    Is there any special techniques that can be used to optimize a wordpress blog on my server for SEO. One issue I see is no way to change the title tags on each page, where it seems to take the blog name for the home page.
    I have several hundred 600+ inbound links.
    I have pinged Technorati manually and used pingoat as well as pingomatic every time I add a new blog.
    There is plenty of content, about 30 articles.
    What else can I do? What else should I do to optimize my blog?

    Nikolas – give it time, and keep writing valuable content. From the little insight I can gather from your question, you can write clearly. This is the best thing you can do for your blog. WordPress is good software so let it take care of the rest. One bit of advice is to limit the number of outbound links to only the most appropriate outside sites. If you have too many, your site may appear to be a link farm.

    Remember, it takes some time for search engine crawlers to fully index your site.
