I'm a newb to WP and would like to ask about it's search engine visibility out of the box. I have an OsCommerece site (PHP based) and know that certain plugins have to be installed in order to get good or better visibilty for search engine spiders and bots.
So far i've only changed the URL display to /%postname%/
I understand that this causes problems for Awstats etc , in so far that it will not function, but the url looks better.
Is this the same for WP ?
What plugins should i use ? and are there any other things i should do to make it more search engine friendly in terms of spiders from google , yahoo etc ?
