  2. Keep the Slug Short and Keyword Rich :- WordPress automatically generates the slug or the URL your blog post will be displayed on. But its usually pretty long and may contain irrelevant words which are useless from SEO point of view. Its advised to keep length of the slugs to 3-5 words and use keywords related to that blog post. Make it short and to the point. You can even use long-tail keywords.
  3. Use and Optimize Images :- I manage to get around 20% traffic of the total traffic to this blog via Google Images. Use images as they add not only color to your WordPress blog, but it can also help you gain some targeted organic traffic. Use keywords of your blog text in the description and “alt text” of your images and they will rank higher in the image directories of search engines.

        It’s not right that all the themes are SEO friendly.

        You know when I started my blog I used a theme named Blue blog and it’s SEO was good but indexing of post was not in the write way.

        I asked many bloggers but the fault was in the theme only.
        So I had to change my theme.

        Try to use your before to any test website so that you can know about it clearly.

  1. Hi Vineet,

    For better SEO bloggers should use optimized images and any caching plugins to reduce the loading time.

    Slug shouldn’t be long as you have mentioned above. It;’s always recommended to use long tail keywords because they are good from SEO point of view.

    Most of premium themes are good in SEO. Many has in-built SEO.
    They are responsive and boost up the SEO.

    Great post indeed.:)

    1. Hey Ravi

      Not only this things help to have Good SEO
      but the main thing on Which SEO depends in the no. of quality backlinks you are getting to your blog posts.

      If you have high quality backlinks surely you will rank higher

      1. Hi Suprabhat,

        Only backlinks can’t help you in SEO of your blog.

        You have to work hard and make connections. I have seen many websites which have many backlinks but still stuck up because they don’t have their authority among their readers.

        A website with better backlinks can rank you high but if you fail to build your brand then it’s over.

        Try to maintain your brand and have good results.
