WordPress posts are best for creating news, sales, and other fresh content. As opposed to pages which should contain less transient information and are used to populate the main navigation of a website.
WordPress Post SEO
1. Make your title interesting to a human reader and make your URL keyword friendly for the bots.
2. Add a picture or 3.
3. Add original content, 350-500 words is normal. 10,000 words is good too if they are all original and necessary.
4. Adding your page meta description is very important to SEO, keep it short, human readable & keyword friendly. If your theme doesn’t support custom fields you may need a plugin. Just query ‘meta description’ from your /wp-admin/plugin-install.php page.
5. Add the appropriate categories.
6. Click publish. 🙂
