SEO for WordPress by Joost de Valk

SEO for WordPress by Joost de Valk

When I think of WordPress blogs and SEO, I generally think of a handful of experts on the subject of WordPress and SEO oriented plugins; one such person being Joost de Valk.

Joost has mindmapped his knowledge on SEO for WordPress Blogs into a wonderful guide on establishing high rankings via optimizing a WordPress Blog.

One tip that struck me a pure genius is optimizing the More command on WordPress blogs so the same “Read More” link is not used in each post.

Another neat feature of HeadSpace is that you can use it to optimize the more text, so if you use a more tag on the frontpage, you can replace the default “Read more” link with something meaningful for every post. It’s small things like that that make your WordPress SEO the best.

If you own a WordPress blog or plan on incorporating a blog into your SEO or marketing plan, be sure to bookmark Joost’s WordPress SEO Guide.
