How Long should your post be? Where do you get your words? Is spelling and grammar important? All good questions you will get the answer to in this post!
I started the title of this post with the initialism SEO for a reason. Most people want their posts to be picked up by Search Engines like Google and Bing. So let me start with the tried and true three most import items you need in your post…
Everyone is looking for great SEO tips. Let me start this Posting Tips series by saying that good posting, is good SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
With this post I am creating a new category: WordPress => Posting Tips
Much of the do or die work on your website will be done in your posting. This is the day in day out stuff that will make your website a success or a failure. Without good, regular, posting, your website becomes stagnant and dies. Or worse, your website could be penalized by search engines for a number of common infractions that are common to spammers, black hat (illegal) SEO.and Newbies.
Many mistakes made by Newbies include things like the all powerful page titles, meta tags (description etc.), the “more” tag, and the <h1> tag. Even things like opening paragraphs, category names, alt tags on images, and the wrongful use of social media, all can have a huge (beneficial or disastrous) effect on your SERP (Search Engine Results Page) position.
Conversion – Not Impression
Conversion should be your goal! Now most SEO “experts” consider “conversion” to be “click thoughts” or your “click through rate.” I disagree, I look at conversion as being people who buy what you are advertising. When I say “buy” it could mean people adopt your point of view, as in a political website or a religious website. It could be people accept your teaching on health or wellbeing, or how to be a successful Money Making Entrepreneur using AdSense, or how to get more clients to your hotel of restaurant, or eye clinic!
I will update this list with new posting Tips as I think of them and write articles about them. So book mark this page. You can also find links in the topic Posting Tips. The following can be made into a checklist of things to do before you publish your post. If you use a good WordPress Theme, some of these tasks will be done automatically or semi-automatically for you, reducing your workload.
Body Title Multi Post Pages
Body Title Single Pages
Image Alt Tag
Image Title Tag
Page Title (Meta Title)
Removing Posts and Pages
When I was a boy, my mother washed out my mouth with soap, for using a “bad word!” Things were different then. However, the Internet also has its share of bad words. These are words that will hurt (or at least not help) you Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Since you are reading this post, I am going to assume that you care about your SERP (Search Engine Results Page) position. So I am going to teach you how to avoid “bad words” with far less discomfort than my soapy mouth solution my mother used on me (but it did work and I am thankful for that!).
It was brought to my attention (thanks Yoda!) that I had not styled the footer section of the Money Making Entrepreneur website. As we are using the TuKod Theme (modified Atahualpa Theme) this is actually a simple task. We also thought it would be fun to add a few deserving websites to the mundane links that the bottom. And one important one, a link to our sitemap!

The Domain Name Dilemma

So you are ready to start your website, set up or blog, and become a Money Making Entrepreneur. You may have already read hundreds of pages, dozens on SEO alone! Now you come face to face with the Domain Name Dilemma. Do you use a free domain, like www.something.blogger.com or www.something.multiply.com. Or do you try to buy “www.TheVeryBestAndPerfectDomain.com” priced to sell at the “low cost” of only $5,999.99! Some domains have sold for millions of USA dollars!
However, the target for the Money Making Entrepreneur, basically, is to help you earn from a few hundred, to a few thousand dollars a month in income. That is our focus. Below are guidelines that may help you sort this out, so you will not make costly mistakes. Continue reading
