working_your_permalinks

Hi people!

Today is going to be about permalinks in WordPress. When you start a Google Blogger blog, you are sure that Google know your blog and will try to make it search friendly. When you start a WordPress blog, then it’s your own job to do these things. One thing you can do is to look at your permalinks. When people search for something on Google like “About Tanja Mortensen” then Google crawl links and try to find something that looks similar to the search. This is where permalinks are important! How should Google know what tanjamortensen.com/?p=123 is? If it’s called tanjamortensen.com/about, then Google will know this site has something to do with about Tanja Mortensen. This doesn’t solve all SEO problems, but will make a start.

How to change your permalinks

Go to your settings, permalinks and then choose a way to show your post-URL or decided for yourself like I did, I made mine tanjamortensen.com/category/post-title. On every post or pages you also have an option to edit the permalinks and decided for yourself what it should be.
