So last night I went to a Drupal Meetup to talk about options and plugins for WordPress for better SEO.
Gary Ricke kicked things off with an SEO overview, some best practices, and how to find areas for improvement when doing an SEO audit on a site. Mike Creuzer talked about some Joomla extensions to boost SEO. Bob Snodgrass followed that with the same for Drupal.
I gave an overview of how WordPress, frameworks and plugins can all be used to improve your site’s SEO.
It was interesting to see how each CMS has its own version of SEO add-ons like sitemap generators, custom HTML titles or 301 redirects.
I’ll fully admit that I’m a
lot bit biased to the WordPress side, but in my opinion WordPress has the basic SEO mechanics baked right into it. Given its popularity and history as a blogging platform that makes sense.
Here are my slides from the presentation. This talk was one of five and was a part of the overall presentation so it’s purpose is more of a reference guide to SEO for WordPress.
