If you are wondering why WordPress is the chosen platform for SEO, the answer is that it´s both very powerful and functional, but is also loved by the most important search engines, and, most important it’s extremely easy to use. This, altogether with its versatility, is what makes people and search engines happily embrace WordPress.
So here are the two essential pieces you need to join if you are starting a new company or want to offer a service or market any kind of products: SEO and WordPress. Once you’ve joined those two pieces together… the biggest part of the puzzle is done, the world is your market.
O.k. we’ve already talked about WordPress, but not that much about SEO, and you might not know what it’s all about. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It´s a technique used to give your blog more search engine attention. You no longer have to wait to get your webpage to be indexed to get it to appear on search engines. Using SEO you can get the attention you need by just posting your SEO content on your WordPress blog.
Even though using WordPress may make it easier to have a better position on Google search, unless you really concentrate on making the most of it, you won’t even be on the tenth page of Google results when a search is done.
It´s not terribly hard to rank on Google, though, you will only need to use SEO on your WordPress website, add high quality content and hard work to it, and you’ll get it for sure.
How do I use SEO, then? You might be asking yourself, it’s not terribly hard to do either, it might seem tricky, but if you investigate a little you will surely understand how it works and will be able to start applying it on WordPress.
There is no specific way of using SEO on WordPress, but WordPress does have several features that will help you.
Using tags, categories, meta information, plugins, duplicate content, and designing wisely is a good start. Getting a SEO expert to help you is a great option since SEO experts can set everything up for you to make your job easier, but you have to keep in mind you are the one who knows where you want to go with this project and who you aim at.
WordPress is a lot better than other platforms in comparison. It´s basically SEO friendly and you can configure it to take it a lot further in this and many aspects… it can even be turned into a CMS.
You now know why WordPress and SEO are such a great team and can start using them right away!
