For example, if you previously created a blog on blogspot, it is generally address formatted posts:
"name.blogspot.com/years/month/link-post.html"
Format url above last month led to years later posting addresses and closed with  .html . Well, if you suddenly want to move the website to WordPress, the website URL format must be adjusted as well so that we do not lose traffic, especially if the website is already installed Google Adsense. This is where the function of the WordPress permalink to perform the task.
In addition to adjusting the url format, permalink can also help to further simplify the url posting on the website example: " domain.com/alamat-postingan-yang-baru/ ". The URL format is certainly more modest when compared with the blogspot url above, and certainly more SEO Friendly.

  1. You've changed the previous post slug after published, and then change the permalink.
  2. Permalink previously located at the end of the extension such as .html, .asp, .php, and others, but on the extension of new permalink eliminated
