background info: I am a small business owner wanting to get a website primarily to get our name, phone number and information available when people are looking for our product; (not to sell online) Of course everyone's goal is to come up at the top of a google search; someone suggested to me since I have no website design experience to use WordPress.com. I thought it was going well, but I am concerned and confused regarding SEO and static pages, categories and tags. Also, it seems to me that wordpress.org has many more helpful plugins, etc that would help with SEO much more than wordpress.com for a website. That being said, I am afraid the .org version will be to complicated for me and was not planning on self hosting. Here are my concerns/questions: from what I read, tags and categories are good to have for SEO, but I can't include them unless I have posting, which is for blogging. I do not intend to have a blogging portion/comments on my website, so does this mean I'll have a very difficult time getting traffic to my site? Should I be looking elsewhere to build a website since I am aware that wordpress.com is the place to be for blogging? What are the best ways to design a website using wordpress.com that helps with SEO? I appreciate any comments and suggestions to set me straight on the subject. My website (blog) is set to private since it's a work in progress, but if anyone would like to see it and add their critique, It would be extremely helpful and I would be very grateful to invite you to look at it. Thanks.
The blog I need help with is clamdaddys.wordpress.com.
