Make your post link short and SEO friendly…Automatically !

By default WordPress puts the exact title of the blog post as its post URL. Have a look here:


What this means is that, if you have a blog post titled: “This post have a very long title that runs for miles”

You will end up with a URL that looks something like:


Isn’t that irritating?

Take my word when I say that these long URLs do not come easily.

Long URLs have a lot of problems already attached with them:

  • They are difficult to pass on to other bloggers or your readers.
  • If you are passing them in Emails, then the long URL will break into half. The URL will no longer work correctly. There is nothing worse than someone replying back to your email saying that your link doesn’t work.
  • Long URLs often get truncated. In such cases the user will end up at “page not found” page instead of your blog post

But I still haven’t told you of the BIGGEST problem with long URLs.

Long URLs are NOT Search engine friendly.

This is the BIGGEST of all the problems with long URLs.

Let me explain this further.

Let’s say you have a blog post that is titled:
“Wordpress Blogger Livejournal which blog service should you use?”

Then this is your default URL given by WordPress: “http://www.yourblog.com/213/wordpress-blogger-livejournal-which-blog-service-should-you-use/”

That’s NOT how your URL should look like if you want a top search engine ranking for such search terms. Absolutely not.

You want your URLs to be short and Search Engine Optimized.

Here is how:

If someone wants to compare some specific blogging platforms, they will type words like “wordpress”, “blogger”, “livejournal” etc…


They are less likely to type words like “which”, “should”, “you”, “use” etc… So I see that in your URL, only the keywords “wordpress, blogger” etc… are popular. Others are not.

Your URL contains 10 keywords. Only 3 among them are likely to be searched often and that’s what your important keywords are. What you are doing here is reducing the value of important keywords like “wordpress, blogger” etc… by adding more words like “which blog service you should use”.

So in conclusion:

Your post won’t have a well search engine optimized link. This will surely affect your search engine ranking.

Why? Because you have reduced the value of your main keywords.

So now you know why long URLs are bad. You also know that WordPress doesn’t really do much about it.

What do you do next?

SEO Post Links Plugin by MaxBlogPress.

The SEO Post Links Plugin has been developed by keeping in mind all the shortcomings of the default WordPress configuration. To put it briefly, this plugin makes your blog post link short as well as optimizes it for search engine.

Here is a screenshot of the settings page of the plugin.



Maximum characters option:
You can specify the longest number of characters for your post slug. So you control how long you want your URL to be without comprising with the post title.

Force removal option:
You can even forcefully remove words from a URL that are shorter than the maximum slug length specified in the above option.

Unnecessary words options:
The plugin makes it easier for you by already including a lot of unnecessary words by default. SEO Post Link will automatically filter out all these keywords from your post link retaining only the good keywords for which you actually want to rank for.

You can also add or delete words from that list.

Remove short words option:
You can automatically remove words that are shorter than say 4 or 5 characters that will not be needed in a URL. You can have this feature turned on or off.

  2. Hi Luis,

    This is one of the most important steps to take whenever we write and publish a post. I mean if you’ve spent so much time writing your perfect post, why would you let your SEO unfriendly permalink negate everything you’ve done. I used the All In One SEO Pack and I loved it too.

  4. Search Engine Optimizers

    SEO is an abbreviation for “search engine optimizer” or “Search Engine Optimization”.

    SEOs provide useful services for websites and for website owners,

    SEO can do:

    Writing content for the website
    Giving advice on site architecture
    Finding relevant directories to which a site can be submitted
    (to make it reachable to more and more…)

    Finally, SEO should bring relevant visitors to your website

    Overall, “to make a website relevant and useful for one or many topics”
    This is what I feel.

    Please make a not that manipulating search engine results is not the work of SEO this is unfair and very ugly.

    No search engine has got any relationship with any SEO company and they are 100% independent of their own. All the search engines have their own method for displaying search results for a given search term.

    All search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN wants to display search result very appropriate for the user.

    So what they do?
    They have index of millions of WebPages, it means they are aware of so many WebPages and they have their method to rank them for a given keyword.

    They know which page out of all is most important and relevant for a given keyword. But who will make a decision? “The Formula” it can be like


    he he . who knows?? 🙂

    In simple what we can understand is there are two important points.
    1. Your website and – (Content of your website)
    2. Other websites – (Other websites)

    Your website:
    That can be done in any language or on any platform for a purpose.

    So, your purpose to create a website is very much important. Your website must full fill that purpose. If your website is solving the purpose of its existence then of course it is a relevant website for that topic or keyword and it should be reachable to maximum people who are in search on that.

    For example: An e-commerce website. Web site is supposed to sell cloth items. How this website will become a relevant website for search term “Buy a Dress Online”

    Website should have to sell something called Dress, is not it?
    Website should have enough information on Dress.

    If the website has enough content for selling dress online, then for sure is relevant for search phrase “Buy Dress Online”

    SEOs (search engine optimizer) says this “on page optimization”

    What they do here? Once I have enough content that’s all, why they need to do anything?

    Yes!! here the SEO will help you in presenting your website to search engines. They will highlight those words, keywords which is important for your website.

    How they will do that?

    Search engines are not human being. They read text on your website. For example by reading a text in bold you will know, this is something more important then normal text.

    SEO knows which text to place and where to place and how.

    That is all about on page optimization.

    Now we can see, what they know and we don’t.
    even we should know…

    Keyword in URL
    First word is best, second is better, like Indian-SEO it says first Indian then SEO

    Keyword in domain name
    Same as in http://www.Indian-SEO.com

    Keyword in title tag
    Keyword in Title tag – in beginning
    Title tag 10 – 60 characters, no special character like “<>(){}&*%#@”

    Keyword in H1, H2 and H3
    Use H1 font style – very important

    Keyword in description meta tag
    Talk about your theme, less than 200 chars is ok.

    Keyword in keyword metatag
    Every word in this tag MUST appear somewhere in the body.
    If not, it is irrelevance and not good

    Keyword density in body text
    5 – 20% – (all keywords/ total words)

    Individual keyword density
    1 – 6% – (each keyword/ total words)

    Keyword font size
    In strong, bold, italic, etc.

    Keyword proximity for 2 or more keywords
    More adjacent is better

    Keyword phrase order
    Order in the page should match order in the search query?
    Better you anticipate query – better your chances are.

    Keyword prominence
    Most important at top of page, in bold, in large font

    Keyword in alt text
    Should describe graphic – Do not fill with spam

    Domain Name Class
    .edu – seem to be given the highest status
    .org – sites seem to be given high status
    .com – normal

    File Size
    Do not exceed 100K page size.
    Search engines preferred <40K

    URL length
    You should keep it minimized – use less than the 2,000 characters allowed by IE – less than 100 is good

    Site Size – Search engines likes big sites
    Larger sites are presumed to be better funded, better organized, better constructed, and therefore better sites.

    Site Age
    Old is gold.

    Now we can talk about the other part Other Websites
    How old they are?
    How many pages they have?
    What all they are doing?
    How many friend they have got?

    Yes, we should know all these things. we will talk about this next time.
    I will write that part soon…
