When are are talking about SEO, we have to remember SEO are of two types : First is On-Page SEO and second one is Off-Page SEO.

It will automatically generate your permalink from your post Title, but there is a Custom Permalink option in permalink section by which we can edit automatic generated link. To write SEO friendly permalink, must use keyword in link and remove stop words link vowels (A, an, the) from keywords in permalink.

5) Limit Keywords Density
It is very important to maintain Keyword density for better ranking in search engines. If you will use Too less keywords then it lead to less ranking, whereas if you will stuffing or using too much Keywords lead to over optimization. I recommend you to maintain the keyword ration as 2% in a post. Only add keywords in specific places where it is necessary to place keyword. Must use keywords in Post title, Alt tag, Description, Permalink and in Footer of the post. Don’t use keyword again and again to manipulate the search engines, it will decrease your ranking. After completing your article, check again your whole post and realize are you used too less keywords or used too much keywords in your post. If you then maintain it and publish your post. 🙂
