By the author of the best selling "Wordpress for Beginners" (ASIN: B009ZVO3H6) and "SEO 2013 & Beyond" (ASIN: B0099RKXE8) Most websites (including blogs) share certain features that can be controlled and used to help (or hinder, especially with Google Panda & Penguin on the loose) with the on-site SEO. These features include things like the page title, headlines, body text, ALT tags and so on. In this respect, most sites can be treated in a similar manner when we consider on-site SEO. However, different platforms have their own quirks, and WordPress is no exception. Out-of-the-box WordPress doesn't do itself any SEO favours, and can in fact cause you ranking problems, especially with the potentially huge amount of duplicate content it creates. Other problems include static, site-wide sidebars and footers, automatically generated meta tags, page load speeds, SEO issues with WordPress themes, poorly constructed navigation, badly designed homepages, potential spam from visitors, etc. The list goes on. This book shows you how to set up an SEO-friendly WordPress website, highlighting the problems, and working through them with step-by-step instructions on how to fix them. By the end of this book, your WordPress site should be well optimized, without being 'over-optimized' (which is itself a contributing factor in Google penalties). Who am I? This book was written by Dr. Andy Williams, a veteran WordPress user with nearly a decade of experience (and even longer experience working as an SEO).
