    Hey everyone.

    I just uploaded a fresh copy of wordpress, and I have a quick question.

    How do you create the blog titles/url?

    My posts show as http://www.somesite.com/blog/?=p4

    How can I change the titles to read http://www.somesite.com/blog/subject-you-want-to-read?

    Is there are any tricks to improve seo on worpress pages?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You change it in your admin menu

    Settings -> Permalinks

    Here you can costumize your permalink structure. Check the "Custom Structure" and in the empty field put

    Code:
    /%postname%/
    That's it. ;)

    Depending on how your blog is laid out - you may want to add in the category to your permalink structure, to push more relevance for your categories.

    Code:
    /%category%/%postname%/

    Just a thought... on those blogs of mine that I have category structure, I add in the category to my permalinks - works decently for me.

    You can also use:

    Code:
    /%category%/%postname%.html
    or for those who would like to run custom php scripts in WP:

    Code:
    /%category%/%postname%.php
