    Hi Nikos
    I enjoyed reading your post and there were few new things I learned. I guess there is always something to learn and you can never say that you know everything especially when it comes to the online world.
    Anyway, I also try to add videos to my posts as I have read Google likes them and it also increases the time visitors spend on my website.

    Thank you for the page speed test link! I apparently have quite a bit of work to do in this area, haha! I also didn’t know that the heading titles were anything more than cosmetic. I do have a question about optimizing images, though. My site is full of photo tutorials, is there a way to go back and fix them in the media library without having to go into each post and fixing all the images? Thanks for this, now it’s time to get to work!

      Hello Laura,

      You can use a plugin called Short Pixel. You can optimize 100 images per month for free. There is also a paid version available $10 for 10.000 images. It works on the background and it’s truly what we call “set and forget”.

      You can also use EWWW Image Optimizer. You can optimize all your images using the “bulk optimize” option. It will optimize all your images at your Media Library at once.

      Hope that helps.

      Thank you for your comment.

    Thank you for this, I’m going to turn this into a checklist and use it for every post I think, starting with going back and taking a look at my older posts first.

    Did you notice a big difference in Google rankings when you started doing this?

    I think you’re right, it does a seem a lot at first but it’s worth it and once you get into the habit it’ll just become second nature.

    I’ve spent hours writing posts but they’re stuck on the 4th page of the SERPS because I haven’t optimised them. I’m excited to take your advice and see what happens to my rankings over time. Thank you very much.

    Time for me to thanks to your info to go do some serious polishing on my site.

    Your post is very interesting and informative. I was considering getting backlinks to boost traffic to my site until I read in your post that Google does not like that. I have not been using the meta titles and meta descriptions, however I think it would be a good idea to start doing that with each post, it couldn’t hurt. At first I didn’t understand how internal linking helped rank your site, but I get it now, so I will do it more often.

    Thank you nikos for sharing this informative and valuable information on optimization. Link building is very important part of SEO and as you said content is the king. Indeed!

    • Nikos says:

      Link building is still an important part of SEO. In my opinion the best way to increase your backlinks is natural backlinking. If you publish quality content you will be able to get high quality backlinks to your blog effortlessly. SEO can not exist without great content.

      Thank you, for your comment.

    Awesome article and details of SEO .
    How to rank image of your blog post.

    • Nikos says:

      The Alt attribute is pretty important, the image file name and the image caption can also help ranking an image higher in Google. But if the post ranks high in the SERPs its images will also rank high.
