Why we LOVE Squirrly SEO for WordPress

Ranking in SEO is Easier with this plugin! 

There are a lot of reasons I love Squirrly SEO.

Yoast has been the king of WordPress SEO plugins for years.  However, there is a new player in the market that makes Yoast look like weak sauce. 

Squirrly SEO is different.  You can do a lot more for a lot less money, all inside of WordPress. 

Features I Love

Rank Each Page for Multiple Keywords

Yoast wants hundreds of dollars for this feature.  Remember 3-4 keywords is best. 

Track All the Keywords Relevant to Your Business in One Place

Get Quality Backlinks for your Yoga Studio by Writing

Backlinks are super important for Local SEO.  This SEO strategy is very simple and anybody can do it.  To get your backlinks numbers up you can talk about what you already love: YOGA.

What is a high quality backlink?

A backlink from a popular website is always better.  What do I mean?

A backlink from your friend's small yoga studio is ok but a backlink from Yoga Journal is AWESOME.   Domain Authority is a ranking from 0-100 of how popular a website is.  The higher the Domain Authrity the better.  Getting a link from a high Domain Authority site to your site tells search engines that your site also has authority on the topic of yoga.  Get what I'm saying here?

So how do I get these backlinks?

You start writing!

Most yoga websites will gladly take content from you.  Your doing the job for them!

I've compiled a list of websites that you can submit too below.

Get Over Your Fear of Writing

You have time. You have knowledge.  Share it.  If you're concerned about editing my partner Marc-Cristobal Guilarte is available for editing.  He has a masters in English and is extremely authoritative when it comes to Yoga knowledge.

You will help your business tremendously by writing blog posts for other blogs and linking back to your own site.  Make sure they website is going to provide a backlink before you submit.  You'll need to provide a biography and headshot as well.

Contribute to your local media

Reach out to your local TV station, Mommy Bloggers, Newspapers, and local Magazines. They want content and the best content is FREE because you wrote it and it is helping them and you! Don't be afraid to ask.  What's the worst thing that could happen? They say no.  Move on. Fight another day.
