How WordPress Helps with SEO

You already know how popular WordPress is, and how useful it is as a CMS. Business owners who use WordPress find that it is a priceless and an immensely easy to use platform.

One of the things that makes WordPress so coveted is its SEO friendliness. Here are some of the ways WordPress helps with SEO.

SEO Ready

WordPress websites are SEO ready right out of the box.

Sure, simply switching to WordPress won’t make your website rank on top of the search engines. But, WordPress takes care of a lot of the SEO basics. As your web design Manchester agency, we do everything that’s necessary to make your WordPress website SEO friendly.

Search engines can easily crawl through your WordPress website and discover your content. And that’s something.

Easy Content Management

WordPress makes content creation and management a breeze. You can add multiple users to create content simultaneously, while your website stays completely functional. Focus on publishing high quality, original content on a regular basis, and you have a winner at your hand.

You can also optimise the meta information for each page and blog post using plugins like Yoast SEO. Put all these things together, and you have a richly optimised website waiting to be discovered by your target audience.

Easy to Format

Formatting your content is a walk in the park with WordPress. Search engines put a lot of emphasis on headings and subheadings. And you can help them by using heading tags from H1 through to H6.

H1 is the heading or the title of your page, and tells the search engines that this is the most important part of your page. Use it only once in a page lest you end up being penalised.

Enhance readability by making complying with the heading hierarchy. Use H1, H2, H3 and so on to create a clean appearance and enhanced readability.

WordPress Helps You Focus

WordPress provides fields for you to easily write out your title (H1) and met information. The meta data is a snippet preview of your site when it appear in search results. By optimising these fields, you are making your website far more relevant to your target search.
