It has never been a greater time to be in SEO with developer skills. WordPress has dominated the last several years as the world’s publishing tool of choice. This has led to the prevalence of blogs, with Google-owned Blogger contributing to this, alongside bona-fide CMS software such as Drupal, Joomla and more that have blog widgets. The last year has ushered in a quiet revolution in Adaptive and now Responsive Web design, which is what is so encouraging to me.
There are templates, themes and mobile plugins that are going to help transform a website into something that is mobile friendly. Alternatively, few SEOs that I read are talking about how exciting frameworks are, and how they have entered the fray and given us cause to rethink such reliance on WordPress alone. Certainly, WordPress when used for blogging is the way to go, especially if you create a child of a responsive theme, then you are golden. That is what this blog is. But wait, there’s more.
Literally starting odd with a HTML5 index document, Initializr allows you to choose responsive with Twitter Bootstrap for real mobile adherence to standard and the benefits of SEO built straight in by its basic nature. Other content generation tools, such as Adobe, utilize the framework in their software for building websites. It’s smart. Basically what you get is jQuery, CSS3 with media queries for Responsive design, mobile-ready Twitter design layout by default with HTML5 SEO. Check it out.
