Search Engine Optimization
S.E.O. is on the mind of many bloggers these days. What can I do better to make it so my entries rank higher on Google, and are filled with the information that people are looking for? Usually it is just changing a few things, and voila, you have a blog that is a little better in the Search Engine Optimization department.
Well, for those of you looking for a great resource, have you tried the WordPress Codex? A very valuable resource for just about any WordPress related topic, the Codex is Wiki based, meaning anyone can contribute to the information listed, and one of the pages it contains is on S.E.O.
WordPress comes with several built in search optimization tools, including the ability to use .htaccess to create apparently static URLs called permalinks, blogrolling, and pinging. There are also a number of third party plugins and hacks which can be used for search engine optimization (SEO).
