I love Geeklog protection from Spam, all the plugins are in stalled and easy fast to use. However, the search engines, when it come to content I want a lot of traffic. I hear the buzz about WordPress and the great traffic blogs from WordPress. I do have a WordPress blog. However, I’m not all impressed in putting all the plugins. It should be built ready to go like Geeklog. Geeklog Vrs. WordPress for the search engines! Now I must have faith that Geeklog will out shine all the other blogs in the Search Engine. What can done? What will be done? May The Force Be With Geeklog!

Here is an excellent article from Google's Webmaster blog

http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2008/01/feeling-lucky-at-pubcon.html

In the article take note about the keywords in the url. When creating a new story, staticpage, etc always make an id made up of keywords. You have 40 characters here to use.

Dirk's article has some excellent points as well but, I disagree with it says about meta tags (it use to be true). I have found that google is relying on them more again since they have developed some better algos to combat meta tag keyword spam.

I can only tell you from my personal experiences, since I used both. If you want a lot of traffic you really have to write good quality content, regardless if you're using Wordpress or Geeklog. If that fails all else will probably fail as well.

You might call me biased but Geeklog can beat Wordpress hands down. If you follow the guidelines Dirk gave re the url rewrite options and title you can really build a "google friendly" as well as a "user friendly"site. Depending on your level of expertise you might have to invest a bit more time to get to know Geeklog well but once you do you're spoilt for life Big Grin

It really depends on the features you define to be necessary. It you need good two way communication with your community in the form or "notification on a reply to somebody`s comment" then this feature is only available with a WP plugin. And this can be essential.
