Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a way to design and run your website so you become more popular in search engines. Search engines are the main driver of traffic to your website so anyone that doesn't take them into consideration will not do well.
WordPress SEO options
Underneath the post title, look at permalinks. Look at the poor settings for Permalinks by default. Also use tags.
Learn where to make post tags without attached posts.
If you are going to use images. Use text as well. Whether it be Alt text or image captions. Also name the picture for what it is. If it is a picture of a whale, name it whale.jpg.
Go to a page and notice the permalinks there. There are no tags!
Show off the tag cloud. Not required, but not exactly rotten either. I like to add a random post generator.
enable and use Akismet
Adjust the site title and the tag line. Also check your email address. It will email you whenver someone posts a comment.
use the pingomatic
Do you want your latest post or a static page?
Allow comments. Never underestimate the power of others generating content for you for free. It'll also give you instant feedback on how to improve your website or maybe take it in a better direction.
make your site visible
Change your tag structure here. If you've made a website already, you'll need to go change your posts individually, but here you can change it to a better URL structure. There is even a link to make up different combinations.
And of course, the most important thing is to not make drastic website changes but small, constant updates. I'll make your website look alive.
WordPress is a open source content management system (CMS) and popular blogging software. It typically requires Apache, MySQL, and PHP. I can
run on other platforms as well such as IIS (Internet Information Services) and Microsoft SQL. It's a great way to create a websites for people that don't know how to create websites.
