Attract Clients to Your WordPress Website

You are a résumé writer who knows that you are not attracting clients who are searching Google.

Clients search Google for answers to their problems, not specific company names.

They search for keywords like "resume writer in West Palm Beach," "how to answer interview questions," or "IT resume writer."

Only people who already know you can find you when your SEO is set only to your company name. So, your company is hidden from potential clients.

Why Résumé Writers Are Confused by SEO

  • Website designers may feel that website operations are so familiar as to be obvious or may not see website training as part of their service. So, they leave you hanging.

  • There are hundreds of educational posts on the Yoast SEO website. They don't lead you step-by-step into what you need to know at a basic level. They get into more intermediate and advanced information quickly, addressing topics rather than the basic tasks you need to perform.

  • WordPress has changed a lot. It used to provide a list of accessible formatting tools at the top of the page, but now they are limited and some are hidden. Even the SEO plugin format has changed.

  • Professionals focus on their own skills, may not know what they don't know, and may avoid learning "technical" website skills.

Yet, Basic SEO Is Easy!

You already know how to use keywords in résumés.

You only need to know how to find website keywords, place them where Google searches for them, and use a few simple tools built into your WordPress website.

The Yoast plugin that appears automatically on every web page gives you a form for writing in your keyword information and descriptions. Then it does the rest for you behind the scenes.

“Holly teaches SEO for business owners and she makes it really easy to follow. I learned to navigate my website SEO through Yoast. And it’s much easier than using Google Adwords. It’s much more user friendly.”
—Rosalinde Rosado, Certified Career Coach, URLaunchpad

“Holly is an excellent instructor and has a lot of patience with beginners. I knew ZERO about SEO and was happy to learn the basics so I can start implementing it on my website.”
—Dianne Millsap, Certified Résumé Writer, Di4Résumé/Executive Résumé, Inc.
