WordPress SEO Rank Checker Plugin

I just wrote a short post over on my WOrdpress support site WordPressclinic.com.au about a new WordPress plugin called SEO Rank Reporter.

Basically, the WordPress SEO Rank reporter plugin allows users to add specific keywords you want to rank for and updates their ranking every 3 days. Imagine optimising a new post for let’s say the keyword phrase ‘add url to google’ and then being able to keep tabs on how well or badly this keyword is ranking for you. And you will be able to update the rankings every 3 days.

What you have to keep in mind is that the Google TLD used in the WordPress SEO Rank Repoter is the .com Because I am an Australian and optimise my website for local Australian results I was able to modify the .php files so that my results were from google.com.au

I have a full review of this new WordPress plugin at WordPress Clinic and you can read it and download it form here: WordPress SEO Rank Checker

Features Your Web Site Must Have

Just don’t focus on the home page, keywords and titles.

The first step to sales when customers visit your site to see the products they were looking for. Of course, search engine optimization and better rankings can’t keep your customer on your site or make them buy. The customer having visited your site, you must now ensure that he gets interested in your products or services and stays around.

Motivate him to buy the product by providing clear and unambiguous information. Thus if you happen to sell more than one product or service, provide all necessary information about this, may be by keeping the information at a different page. By providing suitable and easily visible links, the customer can navigate to these pages and get the details.

Understanding Your Target Customer:

If you design a website you think will attract clients, but you don’t really know who your customers are and what they want to buy, it is unlikely you make much money. Website business is an extension or replacement for a standard storefront. You can send email to your existing clients and ask them to complete a survey or even while they are browsing on your website.

Ask them about their choices. Why do they like your products? Do you discount prices or offer coupons? Are your prices consistently lower than others? Is your shipping price cheaper? Do you respond faster to client questions? Are your product descriptions better? Your return policies and guarantees better than your competitor’s? To know your customer you can check credit card records or ask your customer to complete a simple contact form with name, address, age, gender, etc. when they purchase a product.

Does your website give enough contact information?

When you sell from a website, your customer can buy your products 24 hrs a day and also your customers may be from other states that are thousands of miles away. Always provide contact information, preferably on every page of your website, complete with mailing address, telephone number and an email address that reaches you.

People may need to contact you about sales, general information or technical problems on your site. Also have your email forwarded to another email address if you do not check your website mailbox often. When customer wants to buy online provide enough options like credit card, PayPal or other online payment service.

Be Sure to incorporate these simple features into your website and you will most certainly reap the benefits in increased
