But if you’ve got a minute or two, stick with us and read this short story about SEO and WordPress:
Some time ago I’d just launched a new website and was populating it with some posts. These posts were what I’ll call ‘starter articles’, just short sketches of posts that I’d planned on going back and fleshing out over the next couple of days.
Which is exactly what I did do, according to plan.
Except that there was one ‘starter article’ that I somehow had overlooked. So the post just sat there while the rest of the website we built up and developed.
Recently I was examining the income search inquires to that website and discovered this ‘lost article’ was receiving a pretty good amount of traffic, in many cases more direct traffic than the articles we’d gone back and optimized for SEO for WordPress.
I was amazed.
I mean, this starter article that was attracting a lot of traffic violated almost every SEO for WordPress principle that there was (except one):
- The main keyword was not in the headline
- There was little or no use of H2 and H3 headers
- Text linking to other articles and pages within the website was non existent
- The main keyword did not appear strategically throughout the article
- The article length was too short
- There was no graphic with an ALT tag of the main keyword
There were a few other things with this high traffic article that broke the rules, but you probably get the idea.
How This Article Had A High SEO Ranking
What this article did have going for it, and the thing that obviously the search engines found to their liking, was that this article that was attracting so much traffic was well written with high quality original content.
See, if you write about something that you know well or that you enjoy, it really doesn’t take that long and your attitude will show in the high quality of the post.
When this high SEO ranked article was written, it had been done very quickly and topically.
