In trying to write a blog on Ultimate Demon, one of the problems I’ve come across in the recent weeks is one that I’ve created for myself. When talking about Edwinsoft’s Ultimate Demon’s linking abilities and features, there are so many issues and topics we could discuss that I made the decision to start discussing several at once. This has lead to many questions and emails (and video replies) asking questions and raising issues at a real tangent to the direction I had planned to take my Ultimate Demon SEO and linking discussions and tutorials.
So here I am being led by my readership when I move onto WordPress plug-ins that will help you to make the most of both on-site and off-site SEO optimisation particularly when using a link building program such as Ultimate Demon.
First of all, apologies for those of you that are not using the WordPress content management system for your website. I know there are many of you out there. It is also true to say that because of the ability to add SEO plug-ins and optimise WordPress sites semi-automatically using readily available code, that many of you do use WordPress on your sites.
My article a few days ago stressed the importance of on-site optimisation before attempting any link building it with Ultimate Demon or any other SEO or Internet marketing software. The most important aspect in this is your content, it should be.
- Unique – REAL unique – not “copyscape passed” unique
- On topic
- Plentiful – The more on topic, unique content the better
- Regularly Updated
- Contain other media – Videos, images (correctly tagged of course)
- Have internal links – To existing posts on your site where appropriate)
- Have external links – Top other sites that are authorities on particular aspects of your discussion
Save your “copyscape passed” unique content for off site link-building if you use it at all. Writing your own article with a speech to text program and microphone is a ten minute job with practice. (and spinning your own unique work for syndication is pretty much totally “White Hat”
There there are many tools available on the Internet that will give you an idea of whether your written work is suitable and strong enough for Google and the other search engines to consider it worthwhile ranking highly in search.
Ultimate Demon of course is all about your off-site SEO, linking to and from other sites and getting your own content found on the Internet. So we’ll start here with a list of plug-ins for WordPress that will aid Edwinsoft’s excellent Ultimate Demon in helping you with your link building strategy.
The sort of tools you may need to look at include automated linking tools, relationship building tools and plug-ins that allow you to monitor your position at performance against various metrics such as serps and your Alexa rank.
If you are a commercial website with a client base you might also be looking for plug-ins that provide automated information to your clients. Here we’ll have a look at a few of the best WordPress plug-ins to use in conjunction with Ultimate Demon for off-site search engine optimisation.
The only off site link building or “link enhancing” plug-in I would recommend is one called back “link energizer”.
While it doesn’t create links directly to your posts,it does almost guaranteed that every piece of content you write will get indexed. You’d be surprised how many times you spend ages writing and optimising a post only for Google ignore it and fail to index it correctly. Often the search engines might not find your links at all without a subtle “push”.
It goes without saying that the ping module in Ultimate Demon can do some this almost as well. But if you’re adding a lot of content to many sites in one go outside of Ultimate Demon then this one plug-in which runs on the servers that your WordPress sites are installed on will save you a lot of time and effort.
This isn’t an affiliate link I have nothing to do with back link energiser from a business sense, I have just found it useful and it’s relatively inexpensive.
On-site SEO is where WordPress plug-ins that run in conjunction with a link created using Ultimate Demon really come into their own.
Until recently I recommended several different plug-ins to perform most of the optimisation needed on-site, but they have now nearly all been replaced with a free plug-in called “Wordpress SEO by Yoast”
This WP plug-in replaces several others are used to use to create XML site maps and ensure that my post titles and meta descriptions and correct. It has the added features of allowing you to configure your robots meta file and clean up your permanent structure as well as enhancing your RSS feed and ensuring that your header section is and they text that will appear in the description box under your web title in search engines reads as you would like it to rather than the random text that is often selected by Google. Having Ultimate Demon RSS submitter send out your feed once polished by this WP plugin will give it a real boost.
There are other alternatives of course, and if this is a little too complex than you can have plug-ins that do each feature individually.
The final sort of plug-in I would recommend for your WordPress installation is ones that help you optimise any external social media sites that you have running in conjunction and supporting your blog.
Individual plug-ins that display your twitter feed or send your posts or comments directly to a Facebook page can be extremely useful additions. Have a look at these below.
I’ll finish this post on plugins to help Ultimate Demon optimize your link building by mentioning that “Google +1” is becoming a more important factor in search engine ranking. To my mind this seems a dubious and even cynical innovation.
They have always set themselves up as “judge jury and executioner” as far as your online success in business goes, but now with “Google +1” they seem also keen to manufacture their own evidence.
An unnatural and unwieldy hegemony that I hope is broken soon by some small independent companies.
But right now, it might be worth getting some naturally cultivated Google +1 links to your website as well, and installing a wordpress plug-in which clearly displays both the number that you have and makes it easy for visitors to “Google+1” you and your site.
Ultimate Demon – Edwinsoft,s premier link building tool, will do wonders for your offsite SEO. Having some control and understanding onsite optimization and using these WordPress plugins will help the other side of your internet marketing efforts enormously.
