We can also define several anchors with proper labels and titles to make them count for search engines, as they also contribute a lot in getting a respectable position in search ranking and attract more traffic.
Wordpress itself is a good platform. It provides you feature to optimize you blog. Few points that need to followed to drive traffic for any of the blog website includes

1) Do posts on regular basis after a fix interval of time along with fresh, relevant and precise content

2) It's good practice to categorize the blog post into categories and pages as per requirement

3) Give a proper title, Meta description and Meta tags to each post, page and to overall blog

4) Few of the blog websites includes this feature by default and some like wordpress need plug-in but they are free and are included into the dashboard option

5) Promote your blog and blog posts to the relevant social media websites

These are some of the basic points that should be followed. As per my knowledge and SEO practices I suppose these basic practices for blog points are appropriate.

Note to all: Please suggest more points related to same!

Search Engines are the major source that drives traffic to the websites. Therefore, optimizing it properly is primarily important.

I would recommend you to use the All In One SEO Plugin for your Wordpress blog. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...-one-seo-pack/

This includes great functionality that makes a website Search Engine Friendly.

LOL Love the original username...

And I doubt VERY seriously there was a question there. My guess is they simply wanted to get the necessary number of posts so that they could start dropping links.

And yes... NOTHING in the OP's post is specific to WordPress blogs. Those techniques are the most basic of on-page SEO.

If you're wanting to discuss optimizations for blogs specifically, there are lots of things that can be done... some that are general techiniques for all blogs... some specific to WordPress SEO.
