I have a wordpress theme that i purchased and have discovered that it is not very SEO friendly. I have it on a number of existing sites and would have to keep it. Therefore I would like you to review the code and make alterations to make it more SEO friendly in terms of load time, header tags e.t.c
There are some specific problems i have found that I haven't been able to fix:
1) The theme does not allow any SEO plugins like all in one seo or platinum seo to work. When activated it causes all pages to have the same title tag as the home page. I originally thought it was because there was no call for wp_head() in the header tag. I had that inserted but it did not fix the problem. At the moment i can only control the title tag by the string given in the header which isn't good enough.
2) Google Analytics plugin - I have used this plugin but it is not inserting the code into the theme. I also tried to put a mod in the [url removed, login to view] but this failed. I need it to use a google analytics plugin.
There are some other things i have solved my self but there may be better ways of doing it:
There was no H1 showing on the home page so i inserted a hidden one behind the banner.
There was no H1 on the inner pages and posts so i changed the template code for the h2 to become h1.
So to recap:
1) You MUST BE 100% Confident you can solve the above two main problems.
2) You should be able to look at the code and make recommendations of further improvements to enhance the SEO capabilities for speed and text e.t.c
Please do not waste my time and yours if you only think you might be able to do the job. I have had my time wasted on this previously.
Please reply with the words "Im confident" as the first words of your reply or i will delete your reply without reading it and mark it as spam.
Timescales = Ideally within 3 days of order placement which will be withing 24 hours.
Capabilities: Please provide links or proof of your skill with wordpress modifications.
It is important that the modified theme can be uploaded on top of the existing theme without causing any problems as i have a lot of sites to change.
On completion I may look at some more serious modifications to make the theme much more user friendly for my new sites. You will be asked to do this too.
