The Table of Contents shortcode available in X offers up some incredible SEO benefits to your standard posts and pages. It’s easy enough to paginate individual posts or pages in WordPress using the
<!--nextpage--> code in the editor, but it doesn’t provide any real engaging way for your visitors to know what they’re in for as they click through to the next post. That’s where the Table of Contents shortcode comes in.
Simply add this to each of your “pages” after your
<!--nextpage--> breaks and input the titles of each section in your article. What you’re left with is a thoroughly engaging, easy to navigate post structure that has been proven to increase visitor retention and keep their attention (all things Google loves).
You can easily add the Table of Contents shortcode to the left or right of your post content, or have it go full width, which is great for placing at the bottom of your posts to remind visitors of what sections are left. Click through on the table of contents shortcode above to go through to the next page and see the shortcode in action!
