Immediately after you install WordPress, change your Permalink structure.
WordPress, by default, creates your links using parameters and numbers (i.e. /?p=123). Not a very search engine friendly URL.
Changing your permalinks to a more search engine friendly URL will help search engines find your website and help visitors understand what your page(s) or post(s) are about.
Creating Search Engine Friendly Permalinks
- Login to WordPress
- Click on ‘Settings’ in the left margin
- Click on ‘Permalinks’
- Check the radio button near ‘Month and name’
- Click the ‘Save Changes’ button
Now when you create a new blog post, your title will be shown in the URL along with the blog post date.
