Key Takeaways from the Episode


[6:28]: SEO (search engine optimization) is the process of creating your web content or updating things you already have so that they rank really well in search engines. This can apply to your product listings AND to your blog posts!

[8:49]: A huge challenge that TPT sellers with SEO may have is choosing the right keywords. A huge mistake TPT sellers make with SEO is using plugins on websites and assume that the green light means everything is good. There is SO much more to it!

[13:11]: A few ways to stand out and rank higher in the TpT search results would be to put keywords in the titles and descriptions that teachers would be searching for. Think in the mind of a teacher! Plus, it helps you on Google. You can actually have TpT products show up in Google searches as well!

[16:06]: Avoid keyword stuffing in titles and changing them up too frequently depending on the month or season. It's not a good long-term strategy - TpT is catching onto this! It's also not good from a buyer's perspective.

[19:25]: Utilize Rank Math for your SEO plug-in if you utilize Wordpress. There are so many added benefits! Also, be sure to avoid adding as many categories on your website or blog post.

[23:22]: Kristen has a course that will be open for enrollment soon, called SEO for Teacher-Authors! You can learn more information at !
