Rank Math Setup Tutorial
We’re going to see how to set up Rank Math in this video. We’re going to walk you through the whole process of setting up and using the Rank Math SEO plug-in. Rank Math can now be set up much more quickly. Other YouTube videos are substantially lengthier in the current edition. In my opinion, the setup process for the current edition of Rank Math has been greatly simplified.
Rank Math will be installed, and I’ll show you how to use it to produce SEO-friendly content for your WordPress site. In this video, you’ll find all of this. Keep watching if you’d want to learn more. We may add new plugins in the plugins section of our WordPress dashboard. To find Rank Math, we’ll use this method.
The first one to appear here will almost certainly be Rank Math. Install and activate Rank Math, and then you’ll be good to go. We’re done now. And the setup wizard will begin to run as a result. As you can see, this isn’t too difficult to follow.
Rank Math Account
Connecting a Rank Math account is simple. To view the terms of service, you must first click on the link. During this demonstration, I’ll use Google, but you may use your own account if you choose. You’ll get a notification here that the login information has been delivered to our email. You’ll get an email with your log-in information.
Log in by clicking on the appropriate link. We’ll be sent to our Rank Math account when we do so. I’m currently logged in to a free Rank Math account. Once we’ve signed into our browser, we can proceed to the WordPress Dashboard to finish the configuration. So let’s go back to the WordPress Dashboard.
Once we return to Rank Math, we’ll be able to link our account. Let’s click okay now. It’s better to use the Easy Mode Wizard for the first time. If you need to make a modification later, you can always switch it to advance, but for now, this will take care of everything. As a result of industry best practices, this process is also significantly faster.
Rank Math Setup Wizard
Let’s start the wizard in Easy mode. The following step will check if you have any other SEO plugins installed, and if so, it will import their data. Most people use Yoast, however, if you switch to Rank Meth, the data from Yoast will automatically be imported, making the switch easier. So we’ll just start the import, wait for it to finish, and then we’ll be done. Then we hit the Continue button.
Yoast will also be deactivated after this procedure is complete. It’s fine. Fill in the details of our website here. Consequently, the Pet Care website most likely falls under the category of a side hustle. Web Shop might be useful if you’re working on anything else, like a WooCommerce website.
If you’re a content marketer or an affiliate marketer, a personal blog may be the best option for you. Because of this, it’s very likely the case. Let’s use the Small Business Administration’s website for this, and fill in the rest of the information there. Find a company type that works for you now. Choose an organization or a small local company if you can’t discover anything suitable.
We’ll use Local Business and enter the name of a business here. For this presentation and Google logo, I’m naming it Ideal Pets. The logo has been automatically removed from our theme on the next page. The preference is for a square picture, so if you have a square version of your logo, use that. In fact, there is a square version in this room.
That’s the one I’ll go with. In the event that you don’t have a square version of your logo, you may create one on Canva.com or another comparable service. This is the picture that appears when you share something on social media by default. This is a critical point to note. The default picture will be used if you don’t provide one for a particular post or page.
So it proposes a resolution of 1200 x 30. Here’s one I concocted on the go. 220 by 635 images Picking a photograph is a good place to start. Remove all text, logos, and visuals from the page.
Just a photo of a satisfied client or a satisfied product user will do. This all appears to be in order. Just save your progress and keep going. Google search console will be the next phase. As a result, it’s now fully automated and a cinch to use.
Only one button is on the device. We’ll be able to access our Rank Math account using this. As a result, our Rank Math SEO will be linked to Google. Log in to your Google account now and allow analytics and search console access. Click the Continue button to proceed.
After connecting to your Google account, you’ll see any Google search consoles and statistics you have set up here. This drop-down menu has all of the options you’ll need to choose from. The data I want to see is all in Ideaspot Site and Ideaspot Properties Idea Spot. After that, we can switch on or off email reports. It’s not that important. After that, we save our progress and go on.
