How to Permalink Your Posts to Your Blog
Are you looking for a way to keep your blog content fresh in the minds of your readers? The answer is quite simple, all you need to do is create a post linking back to your blog and you’ve instantaneously provided your readers with an excellent opportunity to visit your site. This article will teach you everything you need to know about creating a permalink for your posts so you can link back to any one of them at any time.
The Basics Of Creating A Permalink
A permalink is a unique URL that will always point to the specific post you are trying to promote. If you want to create a permalink for one of your posts, you need to do the following:
- Find the article
- Check the box that says Permalink included
- Click on the Save button.
While this might seem like a lot of work, it actually takes less than five minutes to set up a permalink for a post. After you’ve done that, you can start using the permalink immediately in your posts. When someone clicks on a permalink, the browser will take them directly to the post.
Make Sure To Use The Correct URL Structure
If you’re using WordPress.com, you can use the default permalink structure provided by the platform. If you’re using WordPress.org, you can use any URL structure you want so long as it includes the.wordpress.org domain. Your permalink should be as concise as possible while still being descriptive enough for a human to understand what it is referencing. The best practice is to keep it as short as possible while using keywords wherever possible. Here’s a shorter example of a permalink that you can use to describe this article:
Don’t Forget The Description
The permalink is only as good as the description associated with it. When someone clicks on a permalink, the description should give them an idea of what the post is about. If you don’t have a description yet, don’t worry; you will after you’ve created the permalink. For the best results, use the same keyword or phrase that you used for the permalink in the description.
Use The Right Click To Save
One of the unique features of WordPress.com is that you can easily connect your posts to a Blogger blog that you’ve created. When you do this, you can give each post it’s own custom permalink. To do this, you need to use the Right Click to Save feature on your post. Just highlight the post you want to connect to your blog and then click on the custom link that appears in the menu that pops up. This will take you directly to the post’s dashboard where you can create a permalink as you normally would if this was a post that you’d already published on your Blogger blog.
The Difference Between A Blogger Blog And A WordPress Blog
Depending on your choice of blogging platform, you’ll either end up with a Blogger blog or a WordPress blog when you initially create one. To understand the difference between these two platforms, you need to understand a little bit about how blogs work. A WordPress blog can behave quite differently from a Blogger blog. The primary difference is that a WordPress blog can be accessed through a web browser while a Blogger blog can only be read by Google’s RSS readers. This means that a WordPress blog can be found and accessed by people with no affiliation to your site while a Blogger blog can only be seen by those who have chosen to follow your content.
Use The Search Engines
When someone clicks on a permalink, the engine that they’re using will determine what content they see. There are several search engines that you can use to find content on the Internet, but the primary two are Google and Bing. When you use these search engines to find content that’s relevant to what you’re looking for, the results will be displayed in order of popularity. Naturally, since you’ve created the permalink, the content will be linked directly back to your blog.
Keep It Short
Shorter is usually better when it comes to web addresses. When you keep your permalink short, the Googlebot will be able to easily find and index your content. The shorter the permalink, the better. One important thing to keep in mind is when choosing a permalink for your blog, you must never use anything but the.wordpress.org top-level domain. This is because Google prohibits using other TLDs in conjunction with a blog’s content.
Creating a permalink for your posts is quite simple and can be done in a matter of minutes. If you want to make sure that your content stays fresh in the minds of your readers, all you need to do is create a permalink for each one of your posts. When someone clicks on a permalink, the browser will take them directly to the post.
