The Asset Management field today is more saturated than ever. Companies are investing massive amounts into digital, and building sophisticated web presences that are aggressively competing for space on the Google search list. Anything that promises to boost a company’s profile is a winner, and that’s where SEO plugins come in.
The best plugins will integrate seamlessly with a WordPress CMS and offer easy to use services that genuinely do boost user experiences and SEO. Here are some of the best we’ve seen:
4. WP SMUSH
When it comes to your asset management site – clean lines and clear, bespoke imagery can help change a good user experience into a beautiful one.
But the best quality images will often be very large files, which, along with animations and sophisticated tools, can slow down a site and harm SEO scores.
With WP Smush you can a simply set a maximum width and height on those large images. Their servers will handle the file size and help eliminate bulky files that can easily take up all your server space. Faster page speeds mean your site will automatically rank higher – so enjoy more page views as a bonus.
3. GOOGLE XML SITEMAPS
Rated a well-deserved five stars on the WordPress catalogue, Google Sitemaps is all about the SEO. It has been supported for over nine years, and consistently rated as the best plugin on the market.
The plugin works to create special XML sitemaps, which help search engines to index your site, greatly improving SEO as a result. With sitemaps like these, crawlers are easily able to see the complete structure of your site and retrieve it. The plugin supports WordPress pages and custom URLs and it notifies all major search engines every time you create new content.
The plugin is reliable, easy to use, and most importantly it’s free.
2. ALL IN ONE SEO
