If you maybe think that /%postname%/ is a good permalink structure, you might find out that is not as you think. I mean, I haven’t any problem in using the /%postname%/ as my permalink structure, and that was until I’ve read this article. In the article on digwp.com Cris Coyier talks about permalink structure and how this has causes him some trouble. After I read this article, I did a permalink change in order to avoid future problems. If you want to find out more, just follow the link above.
I’ll be honest, at first after I did some reading my first thought was”what about SEO and Google indexation?” If I change now my permalink structure what impact will have this on my ranking? The answer came right away on the same article. I have to say Chris did a really nice job explaining all the downfalls for this changes, even if they are very low.
I will have to run more tests to be sure that I did everything right, but still this is progress from many points of view and I really encourage you to take 10 minutes from your time and read the full article.
