“Yes absolutely thrilled with the website and service. Thanks also for the addition of the mailing list link. Looks really good. I hope you are pleased as I am with the site. I have also been testing SEO. I am on page 1 on google for bespoke furniture cornwall, bespoke kitchens cornwall and bespoke shelving cornwall. Page 2 for garden furniture cornwall. Good work!”
Out of the box WordPress is already SEO friendly but when you add the Yoast SEO plugin it makes for a powerful partnership. The website is broken down into categories including kitchens, furniture and outdoor furniture. Doing it this way makes it very easy for vistiors and for Google to identify exactly what your website is all about. Google can see several content items under Kitchen design so it is not difficult for it to work out that is one of the main keywords for the website. The same follows for the other main categories/keywords.
I was very careful to make sure I included the right Alternative tags and titles for the images. The alternative tags enable Google to know what the image is all about because crawlers cannot see images. It also helps visually impaired people, whose screen readers speak the tags. It is important to accurately describe what the image contains and doing that should naturally optimise your keywords. All of the website Metatags are automatically populated with the page or post title so no work for Sam to do there. However, if he chooses to he can update all of this title and description tags to fine tune the SEO.
Sam has moved up Google since the site was built and number one, page one positions for his major keywords. It is great to see and Sam is certainly fully booked, which is a very nice problem to have. It just goes to prove that good quality content, optimised naturally really does work to get your website a good ranking.
