If you are a blogger reading this post, you might be aware of the importance of well formed URLs in SEO.
However WordPress Permalinks option provide us an awesome control over the URLs of our blog posts. We can set the URL according to the most searched keyword from this Permalink option.
Well, in spite of this super control over setting the URL, a glitch still remains there.
Do you know which glitch I am talking about?
It’s the ‘Category’ word added to the URL of every category. Though, I am not an SEO expert but as far as I know having this word ‘category’ word in URL is not good for SEO of our blog.

Are my words understandable?
Wait, I will make it simple-
I have many categories in my blog like – android, facebook, iOS etc.
So when I open the posts filed under ‘Facebook’ my URL is – http://www.findwebapp.com/category/facebook/ which is not good according to SEO norms. But when I installed the WP No Category Base’ plugin, my URL changed to http://www.findwebapp.com/facebook/ which I believe will give me sure benefits in SEO and also make my URL easy to remember.
