The Caspio WordPress Plugin makes it easy to deploy Caspio forms, reports, charts, graphs, and applications to your WordPress blog or WordPress CMS site. One of the reasons WordPress has become so popular for blogging and website management is the mass availability of various plugins to enhance WordPress capabilities. And like most WordPress plugins, Caspio's plugin is free.
You still create your applications the same way you always do using Caspio's intuitive app-building wizards. With this plugin, you can choose to deploy your apps using Caspio's standard Embedded Deployment or our SEO Deployment feature to enable search engines to index your database content and attribute it to your WordPress site.
The plugin supports a WordPress "shortcode" that you add when editing your WordPress blog post or webpage. Read the HowTo article for all the details and step-by-step instructions. The basic idea is that you paste the web address of your Caspio app into the shortcode within WordPress, in a format like this:

SEO Deployment in WordPress
[caspio seo="http://b4.caspio.com/dp.asp?AppKey=Your App Key Here"]
