One of the top questions asked of our Los Angeles WordPress Team is: “Which WordPress SEO Plugins should I use?” And since we’re asked this a lot, we thought it best to share with our friends.
Well, aren’t you lucky?
Simply posting content frequently to WordPress isn’t enough. Posting in WordPress is easy, but it requires a bit of science to:
- Attract people to your WordPress site
- Attract Google to your WordPress site
But we believe that your focus should be your content. And if you have great SEO plugins setup to work behind the scenes, you won’t have to put too much effort into attracting both people and Google bots.
Here are 3 Excellent WordPress SEO plugins that we recommend to help you achieve great results for your blog.
WordPress SEO by Yoast is great because you can use the snippet preview to see a rendering of what your post or page will look like in the search results, whether your title is too long or too short and if your meta description makes sense in the context of a search result.
SEO Friendly Images is a WordPress SEO plugin which automatically updates all images with proper ALT and TITLE attributes for SEO purposes. If your images do not have ALT or TITLE already set, SEO Friendly Images will add them according the options you set. Additionally, this plugin makes the post W3C/xHTML valid as well.
Strictly AutoTags is a WordPress SEO plugins that scans posts for words that could be used as tags and then orders them so that the most relevant words are added against the post. Just because a word appears in a post that is already in your list of tags does not mean that it should automatically be added against the article. Therefore the plugin orders all matching tags in descending order and picks only those that occur the most.
