**SEO changes all the time. I recommend that you stay up to date on best practices as the algorithm changes.**

Have you neglected the tagline of your blog? For WordPress users, is your blog still “just another WordPress site” or have you completed the information in the “general” section?

Now, this is something for EVERYONE regardless of your hosting or theme situation. Watch this video to learn the other MOST important spots on your blog for SEO.

Then, watch this video to know the most important places within a blog post for SEO.

  1. The second video was the most helpful, simple & clear way SEO has ever been explained to me. THANK YOU!
