If you’re a new bie in blogging field, you should definetly know about the on-page seo and off-page seo. Without knowing anything about SEO, you should not expect any good results from search engines like google, bing etc. Before you make posts on your blogger, just spend a few mins for thinking about what are the things you are going to use for on-page seo for that partcular post.
Recently I wrote a post about 5 On-Page SEO basics that Every Beginner must follow for His Blog’s Success. In that, I have discussed about each and every term which will help you for on-page seo. In URL category, I have said that Custom Permalink feature helps us a lot in making on-page seo. So in this post, I`m discussing indetail about what is custom permalink and how this custom permalink works and how to redirect the new custom permalinks to old urls.
For example, the title of my recent post is “5 On-Page SEO basics that Every Beginner must follow for His Blog’s Success.”, so my automatic generated url will be like this,
“2014/04/5-on-page-seo-basics-that-every.html”, which dosen’t look good for me because my main keywords are not present in that url. So in that case, we have to use custom permalink featrure which means that we can insert our own keywords in the url. Now I’m using custom permalink for that post as I’m not satisfied with the automatic permalink. I will write my custom permalink in such a way that my main keywords will be present which will help me for on-page seo.
The custom permalink which I did for that post is,
“http://www.tricks99.com/2014/04/5-on-page-seo-basics-every-beginner-must-follow.html”, my complete keywords are present in this custom permalink.
- At the right side, under the menu ‘Post Settings’ click the option ‘Links’
- Now select ‘Custom Permalink’ and write your keywords as I shown in the below picture. Leave the ‘Title Link’ and ‘Enclosure Link’ as blank and finally click ‘Done’. Use ” – ” in middle of the words instead of leaving spaces.
- Thats it. You have succesfully created your own url by using the custom permalink feature.
