Creating A Permalink – The Perfect Structure

www.netwiseprofits.comHey, welcome to this weeks Q&A’s, tips, updates and success stories from the members of the wealthy affiliate.

Before you check out all of this weeks great shares from the members of the wealthy affiliate. Let quickly talk about permalinks.

Last week (friday) I shared this fantastic infographic from Neil Petal  which showed how to do on page SEO using the perfect structure.

Well part of the perfect structure was making sure to create SEO friendly URL’s. When you create a post or page in wordpress the title you create is the URL to that page or post.

linkIn wordpress these are also known as Permalinks.

Matt Cutts from Google says that the first 3 to 5 words in a URL are given more weight.

So this means you don’t want to be creating long website URLs (permalinks):

www.yourdomainname.com/so-this-is-your-crazy-long-website-url-going-on-and-on

Nor do you want to create URL’s that are numeric:

www.yourdomainname.com/12345

Or use the default setting in wordpress:

 www.yourdomainname.com/?p=123

If you are creating numeric or default permalinks. You can change the structure of your permalink in your wordpress dashboard by going to Settings and then under Permalinks simply change it to Posts and then click Save Changes.

I created a very short video showing you how to create the perfect permalink. And I’ll also show you how to add a tagline to your title and not change the permalink. To watch this video just click here.

Ok, let’s see what the members have for you today.
