    Well, its in the title. I tried playing with different SEO Plugins but they arent touching the way the url is displayed. I would like it to be something like "Main_words_in_pagetitle" and not "pg_id=32".

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    ^Correct

    - go to your AdminCP
    - Click on the Settings tab
    - Look down on the list and click "Permalinks"
    - Adjust to what you want to display. I use this for most my blogs

    /%category%/%postname%.php

    that way if the category is related to your KW then it will help your SEO

    good luck
