Yes I have noticed some people asking this question online. My opinion is really clear about this, WordPress is NOT bad for Seo; search engine optimization.
Because it is easy to search engine optimize the content on your blog to be able to generate good search engine rankings. Many bloggers that are using WordPress are getting good or even great results from using a WordPress blog and by optimizing their blog content. I will go into further later in this blog post about why I think that some people wonder about WordPress and Seo.
But first, feel free to check out my WordPress tutorial video below that I recorded yesterday.
What is search engine optimization?
If you are not sure what seo; search engine optimization is then let me explain. Search engine optimization is the process of improving the quality and quantity of website traffic to a website or a web page from search engines. SEO targets unpaid traffic (known as “natural” or “organic” results)

It is easy for you to have your blog look exactly how you want it to look, because of the many templates that you can choose from. Some of these themes are free, and some of them yu have to pay for.
This means that a lot of people are trusting WordPress. I will go into furter down in this blog post why I think that some people worrying about WordPress And Seo.
So why the worry?
I am not really sure why some people are worried about WordPress when it comes to search engine optimisation, but here is my guess. I think that people worry about WordPress and search engine optimisation because of the updates with Googlge algorythm. These updates takes place every now and then. But I think it is better to find out what this updates means for your webistes and blogs, and then do your best to adapt to these changes. This is much better then worry to much about these updates. Because WordPress is going no where, and it is a great low cost marketing tool for you and your business.
The Seo part
In the video above I am talking about a free WordPress plug in that will help the optimisation fpr each of your blog posts. It is called Smartcrawl.You can click here to download it. Then just upload the plug in as a zip file.
This plugin you can Improve keyword optimization, XML sitemaps, optimize your meta tags, titles and descriptions and boost your PageRank on Google.
The important thing is that you optimize each and every of the blog posts that you are creating. If you do not optimize your content then all your hard work would be for nothing. Because you want people to find your content online.The subject line; have your keywords at the beginning of it and you can make it even stronger regarding Seo if you put it at the end of the subject line as well. Include your keywords in the h2, h3 tafs and also as Bold And italic. Mention your keywords several times in your post so that it gets a good keyword density. Back link to other blog posts that you have written about pretty much the same subject.
LInk to a website or blog that ranks at the top of the search results involving your chosen keyword. Avoid linking to a competitor because you do not want to build someone elses income. If you must link to a competitor then set up the link to be a no follow link. Make sure to make every blog post 1200 word long, or at least 1000 long. This will also help the blog post to ramk better.
Another thing that will help your blog post to rank is to make a video focusing on the same keywords as your blog post, and embedding that video into that blog post. The blog post will then also help the video to rank for instance at Yoitube. When your blog post is published then make sure to share it to as many social sites as possible.
