Taking the Drudgery Out of SEO
SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, can potentially bring you a constant stream of targeted and engaged visitors to your website. That makes it a “must do”. But while most people can gain an understanding of the basics of SEO, actually putting that knowledge into action can be a challenge for many small business owners and online entrepreneurs. In fact, it can be downright tedious. Having worked as a digital analyst for an SEO company for several years I can certainly understand that.
But, if you’ve chosen WordPress as the platform to build your site on (a smart choice), the task can be made a whole lot easier by installing an SEO “plugin”. There are several good ones available, including All-In-One SEO and Yoast. Another popular one that has been around a few years is SEOPressor, which has recently been updated to SEOPressor Connect.
SEOPressor Connect – A Plugin Mentor
SEOPressor Connect is essentially a “mentor” that guides you through the whole process of optimizing your site for the best possible search engine visibility.
How does it do that? By analyzing all your webpages in real time it gives you a blueprint for improving your results. This means you don’t have to worry about overlooking those important SEO processes. It also prevents you from over-optimizing your pages, which can give you worse results than not optimizing at all. Bottom line is you don’t have to second guess your SEO anymore.
SEOPressor Connect offers the ability to…
- Improve your search relevancy without needing to mess around with code (great for newbies and technophobes).
- Control how search engine crawlers navigate your site which gives you better indexation control. In other words, display search results the way you want.
- Manage your internal link structure effectively and effortlessly
- Optimize your site based on semantic big data analysis of billions of rows of data
- Alert you to issues which could be having a negative impact on your rankings so you can take immediate action.
New features in this latest update to Connect include…
- Robot rules
- XML sitemap generator
- URL redirection
- Local SEO
- Canonical links
- Site-wide link policy
- Automatic smart linking
If you’re new to the world of SEO some of these terms…if not all of them…will be foreign to you (SEO for WordPress is a good introduction). But don’t be overly concerned about this as SEOPressor Connect will guide you through the process. It will also keep you up to date on SEO trends and perform a site-wide audit to alert you to issues that need attention.
SEOPressor VS All-In-One SEO
Both of these WordPress plugins have been around a while and do an admirable job of optimizing your web pages. But with the update to Connect, SEOPressor adds some unique features such as as an LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing) keywords engine and the ability to prevent over-optimization which in my view give it the edge.
