You’ve found a dinosaur, this post is only here for archiving purposes. The content is outdated and is not applicable anymore.
Last week I’ve been busy on how to optimize askmike.org. I think it’s better to start with an optimized website instead of optimizing it later on. Before I dive into the optimizing it is important to look at the word optimizing. When I’m talking about optimizing a website for the web (or in other words website optimizing). I’m talking about a few things at the same time:
- Semantic Markup
- Off page SEO (mostly backlinking)
- On page SEO
- Adding Meta keywords
- Adding Meta description
- Trying to add more internal links by a WordPress plugin (related posts maybe?)
- Adding a sitemap and submitting it to Google
- Making a user friendly sitemap.
- Thinking about what keywords I should aim on, what content will be posted here?
- Making it possible to share content on this site to Facebook and Twitter
- Doing some specific tweaks to the WordPress theme
- Changing the permalinks style of WordPress (more search engine and user friendly)
I’m going to document a lot of these things when I’m a little further on my research. Because right now a lot of things on the list is not finished.
