Good Afternoon, I started the whole blog thing about a year ago today. Had some ups and downs of course. I decided it was time to take a step back and examine my sites to make sure they are performing at their best. SO I thought I would post and ask for a bit of help. For the record I did make many errors and fixed most of them and fixed a few more recently. I spent the last 3 months researching, reading and fixing what I could find wrong. I started this after I noticed my posts were not ranking very well at all. I've done a lot of reading on WP optimization as well + revisited my KW strategy (it was a total mess before I learned more about how to use them and how many) Here are the points: -Wordpress Site -Premium WP Theme -Paid Hosting -Paid Domain -Hand written articles and reviews by myself did not our source this (11 total) -no tags -no sidebar except for social media links -no calendar, archives or author page -Each article has one focus KW and 3 others (long tails + some normal) -Each article links to another of my articles (interlinking) -Each article links to outside sources -Each article links to social media and vice versa -Sitemap updated and submitted to google -Some links contain my keyword as anchor text Anything I missed? Hopefully Google crawls the site soon and the updates/fixes help. Hoping you SEO geniuses can help! Thank You! PS. Does anyone have recommendations on a SERP tracker? I tried long tail pro, and its ok but would like to explore my options. Looking for something that's got a one time payment.
