The Road To Google's Page 1 In Toronto Is Under Construction. Hire Me...Or Keep Walking!

Are you based in Toronto? Looking for a Toronto webmaster specializing in Search Engine Optimization?

Toronto is the third largest city in North America, and the largest city in Canada.  Being a huge metropolitan hub, the greater Toronto area has about 6.28 million residents, from all races and nationalities. Every business in the greater Toronto area will benefit from a well optimized website that will get found and pull in a significant amount of new business coming from Google organic search results.

Optimizing a website for Google is actually not complicated at all. The big agencies try to make SEO look complex and difficult. Its not. No complex mathematical formulas or algorithms are required. And Google plays fair. If you create a simple, straightforward site, without playing games, no tricks, no key words stuffing, just plain common sense English describing your product or service, you will rank well.  Of course you will need good knowledge of a website structure, and you will need to know what Google looks for and where.

It all boils down to good original content and smart use of HTML tags, post tags, and all this comes with… experience.  If you had to cross the Sahara desert, would you hire an agency that will provide you with a “newbie guide”, or would you rather hire a freelancer who has been crossing the Sahara back and forth for 25 years…?  That’s what I thought.

WordPress Post Tags Are The Most Powerful SEO Tool Ever!

Everything You Need To Know About WordPress Tags And How To Unleash Their Incredible Power:

WordPress tags play a crucial role in organizing your site’s posts, as posts are placed in archives called tags. They help boost your page views and offer a great experience to your site visitors. But beyond user experience, tags are a “ranking probability multiplier” that will enhance your SEO strategy and boost your visibility in search engines exponentially. To understand WordPress post tags, you need to first understand some fundamentals. Did you know that every page of a website is in fact…2 pages? First there is the “real” page, called the HTML page, containing all content, but also containing code and CSS instructions to the browser about how to display the page.

When you download and then view a page, you are seeing it the way the browser is showing it to you, but the real original page is “behind” the page you are viewing. That original page is called the “source page”. To view it, right click on the mouse, and select the option “view page source”.

The most important element on the source page is the HTML title. This title is the very first thing Google looks at. To view the HTML title, you can look at the page source, or easier and faster, hover your mouse over the browser tab and the html title will be displayed. Not to be confused with the H1 text title on the page the browser is showing you.

Did you know the founders of Google majored in Library studies? Google’s basic search criterion is the exact same criteria as used in libraries when searching for a book. Books are searched based on their TITLE. This is the fundamental way to find a book in a library, and this is the fundamental way to find a web page as well. This logic has never changed.

If you search for “How to optimize a website”, Google will offer webpages with the HTML title “How to optimize a website”. Books always have only ONE title, but in WordPress, the “book”, i.e. the post, can have multiple HTML titles, which can make the post come up in many different searches for different key words. When you create a post, you can add relevant tags. When WordPress publishes the post, it will automatically create archives, one archive for each tag. Each archive will contain the blog you just posted. If you created 100 tags in the post, within several seconds, WordPress will create 100 pages with your new post, but each one of these 100 pages has a unique HTML title! The archive title is “the tag”.  In this case, with 100 tags in your post, you are giving yourself 100 different ways to be found by Google, Bing and Yahoo!

For example, if a tag is “Best SEO Tip Ever”, the HTML title of the archive is “Best SEO Tip Ever”! Inserting 100 tags into a post will save you all the time and work involved in creating 100 different pages with different HTML titles MANUALLY, WordPress does all this for you, in seconds! This is the best and most powerful SEO tool, because instead of having just one page with one HTML title, you now have 100 pages with different HTML titles, multiplying your chances to rank by 100! And this is “per blog”. If you post 10 blogs on your site, and add 100 tags to each one, you now have 1000 pages competing for ranking instead of just 10!

Regardless of what your site is about, there are surely thousands of different searches that are relevant to your site… Ideally you will have thousands of pages with thousands of different HTML titles so regardless of which key words the searcher types into the browser; you will have a page with a HTML title that matches this key phrase perfectly! And the only easy and fast way to create thousands of pages with thousands of different titles is by inserting tags into WordPress posts.

Is this powerful enough for you? In addition, the actual tags themselves on the post contribute to the post’s content, and if you create your tags wisely, with the most relevant keywords to your subject matter, you are at the same time increasing the content value of the page itself, as the tags become a part of the page content. You might not fully appreciate the power of this WordPress feature, but I can tell you that many years ago, I used to create websites with straight HTML, (a long time before WordPress even existed), nothing was automated, and I had to create page by page, manually, if I wanted more pages with more titles! WordPress Tags are insanely good!

I should mention that no one really knows how many post tags can be inserted into a post. Most experts claim 5-15 tags are ideal, but they offer no explanation as to how they arrived at these numbers…the claims are baseless. I believe, based on multiple projects, that up to 99 tags per post is alright, and more than that there is a risk of the tags being considered keywords stuffing. If you want to play it safe, you can divide the post into 3 smaller posts, and insert 33 tags into each one, you will still have the 99 tags you want, albeit pages will be shorter.

David Is A Senior SEO Consultant In Toronto

I have been working as an SEO freelancer in the Toronto area since a few years ago.

Toronto  is a vibrant large bustling city, and the demand for professional SEOs is high.

The word “SEO” has multiple definitions, but my personal definition of SEO is this:

Anything that will impact a website’s ranking on a search engine is SEO (search engine optimization) work.

Here is a quick example:

Recently my rankings and traffic were down on Bing, I couldn’t figure out why.

After further investigation, I discovered that my hosting company, in an attempt to block bot traffic, inadvertently blocked Bingbot.

Once Bing was blocked from crawling my site, my traffic started to disappear.

Yes, this is SEO because it impacts traffic and ranking. The experienced SEO professional will check everything, every possible aspect that can impact traffic to a website.

Well, after all the SEO tips and tricks mentioned on this site, I am not really sure what I can possibly add, so how about this:

Can I interest you in the best, most powerful, most logical SEO strategy ever…?

  • Create many blogs and pages, try different styles, different content, longer, shorter, everything.
  • Follow your Google analytics and Search Console daily.
  • Sooner or later you will discover that one page or blog in particular is ranking well on Google.
  • Once you know which page Google likes, you duplicate it.. hundreds or times.
  • Each duplicated page is optimized for a different city, by entering the city name into HTML tag elements like Title and Description.
  • You will also insert the city name in the actual content; usually in the H1 to H5 headers, as well as in some paragraphs.
  • That’s it. With one good page, you can rank well in hundreds of cities and pull in massive traffic!

You will notice this SEO blog is very different from all the others. Short and sweet, with unique original content, let’s hope Google likes it.

So now you know the big SEO secret. This is why digital marketing agencies need many months to increase your traffic; they need to create all the various types of blogs and pages, wait to see which one is ranking the best, and then duplicate it. This is SEO website optimization in a nutshell.

SEO Locations

Google is extremely focused on geo-location. The dominant factor in any search results is the city where the service or product is offered. Google assumes that every search is a local search. Which is why I created various city profiles.
