Default Blogs?

Can someone let me know if the people who designed my website have set up my blog in the correct fashion.

Here is a link to my most recent blog http://www.aandmschoolofmotoring.com/blog?aid=3631

The bit I concerned about is the aid=3631 part. Surely it should read buying your first car as this is what the blog is about.

any thoughts would be appreciated as usual.

Cheers

Matt.

Hello,

I think your blog not built by Wordpress.

Is it custom made software ?

In Wordpress, there is an option for Permalink.

Instead of:
http://www.aandmschoolofmotoring.com/blog?aid=3631

You can have the url address for artcile as follow:
http://www.aandmschoolofmotoring.com...-buying-a-car/

Perhaps you could ask your web developer to setup permalink structure for your blog.

Robinmark.

I am concerned about the URL that my blog has.

I am asking to see if anyone thinks my URL should read something like ......http://www.aandmschoolofmotoring.com...your-first-car

I have looked at other blogs from other sites and usually that's what the URL usually looks like. NOT a bunch of letters and number.

Matt

I think it is custom software from what I remember them saying.

Is this a bad thing for seo that it doesn't show as you have stated?

You can simply install WP and 301 redirect to particulate URL blog root..by using this way you will now loss ranking...It will come back when your new URL will index.
I know it's difficult but day by day the database will be a huge..

Dont go wild on it - search engines are efficient enough to index such URLs - but its preferrable and makes it understandable for a normal user. Yes WP makes it easier for you.

If you haven't lost any thing - convert to WP.

Do you think it's ok if I leave it the way it is?

Will it make big difference?

Matt

Hi Matt. It's okay to leave it. While the keyword text may be one ranking factor within the algorithm, there are hundreds of factors. It can be good to have it that way if you are using wordpress and start that way. But I would just continue on and not worry about it if I were you.

Many thanks for your input.

I know I can trust you!




Ps is adding a blog regularly a good thing even if it isn't exactly geared perfectly to my keywords? For example my last blog was about buying a car but my website is To do with learning to drive.

Matt
