WordPress SEO is by far the most results-driven SEO option of any open source Content Management System.
When it comes to SEO, most people feel like they are in a mine field. A mine field of “white hat” VS “black hat”, “budgets”, “trust” and of course, “$99 a month deals from India”…
In truth, all the major open source content management systems (CMS), such as Magento, Shopify, Drupal and Joomla have their place in SEO; However, WordPress is the platform you should choose to run your website if you truly want to rank well on Google.
For small to medium sized business, small eCommerce platforms and small websites, WordPress is by far the superior CMS for successful search.
And there are lots of reasons why:
- One click SEO across the CMS
- Yoast, a powerful SEO extension
- Open source customisation
- Basic SEO straight out of the box
- Easy edit Title, Description and Header META Tags
- Readability and content scoring guides
- Complete mobile optimisation
- Versatile themes and plugins
Tempted by low rates coming from India
Well don’t be!
These $99 a month deals you probably get spammed to your inbox everyday are dangerous. Essentially, what these companies in India do, is spam your website with thousands of links using software.
Your ranking quickly improves and you think, “wow”, that’s great and pay the money. What you do not know is Google is watching. Several months after your improved rankings started, suddenly your listed in depths of Google search engine results pages (SERP) or even sand boxed.
And once that happens, you can kiss goodbye to any form of successful search. You have lost your money and any chance of ranking high on Google.
