Question: What if we are grassroots and don’t have a designer or webmaster. is this easy to do …the H1 and H2…in WordPress back end or in typepad for blogs?
Question: Is there a WP Plug-In or Where or what file do you edit to edit your Tags in a Blog? They don’t seem as assesible as on a HTML Webpage. Could you do this with a HTML Sitemap on a Blog?
Question: Any suggestions for those of us who built our websites with NetObjects Fusion or any other program that lets you build a website with out knowing html?
Answer: I get this question a lot, and I wish I knew all the different CMS programs out there thoroughly, especially WordPress for SEO! There are some plug-ins for WordPress for SEO. So Google ‘WordPress SEO plug-ins’ The most popular is at http://WordPress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-SEO-pack/.
But I will be honest. It isn’t very good. Google doesn’t care how you produce your website. It just looks at the final, HTML output. And to be effective that output has to follow the SEO best practices such as TITLE, H1, IMG ALT’s, A HREF’s etc. The plug in’s help, but you still have to get access to the HTML source to be perfect.
So you have a trade off with these programs: Ease-of-use vs. SEO perfection. There isn’t a perfect solution, just try to look at the ‘output’ and work backwards to how to get that output through the program. I wish I could be of more assistance on this one.
