After spending several years developing and optimizing WordPress sites, I wanted to share some of my favorite resources for getting up to speed on making sure your site is helpful to visitors AND search engines.
I have tested nearly every WordPress SEO possible plugin out there, and have ended with only a very few resources. It is the care and not the plugin that defines success for your site. Some plugins and methods will make life easier for you, but don’t be fooled by plugins that offer shortcuts. Please read through the list below and drop in the comments anything that you think should be here as well.
