Random Blog Tips – Permalink Titles

This will be a quick tip – but a good one. Consider the making the titles of your blog posts Permalinks.

You’ll see I’ve done this to my blog here at ProBlogger both on my main page (where you can click the title of each post to go to the individual page) but also in category pages and individual pages themselves. The reason I do this is twofold – one it makes it clear how readers can get to the individual pages, but two its good for the optimization of your blog in Search Engines to not only have a link to the page but to have it with the keywords of that article (which should be in your title). Its the same principle if people on other sites link to you – they are more powerful links in SEO terms if the links contain the words your post is about.

    This is an excellent tip! I’ve noticed that Google search results always direct users to the main page and they can’t find what they were looking for in other posts. And people’s attention spans are very slim when surfing.

    I will definitely spend some time to edit all of my posts and make them hyperlinks from my permalinks.

    Thanks! And I thoroughly enjoy reading ProBlogger on a daily basis. I’ve learned alot from you!
