SEO Site Structure for Success on WordPress

SEO site structure can be achieved very easily with WordPress sites by updating the site permalinks with a little custom code. The code is called category – post name taxonomy, or category then posts or pages in the website link structure.

The way to change the permalinks on a WordPress website is rather straight forward. First, log into the back end of your WordPress site, usually located at www . yourwebsite . com/wp-admin or www . yourwebsite.com/login. Once in the back end Dashboard, navigate to the “Settings” option (the last item in the main menu on the left). While hovering over Settings, choose “Permalinks” from the secondary menu.

Then click the blue “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page. Now check out the link structure on the website by refreshing a page. Notice how the links are all clean names and are the perfect SEO site structure.
