SEO for WordPress Links with Permalink

Having properly named links is a great thing to be found in search engines. Working with WordPress 3.6 this is done pretty easy with PermaLinks.

Configuration is done at Settings > Permalink and allows to define how the links should look like. Beside various time variables the category and topic are the most valuable ones:

After setting the configuration the .htaccess files needs to be updated as well (if not done automatically). In this case we go for .htaccess of:


RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /wordpress/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /wordpress/index.php [L]
