Are you trying to generate more traffic to your art blog? In this post, I am going to talk about how WordPress Themes can affect your SEO.
Generating more traffic to our artist website is something we are all working for.
It takes more than just posting images of your art or writing blog posts to rank high in search.
- Visibility Settings
- Permalink Structure
- SEO Plugins
- Google Console
- Proper Use of Categories and Tags
- HTTPS URL
- High-Quality Content
- Site Speed
- Optimized Images
- Low Bounce Rate
Even though these are very important for SEO, you need to start at the nucleus of your site.
SEO starts with a high-quality Theme.
No matter how good your content is or how many times a week you publish posts, without implementing a basic SEO strategy you will never rank high in Google’s search results.
If you are interested in optimizing your site for the search engines you have to start at the very beginning. You need to have a high-quality, well-built WordPress Theme.
It is relatively basic but it is so important for you to pick a Theme that is SEO friendly and secure.
There are thousands of free and paid Themes that are available for WordPress. Unfortunately, some Themes are built poorly.
The first step in choosing a Theme is to go to a trusted developer. These are going to be Premium Themes which you will have to pay for.
I use and recommend StudioPress Themes when purchasing Themes for WordPress.
Not only do they have a lot of different designs to choose from but they are in my opinion the best-made Themes available.
- Rock-solid Security
- Blazing Fast Performance
- Out-of-the-box SEO
- Mobile-responsive Designs
- Flexible Foundational Code
These five features are exactly what you are looking for in a WordPress Theme.
After you have installed a quality WordPress Theme, start working on the other SEO basics I listed above.
If you are planning on selling art online, you need to build an online presence and have a place where people can purchase your art. Your artist website is going to be the nucleus of your online business. Keep in mind that you get what you pay for. If you are serious about starting an online business you should start by investing in a Premium Theme.
