Part of your site’s performance ranking focuses on search engine optimization. Many plugins on the market facilitate the steps needed to optimize your content. Over the years, we have tried many of them both paid and free. But, for the past four years, we have exclusively used Rank Math on our sites as well as our clients’ sites.

Installation and Setup

Let’s quickly review the steps to install and configure Rank Math. If your site is connected to Google Analytics or Search Console, it’s easier to open them in separate browser tabs to ensure you’re authenticated.

Page and Post Optimization

Page and post optimizations are the foundational aspects of Rank Math. You supply the focus keyword (the topic you are writing about) and Rank Math checks to ensure you have met the minimum requirements.

These include essential SEO elements such as:

  • Is the Focus Keyword in the title?
  • Is the Focus Keyword in the META description>
  • Is the Focus Keyword in the URL?
  • Is the Focus Keyword in the first 10% of the content?
  • How may words are in the article?
  • Is the Focus Keyword used in a sub-heading?
  • How many times is the Focus Keyword used in the article?
  • Does the article link to external resources?
  • Does the article link to internal resources?
  • Is this a unique Focus Keyword for your website?
  • Does your article contain images?
  • Is there one image with an ALT tag containing your Focus Keyword?


Once Rank Math is installed, you’ll see scores on your Posts and Pages overviews.
