In episode 196 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts by Semantic Mastery, one viewer asked about the team's thoughts on claims of Google's preference for HTML sites over WordPress pages.
The exact question was:
Thank you VERY much again for your Hump Days help, it is greatly appreciated 🙂
I've read everywhere for some time that Google loves WordPress and if you want to rank on the first page more easily you must use WordPress, but lately I've been reading that Google now loves HTML sites much better and that is what we should be using. What is the truth? 🙂
