    I cam across a blog post today about wordpress permalinks. It kind of surprised me because it told me the way I use permalinks on all of my blogs is negatively affecting the performance of my website.

    I usually use /%postname%/ as the custom structure URL. I see this structure recommended here and in guides and ebooks all the time.

    It turns out that this permalink structure is actually hurting your performance.

    From wordpress.org:

    I now started using /%year%/%postname%/ since it shows users the date of the blog post.

    I was wondering about this as well.. I thought I read somewhere that it might be a good idea to add a .html to the permalinks is this good for seo?

    One more thing what about adding a keyword phrase to permalinks is that doable and a good idea?
