4 WordPress Plug-ins for Basic SEO Productivity

In this day and age SEO is no longer just about getting on the 1st page of Google. Unless it is a navigational search query you want to make sure that your campaign is performing at optimum level as you will be competing with nine other search results. This is why it is so important to implement basic SEO practices and efficiently manage them to rank well and attract relevant clicks. Here are some SEO tools that I thoroughly recommend to improve the productivity on your WordPress site.

Contact Form 7

Contact Form 7 is a robust form generation plug-in available in the WordPress Plug-in Repository. It enables webmasters, SEOs & marketers to implement, customise and maintain multiple contact forms using a single interface to easily customize the forms with simple HTML mark-up.

WordPress SEO by Yoast

Originally designed as a blogging platform, WordPress already comes with a lot of inherent SEO capabilities but nowadays ‘something straight out the box’ will simply not cut it in the SEO world since every page on a website is ranked on its own merit. WordPress SEO by Yoast is a great plug-in when targeting a specific search query or creating a landing page. I would highly recommend taking a look at this plug-in as it boasts many features that go beyond just populating title tags, meta tags and meta descriptions.

Some of the plug-ins capabilities include:

• Page Analysis (Linkdex Page Analysis)
• Technical SEO including editing .htaccess and robots.txt files
• Meta & Link Elements
• XML Sitemap Capability
• RSS Optimization
• Breadcrumbs
• Social Integration
• Multi-Site Compatibility
• Supports Multiple Languages

All in One SEO Pack

This is a similar plug-in to SEO by Yoast and is another one I highly recommend for productivity especially when targeting more than one search query or when blogging. Although it’s not as robust as Yoast when it comes to working on multiple queries it is great for WordPress e-Commerce sites, intuitive and easy to use. The plug-in even provides a ‘mock-up’ of Google Search Results to assist with identifying areas that may need improvements in order to increase your search engine ranking position.

Duplicate Post

Duplicate Post enables users to clone page or posts and is great when you are using it in conjunction with a plug-in that allows you to customise your page layout. Instead of having to reproduce the same layout each time you create a page, you can simply click on the “clone” button and it will automatically duplicate the selected page. This becomes a very useful tool when working on conversion rate optimisation and spit testing.
