White Paper or Case Study – Choosing Based on SEO Value

White Paper or Case Study

White papers and case studies can both be used as tools for SEO. Knowing which one to use at any given time can mean the difference between maximising SEO and realizing no results for your efforts. And the absolute worse thing for any SEO endeavor is not achieving the expected results as this costs both time and money. To that end, in this article we discuss the how, the where, and the why of using a white paper or a case study in a specific situation.

For purposes of definition, a white paper is a formal and informative piece of content that seeks to establish an organization’s position on a given matter. As such, it can have tremendous SEO value from a B2B perspective. A well-researched and professionally written white paper can establish a company’s authority among those kinds of customers most likely to purchase goods and services.

A case study is equally informative and formal, but its purpose is entirely different. Rather than establishing company authority, a case study establishes the company as a preferred solution provider to a core group of potential customers. Case studies demonstrate that the organization has already met similar challenges in the past to the degree that they are more than capable of handling those same challenges in the future.

The 12 Best WordPress Plugins You Need Right Now

Plugins are there to make our lives easier, and I, for one, make the most of them. There are thousands available to add extra functionality to your WordPress site, covering everything from extra security measures and site backups to image galleries and social media. The best thing about these app-style add-ons are how easy they are to install and you don’t need much experience to use them.

With all this in mind, it’s easy to get carried away browsing the plugin libraries. Instead of creating a bloated user experience on a slow-moving site, consider a “less is more” approach. I tend to keep a tight ship on how many plugins I use. My WordPress-based site isn’t jam-packed with them; if they don’t serve a real purpose or aren’t necessary as a stand-alone download, they’re out.

Chances are, many of your site features and elements are or will be powered by plugins. They are an asset to any successful WordPress website. Keep in mind that adding plugins isn’t like collecting Pokemon. Just because there is a plugin for pretty much every function or feature you can think of doesn’t mean you should indulge in adding them all. Using too many can eat up disk space on your site’s server, make plugin management cumbersome or slow down the performance of your site. Worst case scenario – they can open your site up to being hacked.

Limiting the type and number of plugins you use is a great first step to improving your website. In this article, I’m going to give you a list of only mandatory WordPress plugins you need to use on your WordPress site. This includes plugins that improve security, SEO, user experience and backing up your content, as well as saving time and improving conversions.

If you don’t have these 12 WordPress plugins already, you should install them now to keep your site ticking along nicely.
