For example: This post title “Title Slugs, Permalinks, How They Drive Traffic” in WordPress is automatically generated to read: http://jrotman.wordpress.com/2008/08/03/title-slugs-permalinks-how-they-drive-traffic
a bit clumsy in permalink form. However, I have the option to Edit the slugs if I choose. I changed this post slug to read instead:
a post title that when formatted as a permalink seems a bit more concise and focused on my intent: discuss driving traffic to a blog.
I’ve spent time in some cases tweaking my post slugs, and as far as SEO goes, I consider it a task that’s just another piece of the puzzle. But instead of reinventing the wheel, I will instead defer to this post on editing blog title slugs by Andy Beal-Marketing Pilgrim.
