6 Easy Steps to Rank New WordPress Content Faster

Want to rank new WordPress content quickly?

Sometimes it takes some time for search engines to index new content, so your site may not appear in current searches or receive a lot of traffic.

However, it would be best if you never ignored the ranking of your new content.

Many site owners don’t know this, but if you, as a WordPress website owner, don’t place much importance on the ranking of your content, you won’t be able to drive traffic to your website. It would be best to consider the ranking of your content from day one.

When you do this, your site can get a lot of research and fantastic traffic. Same as pre-orders integrated through the WooCommerce pre-order plugin create much of the hype for launching the product. In addition, the ranking of your content will continue to improve as your WordPress site gains more authority in search engines.

However, various websites initially have difficulty getting organic traffic. WordPress SEO practices should be implemented or deployed to address this.
Following are the six easy ways to rank your new content for WordPress faster.

1. Install an SEO plugin

Any WordPress site needs an SEO plugin to change the way its pages are displayed on search engines. And when it comes to SEO plugins, AIOSEO and Yoast SEO are probably some of the most popular choices.

To do this, you need to install and enable the All in One or Yoast SEO plugin for WordPress.

All in One SEO makes it easy for WordPress to do SEO without any special skills. Yoast SEO has many built-in features that allow you to manage your website’s SEO directly.

The plugin displays an installation command that walks you to the beginning upon activation. Configuring the SEO plugin automatically does most of the SEO work. For example, if an SEO tag or description is missing, a plugin may be created automatically for you.

But with these plugins premium versions, you can do more to increase the ranking of your new content search.

2. Add Google Search Console

It is a free tool that helps website owners track the performance of their website in search results.

This will allow you to track your results and receive notifications when Google cannot crawl or index any pages on your site. You can also use the website to notify Google of any updates automatically.

3. Configure XML site map

The WordPress Sitemap is a list of all the public URLs on the WordPress website. Sitemaps help visitors and search engines navigate quickly and easily across all URLs on a single site. They can also show the distance between different pages and the value of each page.

WordPress maps also tell search engines about pages on your site that they haven’t indexed before. It shows the structure and organisation of web pages by providing a complete list of standard URLs.

This will help meet your website’s needs by notifying your website’s search engines that there are no duplicates. Sitemaps also make your site more user-friendly, which improves its position on search engine results pages (SERPs).

4. Perform Content Optimisation

It is the process of ensuring that content is well written to reach a wide range of audiences. Web content research is essential for writing all content, but it’s also crucial that landing pages include information about other aspects of the content.

This should include indexing search terms, adding metrics and tags, and related links. You should also add headlines to increase your CTR and visibility to increase your customer experience.

As with images, be sure to optimise the description and title tags when you post a video to your site, as search engines use these tags to understand the content and context of the video.

Once your video is good, many websites you can use to host your videos, such as YouTube and Vimeo, offer inline code that you can put into HTML your website, allowing visitors to watch your videos directly on your page, but not. You should visit the video site. Edit the video file name as you would for the images, that is, by adding keywords.

5. Internal linking

Communication is necessary before your business can be organised. Google is more likely to find your posts and pages if you link to something online. Internal links lead to your content and give Google an idea of the structure of your site.

They can queue your site, allowing you to rank the most important pages and promote more relevant links than other less important pages. Therefore, using internal links can improve your SEO.

An internal linking means strategically distributing your site’s links on your content. Links worked for both your users and search engines to find the content of your website.

Your users use the links to navigate your website and search for content that interests them. Links are essential for your visitors as well as search engines. 

6. Integrating Social Signals

Social signals are related to the collective sharing, liking and general visibility of a website on social media, as perceived by search engines. This representation contributes to the ranking of organic search on a page and is viewed as another citation form similar to backlinks.

Social media is now more than just messaging and finding ways: it affects your content for SEO. This is why it is more important than ever for the content marketer to create a creative marketing strategy that promotes the best content to deliver value to your visitors. 

Wrapping up

Think of a way to ensure your new item is listed and sorted correctly. The easiest way to track this is to use Google Analytics. Google Analytics is used to track website performance and visitors.

It can help organisations identify key sources of human traffic, measure the success of their marketing and advertising activities, track goals (sales models, add products to the drive), explore patterns and trends in human interactions, and find your visitors information such as demographics.

Our Top 10 Used Plugins For WordPress – 2021 Edition

Every WordPress developer has a bunch of plugins they tend to install on pretty much every WordPress site they develop, and we are also that kind of people. These plugins give great solutions for caching, security and adding other improvements that build on WordPress core.

That’s the beauty of WordPress – there are loads of plugins to choose from and they are so quick and easy to implement. Some plugins are just a case of downloading and activating, others provide a shortcode which you can copy and paste within your pages and others is a simple as dragging and dropping a widget where ever you wish to display it.

With so many free and premium plugins available, how do you distinguish from the good and bad plugins out there?