Titles and Meta section
Now that everything has been completed, we may return to the dashboard. This will bring us back to the Titles and Meta portion of our Rank Math’s Titles and Meta section. So these are the final few things we need to take care of before we’re done with our setup here. For the most part, this has already been done. Let us now go to the next section.
We need to enter an email address here, and then we may enter our own address. When we go to Google, we want to be able to type in our address exactly as it appears here. If you haven’t claimed your business on Google yet, you’ll hear about it here. That’s why we entered the address. Suppose this was the case with Google My Business, where our address was stored there.
Take a note of it. Make sure this is precisely the same as what is listed in your Google My Business account before submitting. So there you have it: your street address, your neighborhood, your area, your postcode or zip code, and your nation. Go to Google My Business if you haven’t already and sign in to have your business listed there. The opening hours can be left as they are.
Make sure that your business’s hours of operation are consistent with those shown on Google My Business, as well. Then we may assume that Sundays are off-limits for us. As a result, I’m thinking of removing it and just changing the hours to match the ones you use for your own work. After that, we’ll add a contact number. Take note of the formatting.
With the country code in front of the plus sign, we have a mobile phone number with no leading zeros. Our phone number would look something like this if we were in Australia, so we’d enter our country code 61, followed by three digits, followed by three numbers. So, that’s Australia, right? When calling from a mobile phone in the United States, you’d have a country code plus an additional digit for the mobile network. That would be in keeping with the overall structure.
Now you know the pricing range for your products and services. What I mean is that for cheap services, it’s one; for luxury, it’s 4. Because of this, most individuals choose to have two or three. Rather than three, I’ll choose two. To ensure that every site has a “About Us” and “Contact Us” page, we have designated these pages.
On this page, you may learn more about who we are and how to get in contact with us. I like to keep things simple by calling and emailing them, but it’s entirely up to you. It’s not that important. In this scenario, for example. There is an about page and a contact page for getting in touch with us.
Connect Google Maps
These are the ones I’m going to go with. Entering them here will bring them to you. Entering a Google Maps API key is the next step. Alternatively, you can just embed a Google Map on your about page and your contact page and get your API key that way. To help you out, I’ll show you how.
A new block can be added when modifying a page. We’d want to include some HTML. There you have it. After that, all we have to do is obtain the Google Map embed code. So, let’s pretend we’re at this address.
When we go to Share on Google Maps, we merely want to copy the URL and paste it into our website. Make a copy of this. Maps of various sizes are available. A small, medium, or enormous. If I had to choose, I’d pick the medium one.
We’re good to go after that. We may preview Google Maps by clicking the preview button. If you’re using the Astra theme, you may also utilize the ultimate add-ons for Gutenberg blocks. A map block is really given to you as a result of this. In other words, if you put “maps” into this box, you’ll be sent to a Google map.
Google Maps API Alternative
There’s an entrance there. If you don’t want to link your Embed API, you may use any of these techniques instead. Let’s finish with your geocoordinates and add them in. Google Maps has such information as well. Just right-click on your location and copy the coordinates.
Right near the top, you’ll see a button that says “Copy to the clipboard.” Just copy and paste the coordinates from the previous step into this one. As a result, we’re all set to go. Starting here, you have the option of leaving everything as is. Basically, you may want to change some of these little details, such as the Separator character in your title.
You’ll get a Hyphen as a standard feature. Instead, you may use a vertical pipe. That’s what some prefer. This is the only one I’m not a fan of, but everything else is ok with me. If your company has a presence on Facebook or Twitter, you may wish to include your Facebook and Twitter URLs and usernames on your website.
That, however, is an alternative. Other than that, all of the settings are already on. SEO best practices have already been used. So we can just leave it all as it is and be OK. I believe that the best thing we can do right now is to actually write some content and optimize it for search engines.
Optimize for Search Engines with Rank Math
I’ll be right back when I finish this one. My post is ready to go. Let’s go to work on the revisions. It will be interesting to watch how our post’s SEO has improved now that we’ve implemented Rank Math. I’ve written a post outlining why we should acquire a Beagle in a draft here.
