WordPress and SEO

This post is more of a post script to my Simple Search Engine Optimization post earlier. If you’re looking to build a website that has some built in SEO capabilities and features, you really should consider WordPress as the tool to use.

Here’s why:

  1. WordPress has mod_rewrite tools built in for providing ‘permalinks’ that are related to the page title and content.
  2. Tags and tag management tools lend themselves very well to SEO.  (Add a tag cloud if it fits your design.)
  3. Plug-ins for SEO are plentiful — I recommend this Google XML Sitemap Generator.
  4. Blogs are (normally)  very full of descriptive text and links, both very strong SEO tools.
