This is just a backup post to my earlier recommendation to “Clean your text” to get better search results AND keep the formatting of your pages/posts.
Well the great news is that within WordPress there is a cool little button within the Visual tab named “Paste as Plain Text” It does the work for you.
Here’s a screen shot to show you the location:(click for detailed view)
So the next time you MUST copy from Microsoft Word to WordPress, simply:
- Copy the text in MS Word
- Click the “Visual” Tab
- Click your cursor inside the main text field in WordPress
- Then click the “Paste as Plain Text” button
- Your done!
Clean as a whistle and now you actually have a chance to have Google come through and index your site, finding WORDS and not formatting “cr@p.”
