WordPress Tag Cloud and other SEO tips

January 7th, 2007 Da Vinci

While doing research on SEO for WordPress, I discovered a few plugins and tips that I really liked. There are thousands of SEO tips out there and you have to identify which of them are applicable to your site and also practical to implement. Likewise there are many WordPress SEO plugins available, but many are outdated or do not work with all Web sites. For instance, I was surprised at how many SEO professionals pumped tagging and more specifically tag clouds. Tagging and tag clouds could, if implemented correctly, have huge SEO potential. The best WordPress plugin for tagging and tag pages is the Ultimate Tag Warrior. It’s perfect; except it doesn’t really work on IIS because (ideally) it uses permalinks (i.e. uses .htaccess). I would love to use this plugin on IIS so I am working a doing that.

One tip/plugin that I think is very useful is the SEO Title Tag. WordPress, by default, puts the blog’s name in front of every page title. Search engines typically display page titles in search results so you need to have an appropriate page title and normally your post title is more appropriate. This plugin makes it easy to create SEO friendly page titles. I activated the plugin today and will post an update when the updates are reflected in Google.

These two sites have good SEO suggestions and plugin recommendations for WordPress sites:
