You could have the greatest blog in the whole world but if no one can find it what good is it. In this post I am going to go over some of the things that WordPress can to help your site be found by Google. Google and yahoo love WordPress the search algorithms work really well with WordPress. This alone gives you and edge to getting to the coveted page 1 in a search result.
Keywords still play a big part in search engine results. Don’t go crazy thinking that you have to fill your different sites and post with a ton of keywords. Google has caught on to this trick and you now get penalized for doing it. Add one or two keywords here or there but make sure that is makes sense to the real life people who are going to be reading you blog.
#tags and WordPress tags will also help you get your site found by search engines. Tags are like street signs for Googlebots or spiders to find and map your website.
The last thing is be sure that you have a sitemap for your website or blog. There are WordPress plugins that will do all the work for you and submit the sitemap to Google, Yahoo and Bing.
