Out of the box, WordPress gives you a semantic, standards-compliant web site. The search engines love this because it makes their job easier. When search engines send their spiders and crawlers out into the Internet, they often encounter barriers to navigating a site: JavaScript links, Flash content, and so on. WordPress blogs don't have these barriers to navigation.

Furthermore, when the search engines analyze the content of the pages they have gathered to identify the keywords and the keyword density, and determine the ranking of your pages for those keywords, WordPress makes it easy for them. WordPress uses the name of your blog in <title> and <h1> tags on each page. For category pages, the <title> also contains the category name, and for individual post pages, the post title is also in there. This common sense approach to structuring a web site achieves search engine optimization by publishing unique page <title> tags, and by giving meaning and importance to keywords.
