Have latest plugin – am new to SEO but have been learning.  I am completely lost.  Site doesn’t show up on ANY search.  I am sure I have options, etc. wrong.   Google Analytics says I am missing a robot.txt file.  Would you please take a look and start me back in the right direction!

Thanks so much.

Hi Kris,

You do have a robots.txt file, it is being generated by WordPress and looks fine.  You can find it here http://versaillescondo.com/robots.txt.

Your sitemap is showing that you have Enable Sitemap Indexes checked in the All in One SEO Pack Pro settings.  You only need to use sitemap indexes if your sitemap has 50,000 URLs or is larger than 10MB, so you should uncheck that box.

Google is listing all of your pages fine, you just aren’t ranking high because your site does not have much content.  In order to get a better ranking you’ll need to add some more content.

Thanks,

Nina

Thanks Nina – appreciate your help.  

Will concentrate on content but need some advice.   It was my intention to keep this site small, simple, and just to the point.  From the little that I know, I understand that “content is king”, that post content may be more important than page content for SEO, and that links in to the site are important.

I know that posts should contain language which includes keywords and key phrases. 

It seems that I am going to have to add a blog type section to this site – can write about things relevant to the area, etc., which will include all the key phrases I have chosen.  

Now the million dollar question …..  and I know that there is no definite answer to this ….  how much content is enough?  I added descriptions and alt tags to each and every photo and had hoped that would count, but apparently it is not enough.  Is there a rule or a guideline to follow?  

I truly appreciate your patience and time – I am trying very hard to learn and understand as this is a very critical subject to me.

Thanks,

 

Kris

Hi Kris,

There really is no exact amount of content that I can tell you will work.  Adding good content and using All in One to optimize it is the best way for you to start getting a better ranking, as you’re adding content try experimenting with the settings in All in One to see if you get different results.  It’s different for every site, so there really is no set of guidelines that will guarantee you great rankings.

I’ve emailed you our SEO eBook, it includes some information on All in One and some tips on how to get better rankings, it’s a quick read and has some useful techniques that will hopefully help you out.

Thanks,

Nina

Thank you.  Will read book and start adding content.  Will concentrate the next few days on learning more about SEO and your plugin.  

 

Again, thank you.  Appreciate all your input.

 

Kris
