WordPress allows one to implement Search Engine Friendly URLs and edit the URLs on the page while adding ones content. This means that one can easily get those important keywords into the page URL which is a very important factor.

Alt Image Tags

Because search engine robots cant see images, it is very important to add alt image tags to images so that search engines can make sense of and index images properly. WordPress allows one to easily manage alt image tags in the media library.

Internal Links

WordPress makes it easy to add internal links between the different pages of one’s website. The hyperlink function in the editor’s panel allows users to search and link to other pages within the website very easily which boosts the internal link structure and helps the link juice to follow deeper into the sub pages.