I’m trying to keep my pet care theme consistent. We’re debating the merits of getting a Beagle. This Rank Math score is just 14 out of 100. Let’s see if we can improve this and make it more visible to search engines. You’ll see right away that you can switch between your post settings and the Rank Math settings by clicking on the gear button.
Here are all the Rank Math recommendations we need to improve the post’s search engine optimization (SEO). The first step is to pick a focus keyword. A search keyword that we are trying to improve our rankings for. So I’m trying to figure out how to get the most out of this. I’m thinking about changing my title to that as well to see if it helps. We’re already at 52 points out of 100, so there’s no reason to go any higher.
Our headline and target keywords matched, and we got that much traffic. For this reason, we’re focusing our attention on the title and not the SEO meta description. The meta description is based on the first paragraph in this section, so that’s all. So, I’ll put the search term to the first phrase of this title here, if that makes sense. So it goes without saying that bagels are one of my favorite foods.
So, what’s the point of getting Beagle? This means that we’ve got our keyword in the meta description, but it isn’t in the URL. Returning to the post settings, we can see our permanent link URL by looking for our post in the list. So, what’s the point of getting Beagle? That’s OK.
Try resaving the file to check if it has picked up the error. As a result, I’ve decided to keep it here. Retrace our steps and confirm that everything is in order. It’s now part of the URL, too. Maybe we have to save the draft after making a title change so it didn’t take up the new title.
So it appears to be working properly now. What if you don’t know what any of these terms mean? Specify where you can click to bring up a tooltip by marking it. If you’d like, I’ll show you the next one. Two hundred seventy-seven words. There you go.
Basically, you want to be above 600, and a score of over 2500 will get you a perfect score. It’s best to write a lengthy, detailed piece. As a rule of thumb, 1200 is a good number for most keywords. As a result, I’ll leave it at that. Six more mistakes have been found.
The focus keyword does not appear in any of the subheadings in this section. As a result, we could simply add that to a subheading. We’re done now. In addition, it has been moved to the subheading. The good news is that it’s all in order.
Add an image with the emphasis keyword as the alt text so that we can easily accomplish it. When you add an image, we’ll find an image for you. We’re done now. You may check out our media collection as well. There’s a good chance we already have a Beagle in the house.
You can see it in the distance. We want to create an alternative text for that image, so let’s go ahead and pick it. You will receive a Beagle as soon as we include that in the equation. Image alt attributes are now checked off my to-do list. So that’s 71 now.
We’re getting closer to the finish line. It has a low keyword density of zero-point sixteen percent. The focus keyword should occur at least twice. This phrase appears just twice in the entire essay. In that case, we may go ahead and use whitegettable in our paragraphs now
Use it as many times as possible without detracting from the article’s readability, but be sure to do it in a style that’s natural sounding. Instead of saying “yeah,” “yes,” or “that’s right,” we may add it in here. We could increase y in size. Put that in there, please. Replace this.
What are the benefits of owning a Beagle? Beagles are extremely affectionate and like being cuddled. That makes perfect sense. We’ve now reached number three. Let’s go ahead and repeat it, shall we?
Rather than repeat myself, I’m going to go forward and do so at regular intervals. So I’m simply going to jump ahead a few paragraphs. The keyword density is now set to one. Thirteen times out of 1279 words. As a result, divide your word count by 100.
That’s the maximum number of times you should use that term in a post. Link to external resources and utilize a do-follow link, according to the instructions. As a result, a reputable website was referenced. Perhaps a link to an article on bagels would be appropriate in this situation. It’s probably a good thing that there are Bagels entries on Wikipedia.
Generally speaking, Wikipedia is a good authoritative source for your blog post. As a result, I’m just going to link it. Pick one of those and use it as a connecting point. Consequently, I’ve included a link to the Wikipedia page about Bagels. For those who couldn’t locate any internal links, this provides us a tick.
Look through your content to see if you can identify a connection between it and another page or post on your site. Our services page can be linked to if we’re talking about training the dog. As a result, the subject matter here is training. Our services page should be linked to this. We’re done now.
