Content SEO for Wordpress with Yoast and Linkdex
To make it into competitive positions on the search results pages of popular search engines, you will need well optimized content. If you’re running WordPress as your CMS platform, you are likely well aware that many plugins exist to make the job of optimizing the content featured on your site a bit more manageable.
One of the best on the market is the Wordpress SEO plugin from Joost de Valk. The plugin has received a lot of well-warranted attention in the past but it’s gotten better today with a new feature which provides a content SEO analysis courtesy of an integration with Linkdex.
What the partnership provides users of the WordPress SEO plugin is page-level analysis of their content. Users of the plugin will see different types of messages which may help or hinder their SEO ranking efforts. For example, users might see a message such as “the images on this page do not have alt tags containing your keyword or phrase.”
Other messages can concern meta descriptions, page titles, the use of headings, the number of links, the length of a post or page's copy, the keyword density and the Flesch Reading Ease score for the page. This is extremely valuable feedback for hurried content creators and search engine optimization professionals charged with re-optimizing content.
