WordPress offers you plenty of options for choosing a permalink structure for your blog. For instance, you can chose to have dates, post IDs, categories ,post title, author in the pemalinks.
Common Examples permalink for wordpress we use:
- The Shortest : /%postname%/
- The Keyword : /one-static-keyword/%postname%/
- The Category : /%category%/%postname%/
- The Tag : /%tag%/%postname%/
- The Archivist : /%year%/%month%/%postname%/
No problem if you use any of the structure from the above list but the best permalink structure is /%post_id%/%postname%/
Main reason behind is it Significantly increases WordPress performance First part of the URL of your posts will include a number which is unique identifier of a post and WordPress will use only this number to quickly find post in the database. If you don’t have post_id in URL, WordPress will use slug for finding the post, which means that it should search for a TEXT throughout the database, which is much slower operation that searching for a number.
if your blog is a news magazine,it should be included in Google News,it includes quite a few multi-author blogs in their index and one of their technical requirements says that all article URLs must contain a unique number. If in future, this blog grows and gets included into Google News, I won’t have to alter the permalink structure because there’s a unique number already in the URL – it’s called Post ID.
if you change title of the post URL slug must be changed ,so it won’t effect with your new article Slug.
finally with this structure you will have SEO permalinks and performence enhanced wordpress.
