So I have been seeing a ton of this from new bloggers and I can’t stress this enough please find out what you are doing wrong and how one simple trick will make your blog and Google happy.
So you got your blog your new to WordPress or your coming from Blogger and you are wondering why your not getting hits from google. Please know about of your traffic that you did get from Blogger was because exactly you was on Blogger. Now your on your own and your getting nothing. Have you taken a look at your URL format for many newbies to WordPress they are just happy to have a post up and not really looking at the Google killer right in front of you.
Here two things that I am seeing on a consistent basis and then I am going to show you step by step how to fix it right now and it will take less than five minutes.
1. Stop putting the date in your URL. Meaning you can’t re use or repurpose your post cause the date is stuck in your URL horrible move I personal resend out my holiday post every year I may change the picture but that’s it. You are killing your google search with this. Who is search for a date besides people looking for a calendar.
2. Having a post number. If your blog post is mysite.com/p=194. Stop!! Now you not getting hits cause nobody is searching for p=194.
What should be doing Aimee? So glad you asked darling you need to change the format of your blog post.
But Aimee I am new to WordPress I am scared? I promise follow my steps exactly and you will be fine.
