The title tag can be a powerful weapon in your battle to improve Search Engine Optimization (SEO). For one, all your article titles should be unique or have pagination added to them if there are multiple pages, something that most WordPress themes do by default, but you can do more! Having a descriptive title with relevant keywords can help you a great deal in specifying the search assignments you turn up in. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to add the related keywords that are already there – your category and custom taxonomy titles.
Custom fields are a very powerful feature within WordPress. Creating custom fields for certain content or as an extra hook can make life a lot easier for your clients and yourself. There are dozens of tutorials and ready-made solutions to create custom fields or even hook them to post-types and taxonomies on the fly. I’m more of a DIY guy though, and decided to scorch the web for a more ‘custom’ solution.
There’s no ‘best’ open-source Content Management system. If we look at the most popular CMS systems; Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, they’ve all got their pros and cons. However, web developers tend to turn into advocates of the CMS they have learned to work with, instead of looking over the fence every once in a while. I say this because I’m just as guilty of this as any other developer.
