Vladimir Prelovac is SEO expert and WordPress solution provider. I spent a whole day reading his blog about SEO tips and advice for WordPress. I have got to say that I am pretty much impressed. Every blogger, SEO, webmaster should read his blog. Its my recommendation. You will find huge stuff and great advice about how you can improve your current website in every aspect. I have observed another specific thing at Vladimir Prelovac’s site that whatever he posts; gets good page rank. He is not getting huge comments, Twitter, Digg and Facebook love as compared to mashable but still he has got good page ranks all over in his site even when the article is really small. Great job on original content. I have been using some of plugins by Vladimir e.g. ‘SEO Super Comments‘ which can increase your readership at considerable rate by utilizing your comments for SEO purpose resulting increase in traffic. I have noticed something with SEO Super Comments lately that it can give you trouble with the duplicated meta tags where it creates separate page for every single comment. The comment page gets the same meta information as it is for the post. I hope to get update about this great plugin on this one soon. Anyways! here is another great tool for bloggers, SEOs, webmasters and developers to improve their website overall performance in search engines. Its Firefox plugin by ‘Vladimir’ … named as SEO Doctor.
