(Re)Building K-Director.com Blog – Phase 2 (Search Engine Optimization)
Appearance is the very first impression given to your visitors. That’s why I concentrated in re-designing K-Director.com in phase 1.
In phase 2, I have implemented Search Engine Optimization changes for K-Director.com. I will be talking more about the SEO plugins needed and elements to attract more traffics to this (your) blog.
Robots Meta Plugin Installed
This plugin allows you to add all the appropriate robots meta tags to your pages and feeds and handle unused archives in order to prevent indexing unnecessary pages.
If you have no idea on how to write a robot.txt, this plugin might be your savior.
After you install this plugin, you will find this code <meta name="robots" content="noodp,noydir" /> in your site’s source code.

Added ‘Link’ Tag
A “link” tag defines a URL of some other related page. It does not display anything or cause anything to happen by itself, it’s just metadata defining some other related page.
The “rel” attribute defines the relationship of that page to this one.
The rel=”archives” is defining pages where the content on this page will be seen in the future.
To create the archive links in your own page, add this to your theme’s header.php file:
<?php wp_get_archives(‘type=monthly&format=link’); ?>
Installed All in One SEO Pack Plugin
This is a highly recommended plugin for your blog. It controls the 4 most important on-page ranking factors and how they are addressed – Titles, Descriptions, Keywords and Duplicate Content.
This SEO pack is designed to give you the best options out of the box. Moreover, it’s editable and you have the full control of it.

Reinstalled Similar Post Plugin
‘Related Post’ or ‘Similar Post’ is always another alternative to provide your readers a convenient method to read your other posts. It makes an infinity post circle for your readers to stay longer in your blog.
However, I faced some technical problems when installing “Related Post Plugin”. Therefore, I am now using “Similar Post Plugin”for the same purpose. Both of these plugins search your content’s keywords and then display similar posts which match your keywords.
(I have installed it but not yet really spend time on designing it to make it outstanding yet.)

Installed MyBlogLog and BlogRush
I have installed MyBlogLog and BlogRush at the bottom of this blog.
For your information, MyBlogLog is a blogger community that is based in part on interactions facilitated by a popular web widget that many members install on their blog while BlogRush is a “Cooperative Syndication Network” that rewards its users for their contributions to the network.
In coming phase 3, I will focus more on changes that monetize my blog.
