If you’re a blogger, one of the most important things we overlook is the title of our posts. Our post title is a huge factor that determines where we’ll rank on search engines. Without the proper title, our post can be buried deep under many search results and can even wind up in the sandbox.
Simple Ways to Choose a Title:
- Do research – Have others used that same title?
- Target a specific keyword and include it in your title
- Use Keyword Winner
What’s Keyword Winner?
Keyword Winner is a WordPress plugin that will make figuring out a post title easier for you. It’s generally simple to come up with post titles, but it’s harder to come up with a post title that will dominate search engine rankings. Keyword Winner is easy to use. All it takes is one click!
The installation is simple. You have to upload the plugin files and you have to change the permission settings of two files. After that, you activate the plugin and can start using it.
To start using Keyword Winner, you have to create a new post. Enter a keyword in the title box and click “Get suggestions” and it’ll get to work. You can get up to ten results with 3-4 keywords but long keyphrases only give one result.
From the list of results you’ll want to choose one that’s highlighted green, which indicates that it’s a low competition keyword (100,000 competing pages or lower!). Red means high competition (about 1,000,000+ pages) and Yellow is medium competition (between 100,000-1 million).
What I think of Keyword Winner:
I like the fact that Keyword Winner is simple to setup and use. It takes very little time to receive the keyword results and it has helped me gain more traffic to my blog through search engines. The plugin can use some improvements. I noticed how the “Get suggestions” button is only available when you create a new post. I would like to be able to use Keyword Winner when editing a post that’s already published. Also, It takes awhile for me to find low competition results. I thought the plugin automatically tries to find low competition keywords, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Instead of this (as advertised):
I don’t know what the deal is but I hope this gets fixed and release a new version of the plugin. Regardless, I still think Keyword Winner delivers overall. It takes away all the guessing and work involved to research keywords for your post title.
Currently, Keyword Winner is priced at $77 (for a single site license) and was normally $147. There’s no telling if the price is going to go up. If you has the slightest interest, I recommend you go on and buy it! You have 60 days to try it out, and if it isn’t what you intended, you can get a refund. If you do decide to keep it, I’ll give you $10 as a Thank you!