Do note, overloading your web site with too many plugins can cause plugin conflict and reduce the speed of your web site, so if you can avoid a plugin and just code it in, that’s even better!

Below you will find our selection of essential plugins, all chosen based on their usefulness, quality and popularity.


1.) WooCommerce

WooCommerce is a great plugin and is really quick and easy to install. It turns your standard WordPress website into an eCommerce store and creates all the necessary pages for you (My Account, Checkout, Cart etc). It allows integration with secure payment methods such as Bank Transfer, PayPal, SagePay and many more. With a huge range of features that can be quickly changed in the Control Panel, this is definitely one of my favourites because of the speed you can set up a fantastic eCommerce website.


2.) Advanced Custom Fields

Advanced Custom Fields is an amazing plugin and without a shadow of a doubt, it’s installed on every project I build. I would definitely recommend getting a licence for the Pro version which you can find out more information about here. You can use the Advanced Custom Fields plugin to take full control of your WordPress edit screens & custom field data. It makes it super easy for clients to change text / images any many other things within your WordPress site without any risk of breaking the site.


3.) Contact Form 7

Contact Form 7 is another plugin I use on pretty much every WordPress site I develop. You can manage multiple contact forms, customise the form and the mail contents and again, it’s really easy to use. The form supports Ajax-powered submitting, CAPTCHA, Akismet spam filtering and many more. All the form elements are generated for you so you don’t even have to know any PHP code. If your not already using this plugin for your forms, I suggest giving it a try now!


4.) Yoast SEO

SEO Yoast is a fantastic platform for SEO. I have used this plugin on 100% of the WordPress sites I have developed and it is the only plugin I use in terms of SEO. If set up correctly, it will improve your site’s SEO on all needed aspects. WordPress SEO forces you to choose a focus keyword when you’re writing your articles, and then makes sure you use that focus keyword everywhere, it also ranks the SEO of all your pages and posts from ‘Bad’, ‘OK’ to ‘Good’ so you know if your content is going to have any chance of ranking on search engines. The best feature about this plugin is that it even tells you how you can improve the performance of each and every page on your site. It may say things such as, you need to include

tags or include an outbound link on your page/post. You will learn a lot about SEO if you run this plugin on your websites. We actually use the SEO Yoast Premium version which allows up to 5 keywords on each page/post/CPT including many other great features which you can read about or purchase here.


5.) Hummingbird Page Speed Optimization

The next 3 set of plugins I’m going to be talking about are plugins offered by WPMU DEV which you can read about more here. There are free versions of these plugins but they also have premium versions which offer a lot more features which I would highly recommend. Hummingbird PRO is an awesome caching plugin. It zips through your site and finds new ways to boost page speed with fine-tuned controls over file compression, minification and full-page, browser and Gravatar caching. Load your pages quicker and score higher on Google PageSpeed Insights with Hummingbird site optimization.


6.) Smush Image Compression and Optimization

This plugin is one of my favourites; it will resize, optimise and compress all of your images with the incredibly powerful and 100% free WordPress image smusher. This uses Lossly compression which will significantly reduce the file sizes of all images on your web site which will definitely increase your sites speed. Again, the premium version of this plugin is 100% recommended as it will allow you to SUPER-Smush all your images along with a few other great features which will allow you to further optimise your site. Need a high Google Speed Test score? This plugin combined with Hummingbird will make the job a piece of cake 😉


7.) Defender Security, Monitoring, and Hack Protection

Security is definitely important when it comes to WordPress, the number of sites I’ve had to restore/repair and remove Malware from is crazy. So make sure you have fully configured a great security plugin to prevent your web site from these kinds of attacks. Defender is layered security for WordPress made easy. And by easy, I mean amazingly easy! No longer do you have to go through hideously complex settings and get a virtual PhD in security. Defender adds all the hardening and security tweaks you need, in just minutes!


8.) Akismet Anti-Spam

Sick and tired of spam comments and junk email from your WordPress site? Akismet has you covered! Akismet checks your comments and contact form submissions against their global database of spam to prevent your site from publishing malicious content. You can review the comment spam it catches on your blog’s “Comments” admin screen.


9.) MailChimp for WordPress

MailChimp for WordPress allows your visitors to subscribe to your newsletter very easily. This plugin helps you grow your MailChimp lists and write better newsletters through various methods. You can create good looking opt-in forms or integrate with any existing form on your sites, like your comment, contact or checkout form.


10.) Classic Editor

Finally, our last plugin which we have made a lot of use from since WordPress 5 is Classic Editor! Classic Editor is an official plugin maintained by the WordPress team that restores the previous (“classic”) WordPress editor and the “Edit Post” screen. It makes it possible to use plugins that extend that screen, add old-style meta boxes, or otherwise depend on the previous editor. By default, this plugin hides all functionality available in the new Block Editor (“Gutenberg”). Since a lot of people are finding it difficult to get their heads around Gutenberg, this is a great quick fix plugin which will restore the editor back to the way you’ve known and loved for a long time.
