Discover the Keywords That Already Send You Traffic
Take a look at the keywords that you send you traffic, and see where you rank in search engines for them.
If you’re not ranking #1, that’s your chance to improve the ranking for that one keyword.
When you find keywords that already send you traffic, and you want to improve the rankings of those keywords, often times, you can raise your ranking a spot or two by improving your internal linking.
For example, let’s say that you discover you’re ranking for Facebook Share Button. When you write new articles, make sure you internally link the older article with the proper anchor text… where it makes sense.
Doing this will breathe life into your older articles, and alert Google that the article is still relevant on your site. You’re linking it after all!
Here’s a simple 3-step strategy that will make this simple WordPress SEO tip extremely easy.
- Find between 10 and 15 keywords that send you traffic, and have the opportunity for improvement (aka you’re not ranking #1 yet).
- Write those keywords on a piece of scratch paper, and leave it next to your keyboard.
- When you write new posts, refer to that list and see what you internal links you can add into your article before you press publish.
