How well your installation is already search engine optimised depends upon your theme. Some topics are just created for look whereas others are designed with SEO in mind. Whatever your theme I would recommend installing two WordPress SEO Plugins as a minimum:Site MapInstall A plugin to create and maintain a site map aimed at the various search engines. "Google XML Sitemaps" is a good choice which, irrespective of its title, will additionally encourage Bing and Yahoo. This plugin will allow the search engine spiders to discover all of your pages and articles and will have them indexed as quickly as possible.General SEO PluginMaybe The most popular of these general WordPress SEO plugins is "All In One SEO Pack". It is possible to simply install it with all the default settings and all you have to do is input the meta data for the Home Page (i.e. the text that will appear in the search results). The plugin also adds the ability to join the meta data manually on every post/page. Whilst the default settings are okay, at some stage it'll be worth knowing the plugin is doing (such as avoiding the indexing of duplicate content) as some adjustments of these settings could be beneficial.Another General plugin is your Platinum SEO Plugin.

A site needs good, unique content which is added to on a continuous basis. This content also has to be optimized for the search engines, meaning you have to structure your pages/posts around a key word. There's a plugin to assist with this:SEOPressorInstead of Helping set up the site for SEO purposes like most WordPress SEO plugins This one runs every time a page/post is stored and analyses it for SEO Purposes.
