How to set Permalink with WordPress [For beginners]

What is Permalink?

Permalink is a permanent link URL. Permanent means that even if you add an article or change the composition, the URL of each article does not change.

If you build a site manually, you often change the URL if you change the article composition. However, if the URL of the article changes, the link placed on the article will be invalid. Even if all the links in the site can be modified, links from outside sites can not be modified.

This problem does not occur if the URL is permalink. You can also use this permalink in WordPress. Keep in mind how to customize permalink, since WordPress’ s default permalink setting is a bit tasteless to use article number as it is.

Permalink setting notes

The point to pay attention to when setting permalinks is that you must do it the first time you set up your site with WordPress . This is because if you change permalink settings on a blog that is already in operation, all the URLs of existing articles will also change.

Let’s set it first as soon as you set up the site so that you want to change it later but you can not change it.

By customizing permalink, it becomes easy to understand the URL of the article, and it is effective to set the URL properly from the viewpoint of SEO.

Why do not you try setting the permalink to the optimal one suitable for your site.
