There are so many fiddly bits going into the calculation of Google’s search ranking that it’s no surprise when business owners question another fiddly bit. “Does X influence SEO?” is one of the most common questions in marketing online.The question of whether WordPress has any inherent advantages or disadvantages is a common one as well, and it makes sense. WordPress is a site architecture, and sometimes those come with extra baggage – or extra advantages. The question is, does it this time?A Simple AnswerThe simple answer here is that no, WordPress sites do not have any inherent advantage or disadvantage over home-developed HTML/CSS websites. Google treats both kinds of sties the same, in broad strokes.If you want proof, just look at the web around you.

It’s not as simple as just picking a good image Even though open graph tags use an open standard, each platform (Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, etc) treats open graph tags slightly differently. Some even have their own proprietary ‘versions’ of open graph tagging, too. Twitter’s ‘twitter card’ markup, for example, bears a strong resemblance to, and overlaps with, open graph tagging.

While some WordPress developers would rather build plugin functionality themselves, there are thousands of high-quality plugins out there to use. For those of you who haven’t used plugins before, they simply allow you to create … [Read more...] about 3 WordPress Plugins for SEO in 2013
