Simple, White Hat SEO Cheats To Save Time & Energy

Cheating at SEO, obviously, is not a good idea. Taking a shortcut turns out to be the longest path. These cheats aren’t exactly cheats… just a way to save time and energy so you can focus on more important things than SEO.

Add a “Site Search” Bar

“Huh?!” you ask? “WTF does a site search bar have to do with search engine optimization?”

If you really are wondering that, you have much to learn. What better way to find out what your audience is looking for than to use data from internal search. If somebody has to use this site search bar, it means the information they are looking for isn’t seen immediately. Not only will the results give you a sense of keywords and search phrases to target but you will also learn how to improve the architecture of information on your website.

Add Google Authorship

This isn’t just about connecting with your Google Plus page (which you should be using!!!). It’s about adding authority to your WordPress site with the king of all search engines.

Use Google Tools

Google Webmaster Tools and Google Analytics are two of the most powerful systems that can help you analyze site data and plan for continued growth. Why pay for anything else… these are free?!

Use Small SEO Tools

For anything else not covered by Google Analytics or Webmaster Tools, there are plenty of SEO tools for free at SmallSEOTools.com. Everything from a plagiarism checker to a backlinks checker so you can run reports and analyze data with just a few clicks!

Simplify!

SEO is not dead, nor will it ever be. But if you find yourself overwhelmed by search engine optimization… it’s because you’re overthinking things. Instead, simplify and focus on offering more value to your core audience. Trust me, this is what the search engines favor.
