… Add Google Tag Manager to WordPress …

The first step , logically, it is to access the web of the administrator of labels, in http://google.com/tagmanager we accede with the button of " Sign in ", that normally will be associated to our existing Google account.

  • Google Tag Manager and Webmaster Tools similar to the previous one but, additionally, it allows adding go tracking code for Google Webmaster Tools.
  • Google Tag Manager very similar to the first, and just as easy to use and get going.

And that's it, basically.

Advice or guidance to get quality keywords without the need for research tools

The keywords that are used for search engine optimization are very important. Choose the right keywords and you wordpress website will get many new clients. Choosing the wrong keywords means losing a lot of time and money.

Most people focus on the keyword suggestion tools . However, there are several things you should do before using a keyword suggestion tool, even if it's in WordPress:

1. Describe what you do with easy words

Try to describe what your company does without the use of specific business words. How would you describe your company to your parents or even grandparents? These descriptions help you find new keywords that are related to your business.

2. Search for your company's unique sales proposal

What makes your company special? How does it differ from your competitors? Do you offer great service? Are the lowest prices offered? If you offer a great service, add service modifiers related to the keyword. If you do not want to sell by price, avoid words like "cheap" or "low cost" in your keyword lists.

3. Search for words with multiple meanings

Some words have several meanings. If you sell products that have names that can be confused, make sure your visitors immediately know what they are going to receive. If you sell pills, let your clients know whether they are computers, bath pills, clay tablets, chewable tablets, writing boards or graphical tables?

4. Concentrate on your most profitable products

You do not have to be listed for every keyword in the search engines. If some of your products have a small margin, it does not make sense to optimize your web pages for them. Better focus on keywords that are related to products that are profitable for your business.

5. Write the 10 most important keywords

Make a list of the 10 most important keywords and then take a look at your list. Are the referenced keywords all about the same product? Do you think you cover all aspects of your services and products with these words?

Do not follow your first instinct. Read the list carefully and see why finding an important keyword.

As optimize your web pages for search engines, start with very specific keywords that attract visitors to your services. Do not use a single keyword or keywords with multiple meanings. The more targeted the keywords are, the more likely you are to get new customers with these keywords.
