Optimize Your Focus Page:
Yesterday you took the necessary steps to ensure you have a good keyword to match your focus page.
Today you’ll use the SEO Live Assistant from Squirrly SEO to optimize that page to 100%. Get perfect SEO text on the page. Text that will be great for both Humans and Search Engines. That’s the genius behind Squirrly’s SEO Live Assistant feature.
Go to Edit the page. You’ll see the SEO Live Assistant in WordPress – Edit Post, in the right side of the screen.
Just place your keyword in.
Then follow the guidance from the SEO Live Assistant.
Pages optimized to 100% get an increase in traffic of +285%, compared to pages which were not optimized. Study made for over 49,000 sites using Squirrly SEO. However, this is not everything. There’s more you can do, and Focus Pages section shows you everything you need.
Google Search Console:
Many WordPress sites don’t get indexed at all, or don’t get indexed properly because they are not added to Google Search Console, and Google doesn’t know about them.
In case you haven’t used Google Search Console before, follow only the first 2 mini-goals from tomorrow’s recipe, then come back here and finish what you have for today. Just do first 2 mini goals then come back.
Also, since you’ve just optimized your Focus Page, you need to tell Google search console (GSC) that you’ve done this step. Otherwise, Google’s algorithms won’t “know” that you’ve updated your page with great optimized content.
- if you don’t have Google Search Console yet, make sure you create an account at GSC and that you add your website, so it starts getting indexed by Google.
- if you already have GSC, then make sure you make Google Search Console re-index your focus page. place the entire URL (permalink) to your page into the big search bar at the top in the GSC interface. Then look at the buttons. One of them is used to tell Google to re-index the page.
You’ve made some important steps today in the right direction.
You’re well on your way to Better Ranking now.
