Since joining your academy, it ahs vecome my bible… I have moved my original website form a ‘free MS-officelive site’ to a proper web site. I have then moved my personal cake gallery to you, and now moving my husbands… each time, i am back and forth with your amazing tutorials.. However I am still TOTALLY Clueless with the SEO… I recently added ‘AllinoneSEO’ seemed to get a lot of reviews.. but i am completely lost as to what shoudl go where, what i am doing right or more likely wrong… and am TOTALLY lost without one of your tutorials to guide me through… patiently waiting… as even though my site was live for 18months previously i appear to have NO google rankings, and no SEO at all?

I’m going to do this next week. The tutorial will be based on using this plugin http://yoast.com/wordpress/seo/ which is great :)

A couple of questions….
If a domain name is with one provider and the hosting is with another does it effect the sites SEO?
And if a customer has their own domain which will have a wordpress site on it soon, can I import their very popular wordpress blog into the new site without losing its ranking and the people that subscribe to it?

Here are your answers
1) If a domain name is with one provider and the hosting is with another does it effect the sites SEO?
ANSWER) Nope this will not effect your SEO at all
2) Can I import their very popular wordpress blog into the new site without losing its ranking and the people that subscribe to it.
ANSWER) Yes if you move the blog from another domain to your new domain then the blog will loose it’s existing SEO.November 8, 2012 at 3:07 pm #7166
What about the people that subscribe to their blog, will they automatically follow?November 8, 2012 at 3:10 pm #7168
It depends what service they are using to subscribe? Do you know what they are using (mailchimp, jetpack etc??)

Not sure, I’ll find out! Thank you :)December 13, 2012 at 2:07 pm #7397
To pick this thread up again, the customer defiantly wants to have their blog contained within their website. So how do I import a blog from here http://homeopathyuk.wordpress.com to here http://www.alanfreestone.co.uk
SusannaDecember 14, 2012 at 7:22 pm #7401
The easiest way is to export the content from the old blog (tools/export) and then import into the new website (tools/import).
Is this what you mean?

I have just watched your Tutorial videos on SEO and WordPress using the Yoast Plugin. They answered a lot of my questions.A big thank you.
I recently attended a workshop on SEO, and we were told by the presenter (not for the first time had I heard this), that meta tags are no longer searched by the Search Engines.
My question is, do meta tags refer to bespoke code written websites, and is the meta description as used in the Yoast SEO plugin something different?
Thank you.July 9, 2015 at 3:25 pm #21235
Thank you for the feedback :)
Yes meta tags are different to meta description. Google now takes no notice of meta tags so you don’t need to worry about them.
Meta description has value and this is what the yoast seo plugin lets you write per page and per post.
