How to rank your website on the first page of Google?

I am sure you would have asked this question to yourself and to the person who helped you setup your blog, even before you started your food blog.

Ditto here! I did not even have a blog on the internet and my question was the same – how will I ensure that my blog is there on the first page of Google? Because I knew for a fact that only if my blog was up there on the first page of Google, I will get some traffic and only if I get some traffic, I will be able to make money.

And the response I got was – “by doing SEO”.

“Now that’s technical stuff and I am not technical. So what do I do?”, I asked.

SEO might sound a lot technical. But in fact it is not. There are some things that are technical but most of it is taken care off by WordPress. So you just need to focus a little on the on-page optimization and some bit of link building. And that’s it!

There are a lot of plugins that will help you with SEO. One of the earliest plugin was “All in One SEO”. But it had a lot of limitations. And with better plugins being written, very soon gave way to some of the other more advanced and feature rich plugin.

One such plugin is “Yoast SEO”.

If you are running “All in one SEO” or, Platinum SEO, then I would recommend that you switch over to Yoast SEO. There are some other premium plugins as well, like SEOPressor which can offer you even more options and features that Yoast.

But for the basic part, Yoast should be good enough.

While the fact is that SEO is not very technical, there still remains some amount of technical things that you will have to deal with to get the most out of SEO.

It is hence that a lot of people feel it tough to configure these SEO plugins. Most of the configuration options sounds like Greek to most not so techie bloggers. And there ends the enthusiasm with which you would have installed the plugin.

If you understand some of the basic concepts, you should be able to address this issue easily. But learning the basic concepts will again take time and it is not easy.

So in this video, I will show you how to configure Yoast SEO wordpress plugin so that your blog is indexed and ranked by Google. If you follow the video and configure the plugin the right way, then there is no reason why your posts shouldn’t be ranked on the first page of Google.

Of course, there will be some work required in addition to installing and configuring the plugin, like researching keywords, building some backlinks etc.
