We all know how important Search engine optimization is for any website traffic, and for money. When it comes to WordPress, there are many SEO plugins out there, and to stay ahead in the world of online battle, we should stick with those plugins, which matches with current Google algorithm. Here I will be sharing review of SEOpressor plugin, which is one of the must have SEO plugin for your WordPress blog.
Earlier, I was using EasyWPSEO plugin which is very useful but later on that plugin almost stopped working. LSI feature stopped working, and no update or support came from the EasyWPSEO team. SEOPressor is a well-maintain WordPress plugin, which evolved from V1 to SEOPressor V5 now. When I had a look at features of SEOPressor, I knew this is the plugin which is going into the list of plugins I use at ShoutMeLoud. This plugin will not only solve our On page optimization need but offer so much, that you can’t resist yourself from grabbing a license of it. Lets not create anymore suspense, and let me share features and review of SEOPressor V5.
Why do you need SEOPressor WordPress plugin?
Major issue with existing SEO plugins are, they are still working on old age technology. In last 2 years, Google rolled out so many algorithmic updates (Google Panda, Google penguin, Over optimization), and many more. Specially, Google Panda was the biggest algorithm change in last 2 years. If you have read my guide on How to recover from Google panda, I talked about LSI keywords, which is one of the essential element now for On-page ranking, and is added in SEOPressor V5.
Along with that, SEOPressor added many new features like you can add star rating in Google search, and SEOPressor not only let you achieve Keyword optimization, but also it will help you in adding rich snippets in search engine. It works like a personal SEO checklist assistant for you.
Now, lets go ahead with quick review and features of SEOPressor V5.
Features of SEOPressor V5
Before, I share SEOPressor review, and features, here are few things which you should know. This will help you in using SEOPressor plugin for optimum performance. Keyword research is an essential part of SEO, and once you have your your target keywords in your hand, next step is to optimize it. Now, as we know Google algorithm is a machine language, and it looks for signals to understand what a page is about, and what keyword this page should be ranking for. You need to place the Keywords at strategic places like H1 tag, H2 tag, Meta description, Meta title, image alt text and many more things.
Along with this, you need to take care of Keyword density, add LSI keywords to make sure your article can rank for your target keywords. Most of us, ignore it and try to rank naturally by writing un-optimized SEO articles. I have one question for you: When you are writing a blog post, which is useful, and informative, why you should not rank on the top page of Google search. And if you are not ranking, that means you are missing something. You are not doing something, that others who are ranking is doing.
Here I will tell you what things SEOpressor WordPress plugin can do to help you rank higher in search engine. But, before we move ahead I recommend you to read my guide on How to do Keyword research, this will help you to make most out of this plugin. SEOPressor WordPress plugin solves this problem by letting you do all important things which is require for On-page optimization. Let’s look at some of the features:
Keyword SEO score:
This feature will let you check the SEO score of your target keyword. That means, it will check for all known working points for Keyword optimization, and based on that it will tell you how much your SEO score is. You will be also getting points which you should do, to improve the SEO score. For example: Add keywords in Post meta, Bold the keywords and so on.
The best feature of SEOPressor V5 is, you just need to click on refresh to see the updated SEO score. This will help you to stop creating unlimited WordPress draft, with every save. This is one feature, that almost all other On-Page SEO plugins are missing.
Over Optimization check:
We all know about Google’s SEO over optimization penalty, and people often over use known working SEO tips, and usually get penalized. SEOPressor also checks for SEO over optimization. In case if you have added too many H2 tags, or you used too many bold. This is very essential, because sometime with over-optimizaion, we lose good ranking of a useful post.
Rich Snippets support
Google added Rich snippets last year, and I informed you that it’s a smart way to increase CTR from Google search. SEOPressor added structured data support, and will let you add star rating on your review posts. For business sites, you can add many more details, which is accepted by all major search engine. Also, if you are adding any other plugin for the same, with SEO Pressor plugin, you can disable one more plugin.
Multiple Keywords & LSI feature:
This is one of the reason, I recommend this plugin. Today, when I was giving blog consultancy to one of my client, I was explaining him about importance of LSI keywords, and here I will repeat the same in brief:
“Newyork is a city, it could be a clothing brand name or it could be name of my dog. Now imagine, you write a post title “Newyork – my favourite”, can you figure out, out of 3 which Newyork I’m talking about?”
LSI keywords help you to find relevant keywords from your main keywords, and by adding those LSI words, you will help Search engine to understand & rank your content higher.
Automatic Smart linking:
If you have read my review of SEO smart link plugin, SEOPressor offer the same feature. Automatic smart linking plugin let you add keywords and links, which it should auto linking. This will help to improve bounce rate, increase avg. time on site, and save a lot of time. And more over, if you are using SEOpressor, you don’t need to buy SEO Smart link, which is a premium plugin.
There are many more features like Social SEO, video search and insertion, which will help you further to improve quality of your posts.
