Transition Words List | Improve readability (and SEO)

In one way or another, transition words have an impact on ranking… But they can be hard to find, especially if English is not your native language. Therefore I took some time to create a handy transition words list to help you with SEO.

 

 Transition words and ranking 

First, what’s the connection between transition words and ranking?

I’ll immediately clarify that using more transition words in your copy won’t directly make you reach a higher position in the SERP.

Still, these words improve the readability and structure of your text. And therefore they contribute to SEO in the long run, by attracting more traffic and visitors to your website.

Undoubtedly, using transition words makes your articles clearer and more logical. Also it contributes to make the meaning more intuitive and the text more engaging.

Especially if you use WordPress and generally optimize your articles with Yoast, you absolutely need a transition words list.

So here it is!
