Actually it is a key that helps Google to find amazing content of your website and blog post. Certainly I know that there are lots of other ways to optimize your content with Wordpress website design best practice but this one should come first. It’s because search engines always look for clues from us to figure out what a specific page or post is about. And get us ranked for those keywords On the basis of Keyword Research you can actually know the words your potential visitors/customers are using and then you can add those in the critical places that Google looks. I hope next time you will create a piece of content page or post make sure to give Google the right “signs” by placing your well-researched keywords in exactly the right places. 5.
