3. Change the WordPress Default Theme
By the Default WordPress after being installed uses Twenty Ten Theme on the blog, that doesn’t look professional and looks to be lazy!. To make Theme Design looks Attractive and Professional, you must have to change your theme. To change the theme you first need to choose a theme for your blog, and then have to upload and install it! Actually there are two types of themes to download, first that are downloaded for free, while the second cannot be download until you purchase it! They are called to be Premium. I’ll soon write a post on Installing the Theme! 🙂 for the new bloggers!

5. Set Permalinks Structure
The Permalink is an abbreviation of Permanent Link. By Default WordPress uses Question Mark (?), and lots of numbers in the URLs, but it also offers us to set custom Permalinks, you should see How I set up my blog’s Permalinks in the image here,
See, I have setup /%category%/%postname%/ as my blog’s custom Permalinks. In this way the Permalinks also increase Traffic. These Permalinks should be setup just after the installation, because if you will do it late, then at that moment they would be indexed in the Google and when you change it the 404 errors will be there.
