Blogging with WordPress Part 5

Helpful blog hints and tips when using WordPress
For your settings in WordPress, decide on your permalink format early on. The permalink is the url for each of your blog posts. It will default to just a number unless you set it to one the variety of choices available. Speaking from the SEO point of view, keywords are king, so we would suggest that you use the variation of date with keywords, or select that option, then go into the custom field and delete the date so that only keyword remains.

For comments sections, make sure you moderate all comments. Go to the Settings, Discussion tab in your dashboard/interface. The spambots are already out of control trying to promote their material through blogs, and some spambots are so clever they actually look like they might be legitmate comments, but usually lead to porn sites.
