    My CMS is finally coming to life. You can see a copy here.
    LargeFaq might not look it but there a php engine behind that was coded from scratch by myself.

    Will don't you think that ruins the credibility of that fighter site them using wordpress? It just screams, "This site is run by amateurs, dont expect any cool features becuase we cant code"

    With my cms I just wanted something that wasn't bloated and can show some article like how I set that site up. I couldn't get this done with any CMS I could find, The CMS's out there might be great and all but,

    If you want it done right, do it yourself

    Not at all. Web geeks care about stuff like that, "normal" visitors don't.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    Back when I was a "normal" visitor, I noticed that sort of stuff.

    i will always side with a static website. The blog platform is way to obvious for google to pinpoint what they are doing. If you host a static website, that in itself is considered tobe more real.

    Also, if you link properly and have tons of article you could always have more freedom in order to create a quality authority niche page.

    How do you figure that? It's easy enough to remove the dates from posts, remove the Wordpress meta tag for stats, and even use a page as the homepage instead of an archive listing. Depending on the theme you can make it almost impossible to tell it's a blog.

    five minutes of fame? I'm guessing you are used to blog with blogger.

    True. Back when I was a "normal" internet user, I could probably tell whether or not a site was using a pre-made script. After awhile you just become familiar with it and the sites all start following certain patterns, you start figuring it out. It doesn't take much to search on Google for "how to make a youtube site" and find what your looking for. They will sooner or later figure out your running some script that you can download somewhere.

    With Forums back years ago, I thought " hey this is cool" then I found more forums.. and then I found out "hey this is something you can download!"... heads over to Invisionpower board.. or Vbulletin.com site. Hmm. ( That is actually about the time I got interesting in webmastering.) Then I starting realizing a lot of sites are running these "pre-made scripts". The only people I think who wouldn't know are older people in their 40's... Who are not as tech-savvy. But younger people catch on quick.

    I've tried to make The Wonder of Christmas look a lot less like a blog than a normal WordPress site does (that is, without doing things like removing the footer text), but it still fails the test that I apply when I suspect that a site is a WordPress blog:

    Look at the source code, and look for things like ../wp-content/...

    Don't forget that the Google bot reads the source code of course!

    But sure, your average Web user won't know or care about such things.

    OK, but does anyone have proof that Google would see that and put a site into the blog category automatically? It seems to me that a Wordpress site can have pages, so why should the Google engineers discriminate against these sites. Surely the content is all that matters?

    Yeah also the "Generator: Wordpress x.x" header is dead give away.
    You can remove the meta-tag for it, but wordpress is smart, if its not there then it will send it via a HTTP header instead. So you will have to find that code in the source code files and remove it. (If possible, it might be obfuscated with too much abstraction so you'll have a hard time tracking it down).
