Most Important Setting for SEO

Your permalinks are your most important setting in terms of SEO for highest possible Google organic rankings. Because of the way WordPress works, can include post date, title, or other elements. If you are building a brand new site and Google traffic is important for you, then use Custom Permalinks along these lines: /%category%/%postname%/ or this /%category%/%postname%.html (either will work, for ladder can be tricky to implement)


If you ever need to change WordPress permalink settings for whatever the reason, then, you should plan ahead and make sure that you use correctly, or else your website rankings will fluctuate drastically.

Also, due to WordPress being popular, its prone to comment spam, so make sure that the settings under Discussion > Before a comment appears > Comment must be manually approved option is checked.

Furthermore, you can and should include the URL’s for pinging. How to is explained on blog post. Because ideally, you want search engines to find your new content for quicker indexation and ranking
