We can honestly say WordPress is a very powerful blogging platform. Unfortunately, WordPress out-of-box is not strongly covered in the matter of search engine optimization. Minor tweaks can be easily done, starting with changing permalinks and modifying the robots.txt and .htaccess. But we all know these kind of changes can be very time-consuming tasks and they require a very decent if not advanced SEO & coding knowledge.
