php – Custom HTML/CSS Theme into WordPress – SEO considerations
When creating a custom theme that serves all content through HTML/CSS, what is the best way to improve SEO?
I’ve created a WP theme using HTML/CSS and then adding the relevant PHP to allow WP to serve it. When I open a page to edit in WP, there is nothing there besides the page title.
I haven’t added the loop because I don’t need it and I don’t want to add any content in WP other than using shortcodes and plugins for various additions. This has the effect of meaning SEO plugins don’t recognise the site – the sitemap shows there being 0 images, for example.
Other than just putting the SEO in the code myself, is there any way to do it in a better way?
How can I get WP/plugins to recognise the content that exists in the index.php?
