    Agreed. Get working on building high quality, relevant backlinks to your blogs (or outsource the task if you don't know how/don't have the time).

    Also, use an SEO plugin on WP (All In One SEO pack is the most popular).

    Get all in on SEO Pack for WP, it's free and easy to use. Also make sure you configure it and "activate" it as many people actually forget... Then just power through and send as many backlinks as you can!

    In terms of SEO wordpress one of the HUGE mistakes that I see people making all the time is failing to set their permalinks to optimize for long-tail keywords of your article names.

    Go to permalinks and change it to a custom structure and enter: /%postname%/

    What this does is rename all of your posts to the post title. This gives the GBot a better idea of what your content is and definitely helps you rank for keywords you weren't even trying to.

      Dont do this,,, please. Sooner or later your going to run out of original post names, or your going to find yourself checking to see if you have already used that post name. If you start posting duplicate titles, wordpress will start putting a -2 behind the post name.

      If anything, go with a permalink structure like this:
      /%month%/%day%/%postname%/
      /%month%/%postname%/
      /%day%/%postname%/
      /%month%-%day%/%postname%/

      Using the month or/and or day gives you a random number in your post title. Thus making duplicate titles almost impossible.

    Make sure you have the 'All In One SEO Pack' installed and configured for the keywords you want to rank for.

    Make sure the permalinks are set to '%postname%' so that your post titles appear in your domain name.

    Make sure you put your keyword in the title of each post and once per 100 words.

    Build quality incoming links from web 2.0 properties and link to individual pages not just the root domain.

    Hope that helps

    One of the things I do, although I can 't vouch that it helps ranking at all, is use a 2-column layout with the content on the left and the navigation on the right (or at least structure the underlying code so the content comes first).

    My understanding is Google spider reads from top to bottom, so it will hit my keyword focused content first, then the navigation links....

    That has the added benefits of positioning the content where the users tends to focus his or her gaze first.

    I do use All In One SEO to optimize my title, keywords and description.....

    If you know what you're doing get All In One SEO Pack.

    Otherwise get SEO Pressor (by Daniel Tan), it's a paid plugin but it's pretty awesome.

    It will score your posts and pages and give you suggestions on how to improve them.

    Go after these steps; these will absolutely help in generating traffic,
    The first precedence is to create smart and class content that provides information to visitor.
    Suggest your blog to esteem search engines.
    Post comments on relevant blogs to get traffic.
    Set up RSS Feed.
    Use trackback too see to whom you are linked.
    Make your posts in social bookmarking sites.
    At the end you should not forget SEO too and exercise relevant keywords in your blog..

    Hello!

    I have a questions...

    Can WordPress scale to handle high volume sites with lots of traffic?

    So is WordPress the ultimate CMS platform for an SEO’s website?

    Is there some performance benefit to putting a date/post-ID/number in the URL?

    Thanks

      Some of the largest websites in the world use wordpress for their blogging platform.

      Fox news - you used to be able to access the wp-admin log in screen, but they have that page password protected now.

      blogs.cnn.com - uses a VIP hosted version of wordpress at wordpress.com

      If wordpress can handle blogs on sites like CNN and foxnews, I think it can handle your site just fine.

    Add an xml sitemap... helps make sure all your pages are indexed.

    There are several plugins that will build and maintain your sitemaps for you (I use Google XML sitmap). Once you have an xml sitemap you can add it to your Google webmaster account to make sure all your pages get properly indexed.

    I see all these people saying get all in one seo Pack.

    Don't get that, get the Platinum SEO Plugin, it has everything SEO pack has and more. You can edit alot more.

    You want to make sure you do the following:

    - Buy a keyword domain
    - Put the keywords throughout your website, in the meta title & meta description (which you can do through platinum seo pack)
    - Use Unique Article Wizard & Other SEO services to bring traffic to your website
