Hey guys, I am Jackson Loh.

I created this post for those who are new to Wordpress Blog and want to achieve better SEO.

Actually SEO is not as complicated as you think. But there are some simple rules and theory you MUST stick with.

Ready? Ok. Let's start!


Keyword
As you know Google spider is a machine/script. It will identify your content to the relevant search from the keyword. Your blog post/content must has relevant keyword or information for targeted visitor. DO NOT think the more keyword you put, the more easy visitor will find you through Google. Search engine will identify the density of the keyword in your content. If you flood it with relevant keyword continuously, absolutely they will un-friend you.


Unique

DO NOT copy peoples' article or blog post and directly paste into your blog. This is consider duplicate content in your blog. Google is a very intelligent search engine script which called Google spider. It's function is to crawl any website which has unique content. If you don't create you own unique content... Kiss goodbye to SEO.


Momentum
Ok. Now you have created unique content then continue create more and more. Preferable, a unique blog post by daily or more than that. As I said, Google spider likes unique content. The more you have, the more it likes. If you are lazy to update your blog like me, at least write a post every two days. All you do now is to generate the momentum and make Google search your blog frequently.

Basically the concept is simple. Imagine you are now sitting inside a car in static position (no content). The only way you want your car move is start the engine and step on the gas pedal (continuous new content). Once your car moving fast, you can simply put the gear in neutral position and let it slide with its momentum (every 2 days a content). If the car slow down, you simply step on the gas pedal and speed up the car again. Get it??

    Thanks, Jackson.

    People should also look into using the YOAST SEO plugin for easier SEO and, if they are running keyword sniping blogs, write around KW themes instead of keyword repitition.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

    Unique content is for traffic, Google could care less who created the content first. No, I'm not suggesting to scrape sites.

    Wordpress sites can have title, description, keywords as like normal webpages they tend to provide helpful information for spiders, it should contain good content, image description, and url with useful keywords.

    Dont know how smart the google spider is or their logic. Someone scraped my site, I mean exactly, so exact that they even forgot or just didnt care that my domain name was listed on their page. Yet they are still ranking right after me on google and my site was up for a year before this happened. Its been 3 months now and their ranking is improving, I still rank higher but they are now on the first page right under my site rankings.
