Update Permalinks

In WordPress, “permalinks” are how your site writes your URLs. This is important to change because it will help you greatly with SEO (search engine optimization) so that your audience can find you on Google.

  • In the WP-Admin area, go to SETTINGS > PERMALINKS
  • Under Common Settings, select the CUSTOM STRUCTURE radial button, and enter this in the text box to the right:

/%category%/%postname%/

  • Click SAVE CHANGES

This will make it so instead of your URLs looking like this:

They will look like this:

http://www.freetravelwebsitetemplates.com/category/postname
