Optimizing Your WordPress Blog
After enhancing overall look of your blog with a great theme, it is time to apply couple adjustments to optimize your website for search engines and make it more user friendly.
Changing default WordPress settings
Step 1 – Change Permalink Structure
When you go to “Settings > Permalinks”, you’ll notice that the default permalink is http://site.com/?p=123. This structure isn’t a good idea for SEO, but it also doesn’t tell your visitors anything about the link they’re visiting.
We’re going to change this to a custom structure using only the post title (http://YourBlog.com/title-of-article) which will provide some keywords for search engines as well as giving your readers something to go on. To change your permalink structure choose Custom Structure and paste /%postname% in the box.
