  • Tyler Groskreutz: The CMS is going to be largely irrelevant. All of them can be seo friendly, but it is going to come down to personal preference in using the backend. If you choose WordPress, I don't recommend suddenly jumping to Joomla or Drupal.

    WordPress is going to have the largest community that can offer help in times if confusion and frustration. 
  • Nebojsa Djukic: Hi Joanna. Yes, Wordpress is by far the most popular platform. Give it a try, it should work for you.

    There are many free plugins that will help to have optimized website.

    Travel niche is very competitive but in the same time very interesting one. ;

    Link building potentials with a travel website are unlimited.
  • Brett Saltalamacchia: Hi Joanna, I can help you in terms of the SEO things which need doing. Take a look at my profile & website and get back to me.
  • Craig Griffiths: Wordpress is simple and has a bucket load of themes. There is also a plugin called Yoast that will help with the SEO. Remember pages rank, not an entire site so you need to produce content. Google want relevant content. They are constantly changing their algorithm to filter out tricks. Good regular content is king.
