In WordPress this is important, because it defaults other important elements like URLs and H1 headers. 9 Web Savvy Marketing & iThemes Media LLC Copyright © 2016, All Rights Reserved v  Choose a 3tle that is relevant to what the content discusses v  Make sure the 3tle is unique and does not duplicate another page/post 3tle v  Keep the 3tle short so it is easy to read and digested v  Include the keyword phrase, but do not repeat it v  Use keyword phrase towards the start of the page 3tle if possible v  Don’t force in geographical references thinking this helps with local search Pro Tips for Optimization

Search spiders pay aUen,on to the words used in the h1 tag as it should contain a basic descrip,on of the page content, just as the page ,tle does. While most WordPress themes will automa,cally create this for you, I see a lot of websites that forget to use the H1 or include mul,ple H1 headers per content piece. Pro Tips for Optimization

  14. 14. Keyword Variations 14 Web Savvy Marketing & iThemes Media LLC Copyright © 2016, All Rights Reserved v  Brainstorming v  Compe3tor websites v  Google related searches at the boEom of a search page --> v  Google Keyword Planner tool for Adwords v  Google autosuggest phrases when searching for the phrase A keyword varia,on is simply an alternate phrase for a focused keyword.

Here is Google’s verbiage on this report within their help sec3on: The number of internal links poin3ng to a page is a signal to search engines about the rela3ve importance of that page. If an important page does not appear in this list, or if a less important page has a rela3vely large number of internal links, you should consider reviewing your internal link structure.

  21. 21. Common Mistakes to Avoid Crappy Content People write content to fill white space. Don’t do it! You need to provide real value to website visitors. You have to have something really good to resonate with readers. No amount of SEO will help bad content, so start with something solid. Write good content and you will be rewarded for it ten fold. You’ve done your keyword research and you’ve wriEen your content. When you look closely at the content, you realize you used varia3ons of your keyword phrase (good) but totally forget to use the actual keyword (bad). Take the 3me to go back through your content and weave in the right focused keyword. Be careful about what you read on the internet and watch ar3cle dates. Un3l you are confident with your SEO knowledge, refrain from op3mizing your pages and posts. Take the 3me to learn best prac3ces. And don’t try something unless you have a solid grasp of the tac3c and the posi3ve or nega3ve ramifica3ons that may result.
