Quick Tips: Optimize Titles and Permalinks

August 1, 2013

Ping-O-Matic is all about getting your new posts out into the world, ensuring your readers see your latest stuff, and driving more traffic to your site.

What else can you do to make sure users find your content? Here are two quick tips and resources:

Optimize your page titles

Take the steps to optimize your site for SEO, starting with page titles. Our friends at Code Poet recommend Joost de Valk’s WordPress SEO resource, particularly a section on optimizing your titles for SEO.

Optimize your site’s permalinks

Our site’s permalinks should be clear and concise, yet reveal what our content is about. How long (or short) should they be? Our permalinks are like street addresses for our site’s pages — it’s important to get these right so people — and bots! — don’t get lost and can navigate our site structure. Our Code Poet pals also suggest this digwp.com┬áresource on optimizing WordPress permalinks.

    I always try to optimise both my titles and my page URL. It is very easy to forget however, but if you use WordPress there are plugins available that take out the superflous words in a page URL automatically. Words like ‘the’ and ‘in’ for example. SEO Slugs is one I use.

    Everyone talks about Yoast as the best way to optimize titles and descriptions, but I also find that Studiopress themes also have great built-in SEO to do this.

    Thanks for some great resources you mentioned in the article, especially about the plugin and tut by DigWP. I’ve been using WordPress SEO for quite some time and very happy with all the features.
