    Your website must be SEO friendly, it doesn't matter on which platform. so WordPress is also good for SEO but can't say the easy, effort will be same on every website building platform

    For startups WordPress is a really good option for SEO because at that time you don't have such amount of money to invest.Through WordPress
    you can use multiple free SEO plugins that will help you initially. After sometime when you feel now you are in a better financially condition so you can hire SEO experts that will boost your traffic.

    It the content you create that google ranks not the repository of that content. Out of the box, wordpress is no beeter or worse than any other CMS but to properly optimise a site you need to be able to edit the page titles and meta description - for that you need a plugin or the right theme.

    People go wrong because they choose a bloated theme or load up with plugins which affect your speed score or mobile experience. This can mess up all your SEO efforts.

    Wordpress is not 'good for SEO', it how you use Wordpress that matters.

    Just to mention your other post, site speed isn't generally a good ranking factor, the sites above me on my prime keywords are almost 10x slower than some of my companies websites.

    I believe it to be backlinks on your keywords.

    It is a ranking factor - it's just that they may have better optimized site, longevity, good link profile and so on.
    Depends the keywords, how competitive and other factors.

    Meta tags and descriptions aren’t ranking signals.

    And site structure isn’t that important.

    It may well be their link profile but don’t discount the power of longevity and content.

    Do a better job at your onsite seo and beat them to the top

    WordPress can be easy for SEO because it automatically has a good reputation with Google and other search engines, so that gives it some extra search engine love straight out the gate. However, don't just stop there. It is very important that you choose solid and reliable web hosting for your WordPress site - else it can really kill your site. Also, it's ok to use some plugins like Yoast or All-in-One to further optimize yout site.

    In addition, you should use relevant keywords in your heading and sub-headings as well as early on in the first paragraph of each of your posts as well as in the last paragraph - also sprinkle a few keywords throughout your article. Doing this thing will optimize your content and make your posts rank better.

    WordPress and SEO are slightly different things. SEO is aimed at optimizing the search engine, and WordPress is for optimizing texts on your website, page or blog.

    Wordpress is fairly easy-to-use software to create and manage a website. It also has several plugins which make it fairly easy to do basic SEO. The plugins help make it easier to perform some of the technical and style driven aspects of SEO (make sure titles of the proper length, have certain meta-tags (assisting search engines), images have alternate descriptions, content is easy to read from an algorithmic perspective (software analysis of readability], there is a sitemap, page forwarding etc.).

    However, it is important to focus on core principals when creating the website. Make valuable, concise, well organized, and interesting content. Then help to get other websites to link to your website because of its value to others. Many of the most popular search engines, including Google and Bing, heavily weigh links from other sites when ordering search results.

    Here is a list of Wordpress SEO plugins that many find useful:
    - Yoast SEO (free and subscription/paid/premium features also available)
    - All in One SEO (free and subscription/paid/premium features also available)
    - SEOPress (free and subscription/paid/premium features also available)
