SEO advantages of a WordPress blog

We feel that the main advantage of a wordpress blog is its popularity with Google search. Search Engine Optimization is very easy using word press. When you add a post, the writer is very similar to word. Content is key when it comes to SEO, so make sure that the phrase that you want to be picked up by Google appears in at least 4% of the content.  Google will immediately pick up your content as soon as your post is published. No need to ‘ping’ it, as you do with some websites and blogs. These are the SEO advantages of a wordpress blog.

The advantage of WordPress Site Statistics

WordPress Site Stats let you see how many people have viewed your blog each day and where they have been directed from. For example, if 10 people have been directed from Facebook, then you know that your posts are reaching people, and you can start posting more on Facebook to up the amount of views.

WordPress also shows you how many people have clicked through to other pages from your links, making it very easy to track progress with Affiliate Marketing and partner websites.
