If you have been blogging in WordPress, you are probably used to adding meta title, description, keywords, and alt tags to every blog post prior to publishing. Things are a little different in Wix. Wix automatically captures your title and takes a description right from your text, so you don't need to worry about those.
Your part will be to add the meta keywords -- which in Wix are called tags -- and to optimize any photos in your blogs with alt tags, called alt text in Wix.
The keywords you include for each post will also be automatically added to your tag cloud, if you have one set up. I recommend doing so, if you haven't already, as the tag cloud can be a very useful type of search tool for your readers. You'll find the place for inserting one under Blog Elements in the Add menu of your regular Wix editing tools. You can put a tag cloud on any page, but they are normally found on either the main (top)
blog page, or on the single post page.
Keywords or tags should of course represent the terms your potential clients will be using when they are seeking help or information of the type you excel in providing. You can use variants of words like counseling, anxiety and depression, such as counselor, therapy, therapist, psychologist, psychotherapy, psychotherapist, anxious and depressed / depressing to further optimize your post.
These words should be used at least once in the post, and ideally the main keyword(s) will appear in your first and last sentences.
Alt tags are inserted in the toolbar for images. Click on the photo or artwork you have installed to your blog post to open the toolbar. See on the left end of the bar the field for typing in your alt text. Essential to include are the following:
your name with copyright symbol if you took the photo
your name or practice name
your town name
one or two primary keywords pertaining to the blog
any other description about the photo that will fit
For example the alt tag for the image in this post is: Deah Curry at DeWriteSites advises on blogging meta tags -- my name, business name, keyword blogging, plus additional description to complete the description.
Here's a tip: to get the copyright symbol, first open a Word doc and type in
( c ) without the spaces before and after the c. The three elements should automatically recombine to look like ©. Copy it from the Word doc, and bring here to paste into the alt tag field.
