I know I'm not alone when I say that looking for answers about Search Engine Optimization on WordPress.com is a total pain in, well...my head!!!
Anyone who knows, with a better-than-average degree of confidence, the answers to the following questions and can assure me that they do will be my personal hero. Currently, my stats tell me that NOBODY has been directed to my blog through a search engine, so I'm feeling rather, no, VERY crappy about that.
-Can adding (relevant) tags help people find my blog in a search engine?
-Can changing the slug (url) for each post help people find my blog in a search engine?
-If I just stuck with relevant categories, would that be just as good as relevant tags, or is it better to have both?
WordPress is supposed to have built-in optimization, but I am very skeptical of that at this point....HELP! No crazy jargon please just easy-to-understand English :) Thanks and thanks again in advance for the genius answers heading my way :)
