    • Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?
      I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords
      but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share.

      • The Yoast SEO plugin for WordPress is very helpful for generating a sitemap and giving the user the ability to set the title and meta description tags. But it can’t do keyword research to determine which keywords to target and it won’t optimize your website for you.

    • The church SEO videos that you’ve shared here are great, and the FAQs have answered all the questions I had in my mind. It would benefit me if you shared more useful videos like this. Cheers.
