    I just began a new blog on wordpress.com called thesportscalendar.wordpresscom
    I would like to install the all in one SEO plugin directly form my wordpress.com account but can only find it to download from wordress.org account.
    There is an easy one click install that I am missing for these kind of plugins, right? I have searched on the wordpress site and cannot find it. Help!
    I do not want to download to my computer and then upload to wordpress blog. What am I missing?

    The blog I need help with is thesportscalendar.wordpress.com.

    There are no plugins on wordpress.com blogs. There is not FTP access to wordpress.com blogs. Here’s the link to wordpress.COM support documentation
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/
    Here’s the entry on plugins http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    With your free blog here at wordpress.com you don’t have the option to upload your own themes and plugins. That is only from the downloadable version from wordpress.org for which you can put on a host you are paying for. Please review the following and post if you have any more questions.

    Thank you. So if I want to customize it, I need to go through a paid provider which will allow me to customize it? So for a free wordpress.com blog, it is limited to effectiveness on SEO, correct?

    The setup is great for SEO by default in my opinion, but in terms of “personalizing” or “customizing” the SEO experience, you really can’t change much like the SEO plugin you referenced earlier.

    sorry for so many questions. What you are saying then is that this free version I signed up for will still work fine with SEO, once Google finds the site and start to crawl it?

    Thanks again…..

    Absolutely not.

    No automatic plugin can replace the SEO you make yourself
    by
    posting quality content,
    using an appropriate title,
    proper tags and categories,
    related internal and external links,
    to mention but a few of the things an SEO plogin cannot do.

    No plugin can select appropriate and relevant keywords and place them in titles of posts, on sub-titles within posts, in the natural flow of the text, and choose place them at the beginning of documents.

    No plugin can select and place appropriate and relevant ALT text and description text on images.

    No plugin can select appropriate and relevant anchor text for either external or internal links.

    No plugin can locate and fix broken links, 404 errors, and other crawl errors that prevent the site from being indexed bu search engine spiders.

    No plugin in the hands of any blogger who lacks SEO knowledge and skills can structure a reader and search engine friendly blog.

    Thanks again to all.
    Good to learn in this setting. I use DreamHost for my http://www.sporotsinfo101.com blog and there I can download plugins easily but I am paying for that. Agreed that good SEO has its basics in what can be done for free, was just looking to enhance the experience so people could find the sportscalendarpro.com site without a lot of advertising.

    Will continue to use same principals with this new site.
    Have a good weekend all.

    IMHO there is no such thing as passive blog promotion. Good SEO and frequently posting fresh content only brings your blog up to the starting gate. It’s my experience that without taking direct action to promote your posts and blog within the “sports” niche, withing blog directories, online groups, forums, social media sites and social networks, your organic traffic will grow very slowly.

    Believe me, the SEO of a typical WordPress.com blog is BETTER than that of any external blog platform including WordPress.ORG unless you have hired a LITERALLY world-class SEO consultant, and those do not come cheap.

    I teach this stuff and have started something of a firestorm among professional SEO artistes with this statement, along with the statement that anyone can try this out for themselves by registering an independent blog and one on WP.com both tied to the same account and use the same stats counter to compare
