Create Custom Urls For Your Blog - The Blog Social

04.Oct.2021

There are numerous benefits to creating custom links for your blog or website. When you create a custom branded link, it allows you to have more control over the visibility of your content. This is particularly important if you have done some SEO work on your site and want to ensure people reach the most appropriate page rather than an irrelevant one. It also makes it easier for other bloggers and websites to hyperlink back to your site without having to go through a third party service such as bitly.

Create Custom Urls For Your Blog: A Quick Way To Do It Using Wordpress

WordPress users can quickly get their own custom urls by using plugins such as Pretty Link . These kinds of plugins will let you use something like http://yoursite.com/awesome instead of yoursite.com/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=seo+fairy , both work well but I think you can agree that the former is a lot easier to read and remember for users.

I won't cover how Pretty Link works as it covers this better than I ever could on their site, all you need to do is install the plugin, activate it then go into settings and enter in your custom url which should be something similar to http://yoursite.com/category1.

You can also just use a free service such as Namechckr  to create custom urls by entering a domain name after signing up for an account. The service will then return a custom url for your domain. It's as easy to use as it shows so I won't go into any more detail either.
