Hey all, I have been looking into building myself a website. I’d like to understand the SEO behind why it’s created the way it is. Does anyone have any good resources for learning how to navigate Wordpress and SEO?
As far as SEO is concerned, I think you’re making a solid choice going with WordPress as it gives you the flexibility to fine tune things like PageSpeed performance, canonicalization, and alt text. It will be a process to get it fully optimized though, like finding the most effective keywords, creating schema.org data, keeping content fresh and updated, and ensuring content is readable across a range of devices.
