Wordpress alternative - WYSIWYG online web creation software?

Discussion in 'WordPress' started by tigertom, Sep 8, 2006.

    Anyone have any SEO-friendly alternatives to Wordpress; a fine software, but I'm getting ticked-off customising it?
    SEMrush
    Something with a WYSIWYG interface, preferably that outputs static HTML pages (or a good 'fake' of same, without too much tweaking).

    An online web creation software, which doesn't fill the code with non-textual dreck.

    Tigertom, you've just described a HTML website - are you sure it's a blog that you want?

    why wud u need an alternative. If you cant figure out something as simple as wordpress... its tough to give u other alternatives.

    Cow WP is the simplest of them all. however you could try this CMS Made Simple.

    It churns statics webpages. I guess that is what you want.

    I don't was a blog per-se, just something that has its features, which doesn't add junk to the code, and outputs standard meta tags.

    I can figure out Wordpress, I just don't want to any more. CMS Made Simple does not output static HTML pages.

    CMS's are a great way of putting your thoughts quickly on the web, if you don't care about search engine positioning.

    Article Manager and Page Publisher seem likely candidates:
    http://interactivetools.com/

    I found them via HotScripts. They had positive votes/comments.

    I was just wondering if there was something more popular that the world and his mother were using.

    Thank you for your replies.

    You've posted this in the wrong part of the forum to be honest. You would of been best posting it within CMS, not blogs. Wordpress can be used as a CMS with plugins, but they are specific CMS applications which I'm not familiar with.

    Ask a mod to repost this in CMS or open up a new thread - you might get a better response.

    Try website baker. Seriously, just try it. I installed it for a small 2-3 website project I was doing and I was an instant fan. You can create a blog as a seperate /dir or have the blog be the whole site. You can even make each page be its own seperate blog.

    Templating is cake. A single index file (or you can split to header.php, footer.php , sidebar.php, etc... it's up to you).

    I highly recommend WB to any webmaster wanting to create a SEO friendly site. I've used it on SonyPSPMovie.com, TeamDonk.com, and my advertising sub site. Truly great software!!

    disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with WB in any way. I'm just an obsessive fan of their easy to use software. :D

    You'll find thats the case with most applications, be it a blog, forum etc.

    It's not difficult to get a blog SEO'd well, and whilst "on page" optimisation like title, description tag etc is important, getting one-way links is more important, and by offering unique, informational content, people will just link to you without even requesting a link back.

    I really wish people would stop propagating the "reciprocal links are bad" myth.

    Yeah, two way links work wonders too... and

    @Tiger, CMS MADE SIMPLE, gives you static HTML pages.


    Wordpress can give you static HTML pages too. But if you just dont wanna work on it and have everything just handed down.. then it wont happen...

    All you need it 4-5 plugins on wordpress... and your blog is SEO'd well... you have awesome links and stuff...

    you could check out my blog in the sig
