How to Optimize WordPress

Writing blogs has become an excellent means of expressing views, opinions, policies and statements. Whether it is for personal use or professional purposes, a blog is an interactive medium that allows for extensive communication between the author and the audience. WordPress is one of the most popular tools for writing and maintaining a blog and its easy-to-use style has led to a rise in the number of people using the program. In this article we give you advice on how to optimize WordPress so as to make the maximum amount of profit from your blog. The instructions herein are aimed to guide you on essential matters such as preventing spam, raising the standard of quality of your blog or website both in terms of aesthetics and functionality as well as ways in which you can gain an edge over the competition when it comes to search engine optimization.

Preventing any spam infiltration should be one of your priorities. Using WordPress allows you to make use of a number of fascinating plug-ins and exciting applications. However, owing to the masses of options available, the risk of entry of spam into your system too is increased manifold. Using WordPress often involves a function wherein users to your blog have to respond to a series of questions in order to be able to gain approval to leave any response or information on your webpage. Even though this service comes in use to be able to differentiate between varieties of audiences, many visitors to a website get discouraged by the prospect of having to fill out forms. It is a better idea to use the services of the plug-in Askimed which comes with WordPress and allows you rate posts as spam and allows other viewers to the website to check your rating

Next most important step is to title your posts in an attractive and eye-catching way. Search engines pick up posts that have the most appropriate posts regarding a specific category. Keyword density is important when choosing a title for the post as it will increase your chances of receiving a good ranking in a frequently used search engine, thus directing an increased amount of traffic to your publications.

It is better not to add dates to the title as visitors tend to stay away from posts they feel have lost their relevance in the present context. If your content has an enduring appeal that can prove to be useful even after months of publication, it is best not to add timelines to the heading as viewers browsing through search engine listings will get discouraged and will believe your post to be ‘dated’ and will pass by it without checking it.

Keywords form the backbone of the entire structure of the article and hence it is imperative that you pepper them throughout the article and not just in the title. As the first paragraph is undoubtedly the most important as it can either make or break the impression on the audience and also is the most significant in determining your search engine listing, it is important to use the keywords in the first sentence and once or twice through the rest of the first paragraph.
