Is wordpress "Seo-friendly"? hard to set up?

Discussion in 'WordPress' started by tarponkeith, Jun 26, 2007.

    I'm a Microsoft server user, so not versed in the world of PHP, vBulletin, or WordPress...

    But I'm making a blog for a friend, and don't want to spend the time to learn anything new (ie: php)... So I decided to use "WordPress"...
    SEMrush
    Is it SEO-friendly? Does google like it?

    Is it hard to make the pages look nice?

    Hard to install?

    I did some research and it looks interesting and adaptable... I just want to hear from current word-press users and see how they feel about it... thanks!

    WordPress is great...easy to setup...lots of great plugins and free themes. Jim Westergren has a great guide for WordPress SEO.

    Hope that helps!

    It’s quite easy to setup and get going, though if you seriously want to exploit its full power than you need to put it on a server that has Apache, else the mod_rewrite wont work.

    There are rewrites of the mod_rewrite apache conf for other web-servers, including lighttpd - probably not relevant for OP, but hey...

    It's that easy! And if you have problems, one of the biggest pro's of using wordpress is a helpful community (also besides DP), and vast article resources and such - so you won't get stuck.

    I agree with Paul. Go download this right now. If you want me to show you why it's great just give me a PM, I don't want to post all the junk here. I love SEO all in one.
