  1. Such a comprehensive guide here, well done! I’m actually a big fan of plug-ins and probably more addictive to them more than I care to admit, however, they are almost essential to online success so I guess I can get away with searching through them all the time 🙂

    I like your point about duplicate content. Too many people think they can rank high and earn money from copy and pasting, when this is simply not the case. Thanks for pointing that out, I’m sure many newbie marketers will find this article helpful.

    1. Hello Brandon, and thank you for stopping by!

      I agree. Some of the newbies to blogging may not be serious about being in it for the long haul and may be tempted to “cheat” a bit by copying. However, there is so much information on the internet about absolutely everything, and combined with a personal passion about whatever the niche is, should make it easy enough to create original content.

  3. What were you trying to say “I have been reading that Google may rank you better if you them decide on your meta description”?

    1. Hi Max and thank you for pointing that out. I have fixed it!

      What I was trying to say is that letting Google decide what the meta description should be may cause a better rank for the post, since Google is the authority in this.

        1. Hi Max,

          It is still up to you. If you want Google to rank you for a specific keyword, then do the SEO steps to achieve this.

          However, I have read of people being ranked for other keywords in their post, keywords that they were NOT targeting, as well as ranking at the #1 spot for this other keyword. So what does that mean?
          It means that any of the words in our posts can potentially be keywords and you can rank for any of them! This is certainly something to think about.

          I am going to try this with my next review post, and see how long it takes to get ranked and where I end up amongst the competition.

          Cheers,

  4. I’ve been using WordPress for years now and it’s the most amazing platforms for blogs and general websites.

    It may be a bit daunting to get use to the interface at first, but once you pick it up it’s so natural to use and well set out.

    The SEO plugins are so useful for getting ranked on Google.

    1. Hello Vince and thank you for stopping by!

      I agree, and I suppose that is why it is so popular. It is also a very stable platform, and there are constant updates for plugins, themes, and the platform in general.

      Cheers,

  5. You talked about image optimizing and I already do it but should I need to compress images before I upload my site? I believe that can help even further. What do you think about it?

    1. Hello Furkan, and thank you for stopping by!

      I would not think that you need to do anything to images prior to uploading. EWWW IO does all the work for us, while increasing page speed. It also saves you storage space and bandwidth, and it will convert your images to the best file format. And you can optimize images that you uploaded prior to using EWWW IO.
