Hiring a great developer and competent writers for your website is simply the first step in fully optimizing it for easy searchability. However, wordpress plug-ins for SEO are equally important to make sure that your website is easily searchable and highly attractive to new visitors.
Here are some wordpress plug-ins we recommend for your website which you can work on optimizing today:
Easy Table of Contents
Users who want to visit your website will probably only be looking at a few key sections tailored to their needs. This plug-in will help them immediately find the content they need to read using easily accessible links.
How does it work? The plug-in automatically generates a table of contents based on content headings that you have on your page. You can even customize the style of your table using the plug-in’s dashboard settings.
This is one of the most popular plug-ins on the list, and for good reason. Yoast uses a detailed SEO checklist in its programming that can help you determine whether your content is fully optimized or not.
Its options usually flash green if they’re optimized enough, and red is flashed if you need to edit some parts before publishing. Examples of optimization points Yoast can scan for you include checking if all your images have the appropriate alt tags and scanning your meta descriptions to see if they’re optimized.
Some additional features include:
- XML Sitemaps functionality
- Technical Wordpress SEO
- Page analysis tool
The great thing about this plug-in is you don’t need to be an expert in SEO to know how to use it to the best of its ability. All you have to do is plug in your article topic and SEO Squirrly can automatically generate keywords for you to follow. As the plug-in gets greener, the more your article gets optimized in real time.
But what if you’re already using another plug-in and want to switch to SEO Squirrly? No need to worry about settings, because it imports all your old data from your previous plug-in. SEO Squirrly also generates content reports which you can already share to others in your organization.
SEO Optimized Images
Simply adding photos to your article isn’t enough to make sure it’s fully optimized. This plug-in helps you check if the proper alt attributes and title attributes are inserted into your image content, so it helps your article rank more efficiently on Google.
Broken Link Checker
As you keep adding content to your website, it might be harder for you to monitor which links are still stable and which ones have become broken. Adding this plug-in will help you check which links are broken on your site, so you can deal with them appropriately.
Broken Link Checker also gives you the option to give the broken link a different appearance on your website or the ability to stop search engines from following the broken link.
Has Google Analytics always felt a bit difficult to navigate for reports? If your answer is in the affirmative, MonsterInsights is the plug-in for you.
Instead of going through Google Analytics manually, what MonsterInsights can do is to present all the data in a more user-friendly interface. Here are some topline insights you can easily access via MonsterInsights:
- See how often people search for your website and interact with the content
- Monitor the most visited pages on your website
Rel NoFollow Checkbox
Affiliate links matter when it comes to citing important sources for SEO articles, but you have to manage these links effectively so they don’t hurt how your website ranks on Google. By using this plug-in, you can automatically add “rel nofollow” to all your external links so searchability is still your own, and not theirs.
