WordPress is pretty well setup for SEO right out of the box. That being said, there are a few things you can do to make it more friendly to the search engines. I found this quick tip that makes SEO for your wordpress blog even better.

The instructions below will enable your wordpress blog title and meta description to become relevant to the on-page content. Instead of having the same title for each page of your blog, the title for each page will use the title of the post. And, the description will be a handful of words taken from the content of your post.

My favorite SEO blog is, of course, the one you are reading. That being said, this blog, by itself, is not a comprehensive resource for learning about the world of SEO and online marketing.

Listed below are a handful of blogs and forums that are a great resource for SEO and online marketing.

Digital Point Forums
SEO Chat
Webmaster World
HighRankings
Search Guild
SEO Company Forums
SEO Book.com
ABAKUS SEM/SEO Blog

Scott Fish
SEO Scoop
Oilman
Stuntdubl SEM
Matt Cutts Blog
RealSEO.com
fantomNews
SEOmoz.org
Link Building Blog
Jim Boykin Blog
Dan Thies Blog

Although i havent linked to each of these forums and blogs, a quick search in Google should land you in the right place. I hope these sites help you to learn as much as they have helped me.

While the title of this post may seem strange to those of you that know what SEO stand for, it has come to my attentiont that this keyphrase is searched for very frequently on the web. Which of course means that good rankings for this term may provide some good traffic. Since this phrase is a little strange and redundant to people who know what SEO stands for, there isnt much competition for this keyword either. So, I thought I might try to capture some of this traffic with this post i my blog.

To make your adwords campaign more effective, there are two tips that may help you.

Capitalize on low price keywords
If you target thousands of low price keywords instead of only a few high price keywords – you can usually get the same/more traffic at a lower cost. Let me give you an example:

You manage a website that sells new cars. You begin your adwords PPC campaign searching for keywords to bid on. The common keyword “new car” may be searched for, say, 1000 times a day. Which seems like a good keyword to generate traffic to your site. However, “new car” has a PPC bid price of $4.50 a click. Lets say 100 people click on your ad which costs you $45/day. For 100 visitors. Now lets consider another option…

Looks like google is updating PR again. Most of my sites are experiencing an increase in PR across most google datacenters. This site, which is only a few months old, has jumped from a PR0 to a PR5. Not bad for a new website. Rankings in google have not a had a similar jump but that just goes to show you that PR doesnt have as much to do with rankings as people would like to beleive.
