BlogEngine.NET is an open source blogging software on the .NET platform. Kind of like WordPress but native to the Microsoft .NET. It is ‘unusual’ simply because it is the open source project, built on the .NET platform. Also the PHP based blogging packages dominate the blogging area completely, so a .NET one is a welcome addition. BlogEngine.NET is not new, it has been around for a while now, but the last time I checked it had about 5 Extensions (this is what the WordPress plugins are called there). Today there is a list of some 30 useful ones, and even more ones with some usage I did not really understand.
Anyway, I made a test blog SEO Konzultant on the BlogEngine.NET, and will be monitoring how it performs from the SEO perspective. It is interesting to see that none of the BlogEngine.NET Extensions are really addressing the SEO aspects of a blog. Is it simply because BlogEngine.NET is itself made ‘perfect’ from the SEO perspective? We will live to see….
