    Hey guys,

    I wanted to know what are the best SEO practices for Yoast and Wordpress. For example, urls should be category/blogpost-name or just /blogpost-name

    Most people use xxxx.com/post-name format, so you can choose this permlink format on the dashboard of your wordpress.

    WP beginner site has a ton of tutorials, very useful, check more step by step guides there. It got a yoast seo plugin article.

    I also prefer shorter urls, not a big fan of /category or /tag (and then post) urls. Unless you have a TON of content on your sites with thousands of articles it's better to keep it short and sweet.

    Yeah that's what I've been used to.


    I think I will go with subcategory/post-name because I am planning to have a TON of content :D

    Also, is keyword accumulative? Let's say there's 2 keywords, photos and beautiful (both being different keywords) will using beautiful photos as keyword target three variations as: photos, beautiful and beautiful photos?

    Keep URLs short, simple and relevant
    Can be, but IMO, it's always better to use long-tail keywords. -Micah
