13 12 2010

Are you one of the 17 million WordPress powered blogs or websites out there?  If so, have you done your part to optimize it?  If you haven’t yet, do not fret.  The following is a list of 5 fairly awesome WordPress plugins that can help simplify this process and boost your search results.

All in one SEO

This plug-in can canonicalize your site or blog, add analytics tracking code, change your permalinks to readable urls and allow you to modify your title and meta tags.  If you’re lazy they will even generate them for you!

Redirection

Redirection is a WordPress plug-in to manage 301 redirections, keep track of 404 errors, and generally tidy up any loose ends your site may have. This is particularly useful if you are migrating pages from an old website, or are changing the directory of your WordPress installation(which can be a huge hassle).

SEO friendly Images

If your images do not have ALT and TITLE already set, SEO Friendly Images will add them according to the options you set.  Additionally this makes the post W3C/xHTML valid.

Sitemap Generator

This plug-in will allow you to generate an xml sitemap for your blog or website, but also offers options through WordPress to customize it.

SEO Smart Links

This plug-in allows you the option of linking pages to certain keywords or phrases residing on your website or blog.  It also includes nofollow link options.  No more need to manually tread through your website and set-up your internal anchor text!
