After day by day, technologies as well as SEO techniques are being developed to give the best to all over the world. Along with that Blogging becomes the most productive and easiest method to share your thought after ignoring Social Media. There are more than a few platforms i.e. Google Blogger, WordPress.Com, Self-Hosted WordPress, Tumblr etc. those may rally round to start your blog. Let’s talk about WordPress (self-hosted). Everyone says that it is the most SEO friendly platform. But I don’t think so. You should do something in terms of Search Engine Optimization.
You can use WordPress SEO by Yoast, All in One SEO and others which cost nothing. Or you can give Easy WP SEO a try. This costs a few dollars and this is one of the best SEO plugins that I have ever seen. After using it for a long while, I realize that what actually SEO is. But it is quite intricate to set up correctly. This is the major section that a plugin has.
How to setup Easy WP SEO?
Though it offers an in-built settings which is known as Automatic Decoration but I don’t consider this since I would like to set it up at my end.
- To get started with this, come on to the Miscellaneous Settings. Just make a tick on the following points;
On-Page SEO Factors:
Title Contains Keyword
Title Contains at least 3 words
Title Contains up to 66 characters
Permalink Contains your keyword
Description Meta tag contains keyword

Tick all three
Turn on Stop Words
- After doing everything on previous page, now time to set up LSI (latent Semantic Indexing) feature which is new in the latest version.
To activate this feature, you have to get a Bing API. For that, go to Windows Azure Marketplace and sign up for a free API. Fill up the entire form and go to My Account.
Therefore navigate to Account Keys and here you can find your API. Just copy it and paste in Easy WP SEO section. Make sure your changes.
Though the SEO part has been finished but still there are some options to protect your settings by password or set up Copyscape etc. Anyway I hope this above would help you to boost your SEO within a few couple of days.
