WordPress SEO Services for Small Businesses
Boost your website’s visibility through our SEO services for WordPress.
SEO stands for search engine optimization, which is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to a website through organic search engine results. WordPress is known as one of the most popular and SEO-friendly content management systems (CMS).
WordPress is used by 65.1% of all websites with known CMS. That’s 42.8% of all websites!
WordPress SEO is essentially optimizing a website built and run through the WordPress CMS. There are many different elements that make up SEO for WordPress websites that we will cover below. Our WordPress SEO services help boost your website’s online visibility in search results.
No, SEO can be implemented on any CMS, not just WordPress websites. WordPress is popular because of its ease of use, accessible plugins, and support options. However, other CMS such as HubSpot, Joomla, WooCommerce, Drupal, Wix, etc. are good options for building a small business website as well.
SEO services for WordPress are very similar to SEO services for other CMS. The only true difference is that WordPress has a full suite of plugins to make SEO easier for small business website owners.
As we said, SEO efforts are important for websites on any CMS. However, there are some SEO benefits of using WordPress as your CMS. Here are some of the top benefits.
Lower Bounce Rates
WordPress does a great job of focusing on user experience. Their prebuilt themes and plugins make sites attractive, functional, and reduce bounce rates. Users are more likely to stay on a well-designed and easy-to-navigate website than one with a poor user experience.
Easy Metadata Management
Using the Yoast SEO plugin on WordPress makes metadata management a breeze. Meta descriptions and title tags can be implemented in minutes using this plugin. Read about why meta descriptions matter for SEO and how title tags affect your website rankings on our blog.
Simple Image Optimization
Another benefit of using WordPress for SEO is how simple it is to optimize images. Optimizing images includes resizing, which is easy to do on WordPress, and adding ALT text. You can either manually add ALT text to images on WordPress or use a plugin to automatically create ALT text. There are also image compression plugins that help with page speed and loading times.
With mobile searches making up 68.1% of all searches on Google, mobile accessibility is a must for small business websites. Luckily, WordPress sites are automatically accessible to mobile users. You don’t have to take extra steps to set up a mobile site.
Another benefit of WordPress SEO is that it’s easy to do with plugins. Plugins are pieces of software that can be added to your WordPress site. They contain additional functionalities and can be downloaded instead of coding your own functions.
As you can see, WordPress SEO is sometimes easier than doing SEO for sites on other CMS because of plugins, automatic mobile accessibility, and more.