A relevant internal link to this content may be found there. So this is a direct connection to the source. At long last, we’ve arrived at readability for title text. As a result, it states that your SEO title does not contain a password or a number. So, let’s take care of it.
Now you’re wondering, “What exactly are Power words?” There’s a link to an article on “Power words” there. A list of “Power Words” may be found right here. I see them now. They’re all a fascinating assortment of terms.
Click-through rates are increased by using terms like “absurdly adaptive,” “adorable,” “agony,” and “powerful.” For our Power, we may use the word “awesome.” Our title should now include that. In addition, we’d want to include a numerical value. People frequently say or do something along the lines of “Six fantastic reasons.”
As a result, we’ve added “Power” to our title. So our headline readability should be OK as a result. And now we’re at 90 out of 100. The task at hand has now been completed. I’ll keep an eye out for it in case I need it in the future.
We have no other options except to make it longer in order to bring it to 100. We might include extra photos and videos if the text is more than 2500 words. A lot of photographs and videos will increase that to a maximum of 100. However, if you’re OK with the green point, I believe you’re fine to go. Once this is published, we’ll be done.
Another thing to keep in mind is that this is clearly an essay for a blog. Using our schema options here, we have an article here, but we can also use other schema types. Instead of writing an article, we may write about a restaurant, a dish, a product, or any other type of thing, and provide information about that particular product. A product review would begin by going through the list of things to include: skew, brand name (if applicable), price (in currency), and stock availability (if applicable). When a product is on sale, give it a rating on Amazon or Google to help it rise in the rankings.
There is a strong chance that someone looking for a product may find the item they are looking for. In this way, you may also include a schema in your text. In addition, the Pro edition allows us to create several schemes, which is a nice feature. That’s fantastic. Write about it as if it were a product or an article if you want.
It’s possible that extra services may be available in relation to the article itself. So you can put a lot of different stuff in there and still receive traffic from Google. That being said, I think that for the most part, the article would do a fantastic job of ranking your blog entries for content or affiliate marketing purposes, which is a very frequent reason for blogging. As for blog entries and articles, you can very much keep anything as is. As long as it isn’t a blog post or a news piece, you don’t really need to modify the title of the post.
This can be left at its default setting. In most cases, the content of a blog post is mostly irrelevant. That should be “reasons,” not “reasons.” So that’s the foundation for developing SEO-friendly content. I was using the Gutenberg editor at the time, but it’s pretty similar to that.
Regardless of whether you’re using Elementor or Divi, the same technique is available. A similar procedure can be followed by you as well. Now, I’d want to note that we used the free version for all of our work today. If you’re operating a company on a WordPress site using WooCommerce, you’ll definitely want to upgrade to the Pro edition of this course since it contains one really useful feature. You may use WooCommerce goods, schema, and SEO variables if you upgrade to the Pro version of the plugin.
As a result, you can now use WooCommerce to rank your items in Google Shopping. In this case, if you can acquire a high ranking in these listings, the rank math Pro version will pay for itself quickly. Make sure your WooCommerce store has a lot of traffic and you want to attract more people looking at your items by using the WooCommerce Google Shopping tab. If you can afford it, go for the Pro version. A WordPress website builder who works on several client projects should have this one in their toolkit.
Go for it if you’re simply printing for yourself. However, I was able to access the website provided in the description. Using the link in my description would assist the channel a lot, but you don’t have to. The choice is yours, but I just wanted to highlight it because that’s a great option if you’re looking for more WooCommerce website conversions. If you want to have a quick website, you’ll need to go with VPS hosting, which is extremely fast for WordPress websites.
I’ve included links to some of my favorite WordPress hosting providers in this post. Cloudways and Vulture VPs are probably solid options. There are free trials available for both videos if you’re a bit more tech-savvy. It is possible to achieve good WooCommerce and WordPress performance for an affordable price if you follow these instructions. Please have a look, and thanks for viewing.
