WordPress vs. SEO – Getting It Right!

I know that I sound just like the rest of the internet right now, but I’m going to say this anyway: SEO is vitally important for your WordPress site’s existence. No matter if you’re a blogger, an online business owner, or the person in charge of a corporate WordPress site.

Even despite all the recent algorithm updates like the Penguin and other ridiculously sounding animal names, SEO is still your best call for attracting new visitors and building your site’s popularity.

WordPress gives us quite a lot of unique optimization features, especially if we add a couple of plugins to the mix. We can set the permalink structure, create sitemaps, tune the indexation settings, and so on.

But no matter what exact actions we take, we need to keep the big picture in mind, and make sure that we’re not doing something just for the sake of it. To find out what I’m on about feel free to check out my guest post at ProBlogger:

I have one more question. What’s your opinion on the Penguin update and the carnage it has caused in the blogosphere, and on the internet in general?
