I just came across an interesting information on one website (search-engine-upgrade.com/wordpress-sites.asp) of a guy (who claims to have spent two decades in the industry) that says -
"WordPress Sites, Joomla, Drupal, etc. Don't generate traffic. You'll have to rely on other means than search engines (TV ads, business cards, etc.) to drive traffic to them"
IS THIS POSSIBLY TRUE?
He further says -
WordPress, Drupal, etc. pages are not publicly cacheable (i.e., in search engines) No cache - no rank!
They are not capable of meeting Google Guidelines.
Cannot optimize - no organic optimization is possible.
For a WordPress site to exist, at all, in searches, it needs a standard web page for the home page. Without the standard (static) page, you can't use a <meta> tag to verify for search submissions
Also note, in a CMS site, you have no ability to upload files, so you cannot use the alternative method of placing a Google, Yahoo or Bing verifier file in your site's root directory either.
No Google sitemaps
No way to limit Google's Geographic Target
No robots.txt files (all search engines)
Diagnosis: dead in the water!
Some other advise from him -
The best examples of WordPress sites, Joomla, etc have one fatal flaw - they don't show up in searches. There's nothing "under the hood". The car here looks nice but won't make it off the lot!
In the case of a web site, you won't immediately know you have a lemon. All sites take time to bear fruit. After patiently waiting for results - you realize you have a dog, you lost a year, and must start over - from scratch!
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THIS IS POSSIBLY A TRUE INFORMATION?
