5 WordPress Plugins to Build Traffic to your Website

The Internet has so many websites and pages, how can you build a website and make sure it gets noticed? The trick is using SEO (Search Engine Optimization) effectively so that your site ranks well with the Search Engines and you get connected to the people looking for your services.

People won’t know your site is there unless you tell them, and the best way to build traffic to your website is by making it easy for them to find you in a web search. WordPress has many plugins that use SEO techniques and optimizes your content by helping you choose the right tags to use, how to create killer titles, and to use terms the search engines will latch onto.

All of these plugins are available in our Plugins Directory.

All in One SEO Pack

The All in One SEO Pack is probably the most highly recommended plugin for SEO on WordPress. In can be an effective tool for both beginners and veterans. This plugin will help you come up with the perfect titles and keywords, and site descriptions to get your site noticed and drive web traffic to your website. The more you work with the plugin, the more you can make it work for you.

SEO Watcher

This plugin checks the pulse of your site daily by checking your Google rankings on WordPress. You can enter up to three URLs and keywords, and the plugin will tell you if the sites are listed in Google’s top 100.

SEO Title Tag

The SEO Title Tag optimizes your title tags throughout your site, including all of your content, not just titles. This plugin allows you to do mass editing of title tags and pages in one shot. You can replace a page’s title tag with one that’s customized to improve search engine visibility.

Google XML Sitemaps

By generating a XML sitemap for your pages, the search engines can index your site more effectively, and that will generate more traffic for your site. Every time you create new content or a new post, the XML sitemap will alert the major search engines, like Google, Yahoo, Bing, and Ask, and that helps build traffic to your website.

SEO Smart Links

This plugin not only helps you create personalized keyword lists, but it also links your keywords and phrases with other posts and pages within your site, automatically interlinking your posts, and allowing you to link affiliate sites to your own.

The five listed are must haves, and are all easy to install and operate, and will make a noticeable difference in your visitor stats.
