(Empower Network blogs are setup to place the post name into your permalink. If for some reason your permalink does not put the title of your post at the end of the permalink and puts numbers instead you will need to change your permalink settings. If you do not know how to do that please send in a support ticket and they will change the setting on your Empower Network blog for you.)Use An H1, H2 and H3 Heading TagTo do this we will first refer to the instructions from Bootcamp Day 2 for displaying the full set of editingbuttons for the Visual tab.

  • 3. By default Wordpress hides some of the options. If this is your first time logging in it will look like this:Open up the 2nd row of editing tool buttons by clicking on the button at the end that shows rows of dots.It will say “Show/Hide Kitchen Sink” when you hover over it.It will now look like this:Here is what you need to do to create your keyword within an H1, and H2 and an H3 heading.First, copy your prewritten post into your Empower Network blog (as a precaution you will always wantto write and save your blog post on your computer first to safeguard against issues such as a loss ofinternet connection which could lose your blog post.)You will want to copy your post into your blog by using the “HTML” tab and then switching over to theVisual tab before formatting your post.Here is how you will make the text an H1 Heading:FIRST – The text that you use for your H1 tag will need to be a reworded version of your title, and will bethe first line in the body of your post.SECOND – Highlight the line of text. Click on the editing option that says “Paragraph” and then choose“Heading 1”. Copyright 2012 by Empower Network LLC
  • 4. Repeat these steps for an H2 Heading and an H3 Heading. Make each heading be a reworded variationof text. Don’t use the same line of text for each heading or your SEO efforts will look automated and losevalue with your readers.Your text for the H1 & H2 Headings will appear like this: Copyright 2012 by Empower Network LLC
  • 5. The H3 Heading will look like this:The higher the number, the smaller the heading text will be.On Page SEO Within PicturesBootcamp Day 2 covers how to insert pictures and how to also insert what is called an ALT tag. For thepurpose of On Page SEO your picture title and alternative text (ALT tag) need to be the keyword youchose.When uploading a picture include your keyword in the fields where “My Keyword” is shown in the imagebelow: Copyright 2012 by Empower Network LLC
  • 6. Attention To Your KeywordsShow that your keywords are important by using bold, italic and underline editing options at least oncefor each editing option.Google reads the actual source code of your post and sees the HTML code for these editing options,which tells Google that those words are important.This is how “My Keyword” looks in bold, italic and underline within your post:Length Of Post & Amount Of KeywordsThe length of your post should be 500-700 words long. And the amount of times your keyword needs toappear within your post has been argued to vary from 1%-3% depending on which SEO expert you listento. The typical guideline is to have at least 1% keywords within your post and no more than 3%. Thiswould equal at least 1 keyword for every 100 words.Your blog post will tell you how many words you have in your post at the bottom left of the post bodyhere:In this example this post would need to have the keyword in it a minimum of 6 times and no more than18 times.

  • 7. Higher than a 3% density for keyword placement is considered “keyword stuffing” and is actuallypenalized by Google.Also, always place your keyword in the FIRST and LAST sentence of your blog post.Internal LinkingLink your blog post to another page or post within your blog using your keyword as the “anchor text”.Highlight your keyword within the blog post and then click on the chain link icon in the first row ofediting buttons.The button will look like this:Enter the link to the post or page on your site and put the keyword of the target site in the Title field likethis: Copyright 2012 by Empower Network LLC
