MQ Permalinks

Description

MQ Permalinks is a plugin for the wordpress blog to make permalinks modification-secure. Changing blog name, page name or category slug creates broken links on external pages because the url for a specific page is changed.

MQPermalinks plugin creates modification-secure permalinks as follows:

  • p57-postname
  • a88-pagename
  • c2-categoryslug

Even if the names are modified for SEO reasons, older links will stay valid. Furthermore, if the page structure is modified, the permalinks for pages stay the same.

Example:

Above link urls can be uptimized for keyword as follows, leaving the old links still working:

  • p57-keyword-postname
  • a88-keyword-pagename
  • c2-keyword-categoryslug

Note:

Changing a post name, page name or category slug, creates a new URL with identical content. WordPress, however, includes a canonical link into the head section of the page telling search machines and browsers the correct URL for the page.

Installation

  1. Unzip the package, and upload mqpermalinks to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Note:

The plugin creates a .htaccess file in the root directory

The plugin sets permalink structure option to default and disables the main menu link “change permalinks”
