As a beginner in blog SEO, I don’t know how to optimize the search engine result so my blog are in there…. in page 1. I know many factor will depends on for make that.
I try to use this plugin, Platinum SEO, in my self hosting WordPress blog…
You just need to give a check box based on an information that show if you click the option. After that click Apply (save setting)… and this plugins will works.
Would be safer to use Platinum SEO if you do change the permalink structure because it’s supporting 301 Redirect feature automatically.
