Micro CMS SEO feature
Built in SEO features
Having used a few established CMS like Joomla and Wordpress, I have felt they were lacking some basic SEO features like default implementation of meta tag. You have to tweak the code or add some plugin to make the meta tag customizable. While this is not the main reason I started this project, I thought I could write a CMS that natively have those features.
Meta tag are not important for SEO any more
If you think that the meta description has no weight for ranking your page, then you are right. So why bother with meta tag? Well crafted meta description has an impact on click through rate (CTR). The searchers do read the snippet before clicking (at least that's what I do). It is important to have the keywords in the meta description because they are bolded in the search results.
URL rewriting is native
that means you don't have to go to the admin panel and configure the url rewriting because it is already rewritten. It is a very basic url rewriting that is implemented in the .htaccess file. Basically you have two parameters, the category of the post and the url friendly form of the name of the post.
Tag feature to help Crawler spider through your pages
The tags are useful to complement the categories, imagine you have a post that fits in a category, but have no room to add to another, or is also in a category that you would not like to add, how can you have the readers reach it? simply add a tag that acts like a transverse category, thus you won't bother with complicated your directory structure. The other benefit of tag is naturally enhancing your internal linking structure. One thing to watch : craft the tags wisely and avoid duplicate content.
