SEO Blog Improvement Tip #3
You should include at least one image in your blog post. A lot of time, the image is very big that is inserted into your site. One way to optimize the image and decrease the time it takes your site to load is to use a WordPress plugin that optimizes and compresses your images. I use WPSmush.

Once you have been blogging awhile, you will experience broken links. This is caused by links in your blog posts that are no longer functional as well as broken links in comments. It is bad to have broken links on your site, but you need an automated way to find these links. I use the WordPress plugin Broken Link Checker. This plugin monitors your links and will send you an email when broken links are detected.
