SEO for WordPress: “How I hit page #1 of Google in 27 days!”
Chapter 7 - Analyze Your On-Page SEO For Free
Use Traffic Travis to review your on-page SEO. Traffic Travis is a free software that you can download from their official website here: www.traffictravis.com
You’ll have to register your name and email to download the product. Use your real email address because they’re going to email you a “product key” that you’ll need to access the tool.
After you launch the software and enter the product key, the program will start to play a video showing you how to use the software. You can close that video for now and watch it later. That same video will start again every time to open the software.
After you close the video, you’ll be presented with three options:
Create New Project
Let Me Play
Choose the “Let me Play” option, and then click the tab on the top left that says “My Site.”
After you click the “My Site” tab, another video will open showing you how to use the “My Site” feature. You can watch that video if you’d like, but I’m going to show you how to use it now. On the top left, click the button that says “import pages.”
Traffic Travis will ask you to import your sitemap file. Your sitemap file will look like this:
After you enter your sitemap, scroll down and click the box that says “Import Keywords from Meta Keywords.” When you’re finished, click the “OK” button.
After you click “OK” Traffic Travis will start to analyze your website. After it’s finished, you’ll see a column that says “Page Warning.”
Within that page warning column you’ll see a “number” if you have any on-page SEO problems. Click on the number to find out how you can fix your on-page SEO. Below is an example of an error I found on one of my websites.
Based on the error message, it looks like my meta description is less than 120 characters. Now that I see what’s wrong, I can go back to my website, make the changes myself, and then come back to Traffic Travis and analyze my website again. If I receive a “green check” next to the meta description section, then the problem is solved!
There’s no need to pay an S.E.O. company $800.00 to review your website and tell you how to fix it. You can do this by yourself in less than 5 minutes for free.
Summary & Action Plan
Analyze your entire website for free using Traffic Travis (www.traffictravis.com). Using traffic travis you need to:
Click on the “my site” tab
Click on “import pages”
Enter your sitemap URL (YourDomainName.com/sitemap.xml)
The only thing holding you back from getting on the first page of Google now is backlinks to your website.
Once again, you don’t need to pay an S.E.O. company $500 - $1000 to get backlinks to your website. You can easily build backlinks yourself, or outsource it to someone else for cheap. In the next chapter, I’ll go into more detail about backlinks and off-page optimization.
