The GL site in reference has a Google PR3 and the WP site is new with hardly any backlinks and just received a PR2
That is not correct: your pagerank depends of the amount of your backlinks, and the pagerank of your backlinks! This is fully independend of the CMS you are using. You can get a PR9 with a fully bloated site if you can get enough good backlinks. Please learn more about SEO before posting such replies.
I have several Geeklog sites where articles are indexed in 15 minutes sometimes!
Just stick to the basics: use not too many topics, write decent stories with relevant, not too long titles with H1 tags (use not more than 2 or 3 keywords in your title), use 2-3 keywords in the story ID's, use just enough keywords in your stories, also use some relevant subtitles with H2 tags, use nofollow tags for external links if you have to, do not put too much rubbish on your site and only write about the subject your site is about. And: get a lot of relevant backlinks!
The only thing I don't like about Geeklog is the lack of good themes, none of them is really basic and SEO'd. So just follow my advise, find
or make a nice SEO'd (WP) theme and port it to GL and you're site will do just fine!
If you want to get indexed on Google News, your story ID has to contain a 5-digit number as well. You can use the date for it: story-about-geeklog-seo-20080702.
