And click “Save” button

STEP 2. Lets generate first 18 000 posts and 22 000 posts

Finally you can do some interesting things. Lets generate a small national site with 18 000 posts.

Go to SERP.farm Posts -> Add New page and insert in post title text with {city} tag

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-14-04-20

for example “List of plumbers that work around {city}“.

Note: To read more about tags that you can use in title checkout SERP.Farm features list post

Now click “Publish” button

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-14-21-55

 

Check the “SERP.farm summary” block in the right blocks area just over the “Publish” block

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-14-26-22

 

Hmmm why did our plugin generate for USA 18 900 cities? It must be 25 000+?
Our plugin generates pages based on unique names from the Post title or slug. So if there is the same city but in different state it will not count it.

What should we do to generate unique pages for cities located in different states?

Add the {state} tag into Post title. So the post title will look like “List of plumbers that work around {city} {state}”.

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-14-35-35

Now scroll down and add “-{state}” tag to the Slug template. If you do not add {state} to the slug template it will generate pages names without state name.
You can also use spintax in post title if you check “Generate pages based on slug”

Note: Every time when you add a new tag after the first save of post template – you should add new tags into slug template.

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-14-34-47

and click “Update” button in Publish block. Wait 1 second and….more than 30 000 pages were generated.

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-14-41-20

Would you like to see them all?

Go to /sitemapindex.xml page of your site and see the list of pages in the sitemap main page

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-14-52-36

Now you see the list of posts. Click on any post to see it.

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-00-10

 

STEP 3. Lets generate 1 000 000 posts

Now lets generate 1 000 000 of posts.

Now go to your SERP.farm template edit page, add a new keyword and in “Local” area of SERP.farm Variables block add a {skills} keyword.

Here is a detailed instruction how to do that.

Scroll down to the “SERP.farm variables” block. Click “+Add new” link at Local area.

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-14-34

Now type the tag name “skills” in “Variable name” and insert list of keywords in Variable values.

Here is a list of keywords that i’ve used:

Reading drawings
Reading specifications to determine layout of water supply
Reading specifications to determine layout of waste
Reading specifications to determine layout of venting systems
Detecting faults in plumbing appliances and systems
Correctly diagnosing fault causes in plumbing appliances and systems
Installing, repairing and maintaining domestic, commercial, and industrial plumbing fixtures and systems
Locating and marking positions for pipe connections, passage holes, and fixtures in walls and floors
Measuring, cutting, bending, and threading pipes using hand and power tools or machines
Joining pipes using soldering techniques
Joining fittings together using soldering techniques
Joining fittings together using compression fittings
Joining fittings together using threaded fittings
Joining fittings together using push-on fittings
Testing pipes for leaks using air and water pressure gauges
Awareness of legal regulations and safety issues
Ensuring safety standards and build regulations are met

Here is a screenshot with explanation:

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-23-02

I’ve used for example long names in keywords. But you can use anything you like e.g 1 word or two word keywords.

Click “Save” button when finished.

Then add {skills} to the post title.
screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-29-45

Add {skills} tag to the slug.

Note: Every time when you add a new tag after the first save of post template – you should add new tags into slug template.

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-38-03

Click “Update” button. To generate posts.

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-39-24

 

Now lets see how many pages we created. Oh no only 512 057 posts. We need more keywords!
screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-41-20

May be lets add WordPress tags? Add tag “{city} {skills}” in the tags block.

 

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-44-36 (2)

Click “Update” button to generate the posts.

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-39-24

Lets see how many pages were generated. Extra 322 000 pages. But thats not a million in total….
screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-54-16
Lets add one more SERP.farm tag – {type} and fill it with 3 keywords.
screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-57-25

Fill in Variable name with “type” and Variable values keywords with:

Individuals
Big companies
Small companies

Don’t forget to click “Save” button

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-16-00-24 (2)

Now lets update the post. Click “Update” button to generate the posts.

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-39-24

Nothing happend? 🙂 Post count is still the same? 🙂 Thats because we’ve forgot to add tag {type} into post title and slug.

Add “{type}” into post title

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-16-11-27

Add “-{type}” into Slug.

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-16-12-45

Click “Update” button to generate the posts. Wait one second…

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-15-39-24

 

Taddaaaaa! A bit more than one million of posts were generated but for the demo it’s ok 🙂

screenshot-lieragne.us-2017-03-07-16-15-54

Now go to your sitemapindex.xml file.

You’ll see only 1000 links to the pages to see the other pages add a number of page to sitemapindex file. for example to see next page with links 2 – /sitemapindex2.xml

To see all pages on one sitemap index file go to SERP.farm->Settings page and set 2500 pages per sitemap list page.
