Content creation is one of the goals in SEO. If you want to easily create and update your website with content (blogging), you should consider using a content management system (CMS). These platforms are user-friendly (i.e., you don’t need to understand code) and allow you to regularly update your content. WordPress leads the pack with more than 60% of the CMS market share, and has a lot to offer, especially when it comes to Search Engine Optimization.

Optimizing A Content Management System

For SEO purposes, a web design needs HTML codes. The following are elements that should be considered when optimizing a website:

Page

When search engines crawl a website, they get an idea of what the content is all about by reading the HTML code and tags. Plugins can help make a content management system more search engine friendly and will enhance the ease of your SEO implementation.

Title Tags

Title tags are important for SEO. This is a page code that gives readers an idea of what the content is about. It is usually the title of the page content.  Proper formatting and keywording will help your page stand out in search.

Meta Description

A good meta description provides a snippet of the content that appears in a search engine result when a user performs a search. The search engine will also highlight the text if it contains the keyword.

URLs

Your web design must factor in keywords when creating your URL. This can also help in ranking. The URL should give a picture of what your content is about, making it user-friendly for search.

Content

The central part of your website should be the text. SEO content creation is a topic on its own, but a content strategist can advise you on best SEO practices and how to start SEO for a website.

Images

Graphics are considered crucial for SEO building. While you want to use the best possible images for your content, you must also consider image titles as a part of your SEO strategy.
