It all began in the late 90's. I needed to place some information on my website. For different ways to look at the situation, please consider checking out: go here for more info. A record. A list of future events. I started with basic HTML. One page, with parts for each and every post. Simple.
Then I learned about 'websites' and 'blogging.' Being wise, I picked Wordpress, the most popular software. How smart, I thought. Anyone could set up a web site, In the event that you have the WYSIWYG editor going. Very democratic.
This prompted my to post my outermost thoughts; o-n London, politics, and personal gripes. As a web-master, I watched to determine Google index them. 'Here we go', I thought, 'quickly, my treasures of extrospection will participate in the ages.'
Except Google did not like my website. It would maybe not index much beyond the front page. Why, why, why?
Repeat information? I set it to put only one post per page.
I looked over what Google was indexing. Then I looked over the blog HTML. Quickly, all became clear.
- Wordpress was still duplicating my information, and
- It had no proper META-TAGS, and
- There is a good deal unnecessary HTML, and
- The format obscured the information.
I had a quick search on Google to find search engine optimization ideas. There's a plug-in 'head META information' ( http://guff.szub.net/plugins/ ). But I didn't use that, oh no.
For some reason, I got the idea a full style would be the ticket. I tried modifying an existing one myself. Better, but not perfect. Google was needs to catalog more pages, nevertheless they all had the same name. My missives to an uncaring world were being overlooked.
So I got someone else to accomplish one, according to my conditions, which were:
- Grab a META 'concept' from your post 'title';
- Grab a META 'explanation' from your website 'excerpts';
- Put a ROBOTS 'noindex' draw in non-content pages.
But that was not enough. For best SEO results you should change Wordpress brutally. You have to become _mean_ to it. My girlfriend found out about purchase here by browsing the Internet. You've to _man_ enough. Going To perrybelcherseo.com/ possibly provides suggestions you can tell your pastor.
I did a little of research and came up with to following tips.
WARNING: They're severe. If you have great ranks, making radical changes to-your URLs may possibly affect them. In my own case:
- Moving my blog http://www.ttblog.co.uk towards the root web directory,
- MOD_REWRITING its URLs, and
- Removing a 30-1 re-direct,
... caused my PageRank to visit 0. BUT, page indexing was unaffected.
This is temporary, as Google found it as 'suspect' behavior. My site had been radically changed by me.
Listed below are the tips, for real _men_, who will try looking in the face of web death and laugh:
1. Activate permalinks by visiting 'Options/Permalinks.' You could have allow Apache MOD_REWRITE on your website bill.
1a. Limit the permalinks code to just-the %postname% variable. Don't make use of the time codes. This keeps your URLs short.
2. Point your website in the uppermost listing possible. http://www.ttblog.co.uk is better than http://www.ttblog.co.uk/wordpress/
Therefore a normal article would seem like
In place of
3. Then install an SEO'd theme. The Link includes extra resources concerning the meaning behind this hypothesis.
My websites are increasingly being indexed beautifully. The Google 'site:' command returns all my articles, and little else.
For my next challenge, I turn it into an os, and take on Windows XP..
