So what are the alternatives to WP ?
Is there a wp plugin to make the site more unique ?
unique? how ? for that u need to change the design
the last few steps to make wordpress better in the eyes of search engines are great.
what I would like to know is how to edit .htaccess so that the admin area is not visible??
The essence of this post is confusing.
Yes, WordPress is widely used, and yes, Google does value uniqueness.
From what can I gather from this is just that you can use Word Press, but don't just use the standard template. Use other template, create content, get some custom widget, etc.
My main banking site is banking great for 5-6 years, dominating some SERP in my country, even against the big boys using just Word Press.
A lot of my tanking site use Word Press also, and most of them still banking.
Some of my banking site use custom HTML, some of them already tank.
It's not about WHAT engine do you use for your web, it's all about WHAT is your website.
I think your a bloody clown (how funny considering your location and handle).
Just because people dont know how to configure or properly use a tool (eg: wordpress) isnt a reason not to use or stay away from it.
I am mild mannered (usually), but your post is full of shit.
Most people would have actually paid attention if you made a post that went into detail how to secure wordpress after a default install, but no you had to rant on about staying away from wordpress altogether?
Thats kinda like saying women shouldnt drive cars because they cannot change a tire properly.
You owe me a few minutes of my life back :bsflag:
By the logic of the OP, since 100% of the blogging universe also use html and/or php, that also leads to too much of a footprint. WP removes almost all the coding obstacles keeping people from putting sites up. I'd say, keep using WP, make it as unique as you can (mix up the plugins and modifications for each), then just bank. Keep IM life simple.
Do you think that using pure HTML (self made, the "old way") is better if you wanted to have a good article based content site? Just leaving out the clogging code and use as simple HTML as possible (without sacrificing looks too much). Would be interesting to test that.
Thanks for your comments.
Many bloogers prefer blogger over wordpress but i find later more user friendly and easy to handle. Would you like to suggest any third worthwhile for newbies??
done lots of site using wordpress never got any problem, for 1 niches one of my site is in the top 3 position with computation to 7 years old gov. blogs and wiki site
In my oppinion, the Wordpress is the best OpenSource platform because it's fully customizable, u can add a lot of plugins for your website, the SEO is amazing with this platform and also you can have a nice template with seo optimization and other things good for social sharing and stuff's like that.
wow, he's been here just over a year, must be an expert, after all, he totally knows how to rank sites
seriously, as far as split testing goes, i have a personal blog network of 40+ sites just for one project, running 2 different custom themes half of each set of custom themes are running yoast, the other half are running my own custom php to generate dynamic meta descriptions and titles, all the sites have just about the same linking structure, and the interlinking structure has highpoints generated within all 4 camps of setup, know what kind of ranking difference they have?
statistically, none, now both sets have their positive and negative outliers exactly as expected according to the inbound links and interlinking structures
if the theme or plugin would have made a difference then i'd have seen some unexpected dips where there shouldn't have been, but that simply isn't the case
but i'm sure you didn't just post this based on conjecture and hearsay, after all, why would a noob want to mislead people?
They can pick up on tendencies and track you in some form or fashion... but who can't really. Wordpress is easy to use and gives them what they want even faster.... content. So now they can assess the content as worthwhile or not. You give google too much credit
good post but I dunno about the comments being skipped. Ive seen a difference in ranking by adding my own comments to a page. With all the tips you should do that security wise. As for the theme I've seen the standard theme out rank many sites.
My tags rank very well within Google index.. I am not going to de-index them
I disagree with doing that! tags rank just as well as pages and if you have unique content meta descrip and unique content post u will rank twice for the same post.
very boring, don't believe this crap, all seos use wordpress and they rank
He ment to say "Why stay away from Wordpress unless you have a Joomla site"....joomla is shite
In building a blog network it is my understanding to diversify everything. This means that some of your sites should be wordpress, joomla, drupal, html/css, and etc. The more everything is diversified the better ~_~. If you build every blog in wordpress on the same ip.... then your asking to get slapped.
if you build a blog network with any sites sharing an ip linking to eachother it will be devalued, it doesn't matter what the CMS is,
organically you can find large clusters of wordpress sites that link only to other wordpress sites with the occasional joomla or wiki target
if you build it smart the entire blog network can be wordpress without leaving a footprint, something like 20-30% of the internet runs on wordpress so it's just stupid fearmongering you are spouting there
please, if you haven't actually tested it, STFU WITH THE TRIBAL KNOWLEDGE BULLSHIT
on second though, keep it up, i will not be correcting any more falsehoods in this thread, if my competition wants to hobble themselves by believing this shit let them, it'll just be easier for me to beat the fools that believe this makebelieve fairy tale bullshit
I thought the same 2 years ago that wordpress had something to do with seo and ranking stuff which pulled my sites down, but I came to know that I was wrong.
