SEO is changing dramatically. The techniques that work this year might not work in the next year.
But the one technique that remains constant is quality content. Yes, content is still the king.
Ultimate Blocks has some SEO blocks that will help you to improve your On-Page SEO.
Here I’ll be talking about 5 SEO blocks by Ultimate Blocks that will help you to improve your SEO rankings.
Without further ado, let’s get started.
1. Table of Contents (Show Anchor Links In Google SERPs)
Have you noticed the ‘Jump to’ link or links under the meta description in Google search results?
If you’ve been using Google for a while, you should have noticed it. Google has been showing these links for a while.
Having these links in SERPs will definitely improve your CTRs as well as rankings. To show these links in SERPs, you need to have anchor links in your posts or pages.
While you can add anchor links manually in WordPress, the best way to do it is using a ‘Table Of Contents.
Ultimate Blocks has an advanced ‘Table Of Contents’ block that lets you add a table of contents in your WordPress posts or pages in no time. Here’s how it works.
When you insert ‘Table of Contents’ block, it automatically generates the table of contents from headings. You can decide which headings (H1 – H6) to include or exclude. You can also show the table of contents in two or three columns. You can even change the name of the ToC.
However, it’s totally up to Google when to show anchor links.
2. Review (Show Star Ratings In Google SERPs)
Another great way to increase CTR is to show star ratings in Google SERPs. Sites like Amazon, and Yelp have been showing those star ratings for years and generating massive traffic.
Now the good news is, that you can show star ratings on Google by using Ultimate Blocks. It has a ‘Review’ block that lets you add a review box like this –
Ultimate Blocks Review
And the great thing is, it’s schema enabled. That means it will help you to show the star ratings in Google search results.
Once again, showing star ratings is totally up to Google. All we can do is add schema enabled review box.
3. Content Toggle (Show FAQ Schema In Google SERPs)
Google has recently introduced a new schema called “FAQ Schema”. It allows you to mark your FAQ Section to have a rich snippet in Google Search.
Here’s how it looks –
The great news is, that we have added FAQ Schema in our Content Toggle (Accordion) block.
It will allow you to show FAQ Schema in Google SERPs. And it will definitely help you to get more clicks.
4. How To (Show ‘HowTo’ Schema In Google SERPs)
Google has recently introduced the ‘HowTo’ Schema. Here’s how it looks –
Ultimate Blocks has a dedicated ‘HowTo’ block that lets you add schema to your tutorial post.
5. Social Share (Driving More Social Shares)
According to Google, Social Signal is not a direct ranking factor. But there’s plenty of evidence that Social signals can influence your SEO rankings.
Even if it’s not a direct factor, we can’t deny the importance of social shares for more credibility and traffic.
Ultimate Blocks offers two social blocks to help you to generate more social shares.
The first one is the “Click to Tweet” block. It lets you add a simple click-to-tweet box like this:
You can change the Twitter username, font size, Tweet color, and the border of the box.
Having this tweet box on your blog posts will definitely increase the number of tweets.
Another block is “Social Share”. It lets you add social sharing buttons to your blog posts.
While I believe that you should use a dedicated social sharing plugin to drive more shares, this block can still help you to add social buttons quickly.
These two blocks can help you to get more social shares as well as improve your SEO rankings.
As Ultimate Blocks is not a dedicated SEO plugin, it’s not possible to include other On-Page SEO techniques like meta title, meta description, etc.
But we will keep improving the plugin to make it more SEO-Friendly.
Now I’d like to hear from you. Do you want us to add any new functionality to the plugin?
