    • Hi Ahmed,

      Changing permalink is not at all recommended, because it will delete your old url & create a 404 page not found issue. In case you change the permalink after publishing, you need to do 301 redirect.

  5. Thanks alot for this piece of information. i’ll implement it in all my posts from now on.

    After reading this complete article, I would must say that you rocked this article. 😀

    You had covered all the major things in this article and made it helpful.

    From last few days, I had reading some of your articles and I found that you are putting more efforts in your articles and trying your best to serve better content.

    That’s really good for your blog. 😀

    I would also suggest you to focus on building genuine email subscribers on your blog. Try to add links to subcribe to your newsletter in the middle of your post.

    This will boost your email list.

    Either way, keep up the awesome work with your blog.

    Have a nice weekend. 😀

That would help in structuring the blog. I also recommend the plugin Yoast SEO. This plugin reminds you of all the SEO points which are the same as the tips mentioned.
