How to use categories properly in WordPress for SEO and usability?
Using WordPress categories
Categories are basically the table of contents for a user’s blog. Which one needs to adhere to in every single piece of writing to increase its credentials in search engine optimization. The WordPress categories also a helpful way to group posts together and to quickly tell readers what a post is about. These categories also make it easier for people to find your content. It becomes important for the blogger to make efficient use of these categories for a better SEO and usability.
Therefore, in this blog we will learn how to correctly use these categories;
Categorizing helps in enhancing a user-friendly environment in the post/blog/site. Which happens by limiting the area on unwanted information.For example, if a user comes to read about ‘running as an exercise’, and a blog focused on ‘exercise’ is on display, categorizing ‘running’ increases the usability of the blog.The same goes for any other website.
2.Planned out content
A variety of content is available on the internet just a button click away. But what sways a reader’s views into a blog is how easily and clearly an idea has been conveyed into the readers’ minds. And how specific needs of the user have been selectively filed for reading. This is where categorizing comes into use. Categories carefully plan out what content should be available to the user, and how useful it is, chronologically speaking, for usage.Categorizing is truly the ‘Monica’ in today’s blog-centric world.
A post should typically be in no more than one or two categories.SEO’s demand that this happens so as to reduce content being marked out to be less usable. As being ticked in many categories would mean it is a blog containing ‘little’ of a lot of things. But as a whole, its information is not credible for a particular topic the reader has in mind.A blog doesn’t want to be branded a “jack of all trades” now, does it?
One must strike a good balance between offering as few options as possible. Whilst giving the reader a choice that they will be satisfied with.This lessens the hassle faced by bloggers in providing what they want to ‘feed’ to their viewers and also reduces the stress readers have to go through while getting topic-specific content.
