on it at another time.

As for submitting your content to Google to get it indexed within hours, follow the training and watch the video I provided in my training from a couple of months ago. Look at pages 4 and 5 of the training.

How do you know what your keywords are ? And are these important ?

Keywords are very important and you choose them.
You can use the WA keyword tool or Jaaxy.
ROCK ON!

Depending on what your niche is you will have to use the WA Keyword Tool to research which keywords are the best for you to use. You cannot rank well in Google and the other search engines without keywords so they are very important.

You are welcome Vanessa. GWT is a free tool that we all must use in some way or another. It has a ton of benefits, even many I haven't even used yet.

But as for getting my content indexed into Google within hours instead of the normal time frame of days, yeah, I religiously use it after every published page/post.
