You need people to visit your website. You need people to buy from your website, and you don’t want to be 100% reliant on ads. That’s where SEO services come in.

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, as you probably already know, but what does that mean? How do you optimize your site for a search engine to make it rank higher in search results?

Well, let’s break this down. There’s a saying that people don’t look past page one of the search results, maybe page two if they’re desperate. However, if you want to be found in the search results, you need to be in the Top 3 listings on Google for your search keywords.

Did you catch that?

I said, you need to be at the top for your search keywords. In the 90s you could just stuff your keywords everywhere on the page a bunch of times to rank, or use the meta keywords tag. Those days are long gone, and now you actually need to work for it. Don’t worry though, the plugins I’m going to show you will take out a LOT of the guess work so you can focus just on the keywords you want to rank for.

SEO Services: All In One SEO Plugin

AIOSEO is a plugin that lets you set your focus keyword, and find long tail keywords to rank easier. It effectively gives you a dynamic checklist of things to finish to make sure your page is SEO optimized. It also has readability and SEO scores on the post edit screen and the list of posts. That helps you to help you see your page’s scores at a glance to help you adapt your page for success.

Yoast SEO

Yoast SEO is an alternative to AIOSEO, and there are subtle differences between the two. If you find that one doesn’t fit your needs, try the other one. They both have premium options, and they both have proven very effective from what I’ve seen. As a former journalist, we used Yoast SEO services to help our articles rank, and it worked wonderfully.

W3 Total Cache

W3 Total Cache speeds up your website so that people actually stick around. See our guide on website speed optimization to lean more about speeding up your site, and keeping it optimized. The speed of your site over time plays an important role in how well your site ranks. If you have the world’s slowest site, then why would Google make you #1 in the search results?


Semrush is one of the most well known tools for serious SEO. It comes at a fairly high price tag, but they’re number one for a reason: it gets you the data you need. From competitive analysis to site audits, and SEO services for keywords, it really has everything you need.

Google Search Console

Who better to learn how well your site is doing, than from Google itself? The Google Search Console shows you how many “search clicks” your site is getting over time.
