SEO friendly URLs contain words that clearly explain the content of the page, and they’re easy to read by both humans and search engines.

You can choose the Custom Structure option and enter /%postname%/ for example. This will make your links look like http://yourdomain.com/the-name-of-your-post/. Or you can enter /%category%/%postname%/ if you want to include the name of your category in the URL. You can also add custom text or other WordPress variables. The full list of available variables that you can use in your permalinks can be found at the WordPress official website.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”mulled_wine” style=”double” border_width=”2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1511534799645{background-color: #ebebeb !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Famous WWW vs non-WWW debate” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center|color:%23000000″ google_fonts=”font_family:Alef%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” css_animation=”fadeIn”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_message message_box_style=”solid” message_box_color=”blue”]From a SEO standpoint there’s no advantage to using one or another.[/vc_message][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Navigate to Settings >> General Settings

If you are just starting out with your website, then you need to choose whether you want to use www (http://www.example.com) or non-www (http://example.com) in your site’s URL.

Search engines consider these to be two different websites, so this means you need to choose one and stick to it.

You can set your preference by visiting the Settings » General page. Add your preferred URL in both the ‘WordPress Address’ and ‘Site Address’ fields.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”mulled_wine” style=”double” border_width=”2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1511534799645{background-color: #ebebeb !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Optimizing Images for Search Engines” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center|color:%23000000″ google_fonts=”font_family:Alef%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” css_animation=”fadeIn”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_message message_box_style=”solid” message_box_color=”blue”]Instal Seo Optimized Images By priyanshu mittal[/vc_message][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The SEO Optimized Images plugin lets you dynamically insert Seo Friendly alt attributes and title attributes to your Images .

When a page is rendered, php and mysql are used. Therefore, system needs RAM and CPU.
If many visitors come to a site, system uses lots of RAM and CPU so page is rendered so slowly.
In this case, you need a cache system not to render page again and again.
Cache system generates a static html file and saves. Other users reach to static html page.

Setup of this plugin is so easy. You don’t need to modify the .htacces file. It will be modified automatically.

When it comes to page analysis, you need to know exactly what you’re doing. SEO by Yoast makes sure that you’re always on the right track.

For example, Yoast SEO can quickly scan any page for images, ensuring that each one has an alt tag that matches the primary keyword for the post. Along with this, it checks your content for length and confirms whether or not your meta description is up to par. And, that’s just the start.

When you look at this, it’s easy to see what you’ve done right and if you’ve done anything wrong. In the event that a green check mark is absent from a particular line, you can address the issue before publishing – for example, heading back to your meta description to make a tweak or two.

If you need guidance with each aspect of your site’s SEO, the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin has your back. Thanks to its simple, yet detailed approach, it’ll never let you down.
