Thanks for the add. Be gentle, I’m new at SEO, quite old in years, and have a (likely) stupid question. Here goes…

One Page of my WP site is my blog. While each post has good SEO (or will when I finish fixing them), how do I get SEO for the blog Page?

Searches won’t address a blog Page, only pages and posts in general.

  1. A blog page is an index of posts. Getting SEO on that page would be kinda like getting SEO on a table of contents and one that changes all the time.

    There is likely a way to rank the page by adding static content. But I would imagine that long form static content isn’t want humans expect to find on the blog page. So not sure that’s the way to go.

    In my experience, mostly blog *posts* are what you’d want to get ranked (and pages of course) – not the index.

    Also hoping others chime in. I’m not a professional SEO and it’s not my highest area of expertise – so if anyone has alternative point of view, of course be open to it. Hope this helps.

  2. Blog is an archive page, just like taxonomy archives for categories and tags.

    Being it a general archive, its SEO potential is low.

    On the other hand, carefully crafted category and tag archives have a great potential for SEO because they are main hubs for your blog’s key topics.

    The only thing about them is that they rarely have satisfactory UX and SEO if taken out of the box, as most themes would present them.
