The SEO landscape of the future is a volatile place. And do you know why? The powers that be (aka Google) are doing their best to build a better, faster and secure web for all of us. Of course, they stand to benefit ten times more, but who cares? Well, you should which is why WordPress SEO best practices are so important.
