So, to optimize your WordPress site for searching
and traffic you can do few things. No.1 starts using a SEO plugin. WordPress
SEO by Yoast is one of the top plugin that I would recommend. No 2. Submit your sitemap
to google webmaster tool. Third, use custom permalink like website post name, the simplest
permalink that is what I recommend. No 4. Write high quality content, write best content.
Read about on page SEO which is very important, it would hardly take one hour to learn about
keyword research and on page SEO and that is going to help you a lot. Apart from that,
make sure that your blog design is good which is not directly related to SEO but it gives
a good user experience. Apart from that, take care of the website loading time, you can
use cache plugin like W3total cache or W3super cache or anyone and that will help you.
Hope that helps, bye!
