Third Simple SEO Tips For Beginners: Keyword
I explained a lot of keywords at my post BEST KEYWORD TOOL, you can read it on further detail.
Fourth Simple SEO Tips For Beginners: Links
Linking strategy is also important to consider. Your site will have two link types: internal and external.
Internal is, i.e. like this post, relate to some other places within your website. External is when you link to external websites.
When using internal links, you should choose the links by yourself using the tool in your wordpress site, don’t just use plugins because they don’t know your site as good as you do, follow the example below:
For external linking, choose the ones you like and are related to your content, don’t be afraid to show the Search Engines you are providing content and you are confident your readers come back later even if you send them to other sites.
For example and to be consistent with my writing, i recommend you check Reliable Soft, I think is a serious company and oriented for more advanced users.
