WordPress for Beginners: SEO Hints and Tips
Hello. I am Jan Ashby, an internet marketer and wordpress user. I want to help the Beginners to wordpress today. If you fall into this category – beginner to seo and wordpress, this post is just for you!
I want to do a brief lesson on blog posts, and adding your images. For seo purposes, you want to please the search engines. So I’ll help you visualize Alt-tag seo – which simply means optimization of your blog’s images.
Don’t worry, I’ll also add the Alt-Tag SEO video here, to help you visualize it better.
After all, some people do learn better with video. And others like to READ fast. So I’m giving you both options.
ALT-TAG SEO: For Beginners
STEPS: There are 3 basic things to do
1) When saving a chosen image to your computer, you want to
NAME the file with the keyword you’ve selected
2) Title your image with your chosen keyphrase
3) Alternate Text – Use chosen keyword for this
Chosen Image: Make Sure Your Image is Relevant
Naturally, you wouldn’t want to use an irrelevant picture – if you’re promoting an internet marketing course, you wouldn’t plop a picture of a high-powered camera in the middle of your post
