SEOPressor helped me get over one of the biggest challenges I faced when I started blogging.
I know it sounds strange to refer to an inanimate object that way. But alas, I must admit, a digital product has become one of my dearest online friends.
Sure, other plugins tried to step-in and take my attention away from SEOPressor.
They tried to lure me away with fancy-schmancy features and high-fluting options that I couldn’t begin to wrap my brain around. There’s even one of the free WordPress Plugins for SEO that is so complicated the developer charges big bucks for a webinar to explains how to use it properly. (I don’t know about you, but something about that business model seems a little backwards….)
But I hung in there. I waited for the updated SEOPressor Version 5. And boy, oh boy am I glad I did!
(By the way, if you use my affiliate link above to buy the SEOPressor WordPress plugin I thank you in advance. It doesn’t effect the price you pay and here’s more about the results I’m getting).
SEOPressor Gets Results
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so let me ask you this: How many of you have received a message like this when you logged into Google Webmaster Tools:
No, I’m not talking about one of those warning messages from Webmaster Tools that warns you about having an unnatural link profile or excessive use of anchor text.
I’m talking about the happy kind of message that makes you skip around the room for 15 minutes.
Google is telling me that they love the content on this blog so much that they are rewarding me with more traffic! Significantly more traffic! Talk about connecting with influencers – SEO Pressor connected my blog to the biggest traffic influencer around. Meet my new best friend.
Updates to Version 5 of the Baddest Little WordPress SEO Plugin on the Planet
So how did such an awesome plugin get even better? If you know me well, you know that I can show you better than I can tell you. Feast your eyes on my video review and tutorial for SEOPressor Version 5.
One thing I need to you know about our new friend Google is that they like to keep the relationship between us fresh and exciting. They never want things to be stale and boring so they like to mix it up make sure we stay on our toes. I know this can be annoying at times, which is why we need help. Thank goodness that WordPress Plugins for SEO can point us in the right direction so we’re on top of the situation.
The latest game changing features that were introduced by Google are Google Authorship and Author Rank. In order to tweak our blogs and get a preview of how our Google Authorship appears in search results, they also introduced something called Rich Snippets and the Rich Snippet Testing Tool. Take a look at one of my listings from Google search.
One of the biggest updates to this plugin is the Rich Snippets settings panel. This provides an area for us to tweak the content that will appear in the snippet in the search engine results page (SERP) listing. We can add additional information about reviews, products, events, people and even recipes that make our search listing more attractive to users and increases our click through rates.
LSI Keywords? What’s that…
Another important option that’s now integrated with SEOPressor is known as LSI or Latent Semantic Indexing:
“These are essentially keywords related to the keywords that you are searching for, and Google does this by using a system known as LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). In a nutshell, it is based on user search patterns and behavior, how one keyword search is usually linked to another keyword search.
Google has confirmed that by using more LSI keywords, your page typically ranks better…”
In the video I show you exactly how to use the LSI panel on the WordPress Blog post editor – so don’t worry if you find the terminology confusing. It’s really simple once you follow my step-by-step instructions.
One step you need to take in order to make the LSI keywords appear is to sign up for a Bing API key. This is another simple process that you need to do only once. Hopefully you have an account with Bing already and you’re using their Webmaster Tools as well (let me know if you need help setting up Bing Webmaster Tools and if necessary I’ll record a tutorial for that also).
SEOPressor Is One of the Must Have Plugins for WordPress Blogs with Guest Authors
Managing a blog with multiple authors can sometimes be an overwhelming task. Back in 2011 I realized that I needed a plugin that would help conquer the overwhelm and that’s when I found SEO Pressor. Andy Bailey introduced me to it when I did a guest post on the CommentLuv blog and I was hooked ever since.
It still does all the things I loved about it when I did my first review back in August of 2011 when I listed these features:
- Highlight keywords in your post
- Add keywords in your post title
- Check for keywords in H1, H2 and H3 tags
- Check for Alt Image tag and add one if it’s missing
- Verify that you have internal links (for on-page SEO)
- Calculate Keyword Density
- Remind you to add rel=nofollow on external links (although this blog is DoFollow)
Now it does so much more and based on the feedback that I get from my guest authors it helps them become better writers too. In the end we all want to deliver better content to our readers and stay up on the top of search results so we can keep getting new ones right? I definitely include this one on my list of Top 10 WordPress Plugins for making that happen.
