This are basics of SEO. You must tweak these points rightly in order to get better position in Google search result page.
We will give you 6 basic SEO recommendations for your blog, easy to implement, especially if you use WordPress and you can make practical use of plugins.
Search engine friendly url of articles
By default Blogger creates search engine friendly urls.
But, in case WordPress, by default the WordPress generated URLs are not SEO friendly. Why? the reason behind is they are not descriptive and do not represent the content of the posts.
For example, see the following URL:
Do you understand what this page is about and what category it belongs to? No. In the same way, search engines will not understand
However, if you look at:
It is quite obvious where it belongs to or what is the post is about.
Best of all is that this change in permalink structure is very essential, it is very easy to implement in WordPress:
Go to Options > Permanlink and choose the option to Custom Structure where you will use:
/% Category%/% postname% /
Thus the structure of the URLs is the name of the category to which it belongs followed by the post title.
Optimize the title
The title tag is one of the on site SEO factors of greatest importance, not only because it is taken into account by search engines but also for their visibility on the page of search results and as in the browser.
