Goal for today:
- Get to 1,500 Words. Fix All Issues.
Try getting your page’s content to 1,500 Word (this is a requirement for turning the element for the Words/Page task green in Focus Pages).
Secret: sometimes, you can do it by adding comments, FAQs, etc. Extra info that still gets indexed by Google and doesn’t ruin the overall keyword optimization with Live Assistant for the main keyword.
I know a lot of people can get overwhelmed when they hear about this, especially:
- people who are not writers themselves;
- people who don’t have access to a team of writers.
However, facts remain:
- studies show that pages ranked TOP 10 in Google have an average of 1,800 words.
- we had success even with 1,500 words pages (which also had many Focus Pages elements turned Green, of course. They go hand-in-hand). Therefore, this is our minimum.
- it’s easy to write 1,500 words on a page, once you remove all the anxiety that hearing this might trigger. If you start thinking that you can do it, you’ll become super creative about the 1,500 words.
Is it easy to write 1,500 words?
Yes, because you can fill up a lot of space by using valuable FAQs (frequently asked questions) and answering them on the page.
I recently had this question from an Origami artist: “how could I possibly write 1,500 words on this page?” She was talking about a Focus Page where she was showcasing some of her works.
The answer? – FAQs.
It can be anything like: “what type of paper should I use to create these origami models?” or “which paper is thick enough to pull this off?” or “is there any shop you recommend for buying the paper?” or “how do you start folding the paper to get it shaped properly?” and a lot of other details which people might be asking themselves about the process of creating such great works.
With this answer, she was able to pull it off. You’ll be able, too!
Now that you know how to write 1,500 words on your Focus Page, let’s move on to the other important tasks you need to complete on Day 12.
Fix remaining SEO Problems
Now: I say fix remaining SEO problems… However, you should know that SEO problems which are verified by Focus Pages, the SEO Audit, Bulk SEO Settings, and the Next SEO Goals can appear again in your WordPress site, especially if you have multiple people working on it.
Sometimes, it can even be because of new things you did on WordPress or new things you tried.
Working on your WordPress shouldn’t be stressful, and you shouldn’t be afraid to experiment with new tactics. Which is why we made sure that Squirrly SEO will keep an eye on everything for you. When problems come up, Squirrly will let you know of them and what you need to do.
All of these extra verifications we’re making to provide unmatched oversight were a necessity, not a fad. We’ve seen people fail at SEO time and again, just because they didn’t have a system in place for checking everything. The good news is: you don’t need to be one of them.
Just follow the instructions from Squirrly SEO, and you’ll always be top of your game. This is why Assisted WordPress SEO completely changes the game.
Make sure you fix ALL problems with duplicate titles, duplicate METAs, empty titles, empty METAs from your site. The SEO Audit will warn you of these.
Platform Health and Platform SEO columns from Focus Pages are very important. That’s because, even if your focus page is amazing, it can still be dragged down in search rankings by other pages on your site.
These two main categories of ranking factors help you against that.
Now, go to the Overview section of Squirrly SEO. Click on: Run SEO Test >>
See if anything shows up. If it does, fix it.
So now you should have a good WordPress site to support your Focus Page. And your focus page is long enough and valuable enough to be competitive.
To complete Day 12, go to Google Search Console and ask it to re-index your Focus Page.
