I wanted to share this post with readers who are interested in increasing their ranking keywords with very little effort. I was able to nearly double my ranking keywords in as a little as two weeks by doing a few optimization tweaks.
How it all started It all started with some FB messaging to my niece and nephew over in Berlin. Covid19 had them pretty much shut-in for a while so they started working and optimizing their travel blog.
I was on Twitter one day and I came across an announcement that HackerNoon had joined the micropayment world and gotten an infusion of cash from Coil.com. That’s a cool $1 million to implement a new method of web monetization.

I’ve been using Hugo for my CMS and it’s been a dream. However there’s one small problem, my content is not structured in the preferred Hugo way. Right now I have a set of single folders called blog, tutorials, and reviews. Then I have a bunch of single markdown files in there like below:

On the heels of my Seo Optimization for Hugo post, I spent quite a bit of time learning how to use the built-in image processing to make responsive images in Hugo. Responsive images are pretty powerful for website performance. People use different browser sizes when viewing content so selecting the right image size to show on loading is important from an SEO and website performance standpoint.
A lot of CMS’s (like Wordpress) do this automatically when you upload an image but Hugo doesn’t do it out of the box.
I made the switch over to Hugo a short while and love the fast builds. You can read all about me ‘crushing’ on it in my What I Learned using Hugo post. There’s one main thing I want highlight in this post and it’s how to optimize Hugo for SEO. Hugo, just like any other CMS, is pretty good out of the box but you need to optimize it.

If you’ve been reading this blog for some time you’d know that I like to try different CMS’s. I made some mistakes over the years and I transferred my posts between different CMS. This ended up killing a lot of my backlinks, but that’s ok. I ended up settling on using Markdown to write my posts (love it) and a static CMS generator. Originally I used Pelican and it was pretty good.
