    blog seo problem

    I have a blog and I would like to change it so that instead of this "blog/?page_id=11", I would like something like this "blog/haunted_houses/ghosthouse1"

    I installed that SEO template for wordpress but it doesnt seem to be working, what should I do?

    You need to change your permalink structure in your wordpress settings, be mindful in doing this though, as I am unsure as to how well it updates older links.

    instead of worry about the url, make sure your keywords are sticking out in you blogs i.e. using <strong> on all of them.

    Or use correct hiearchy within the code of your blog

    <h1>heading 1</h1>

    <h2>heading 2</h2>

    <p> text <strong>keyword</strong> <em>keyword</em>
    <a href="www.google.com">keyword</a></p>

    <h3>Heading 3</h3>

    This is how google wants you to lay out your code. You can get really good seo even if your url doesnt fit.

    Put your most important keywords in the title tag
