Updating WordPress again: permalinks

This morning, I updated the blog to use permalinks (the long URLs that should permanently link to a post) to change the format from http://www.tedroche.com/blog/?p=1234 to a newer format that includes the date and a bit of the post title, like: http://www.tedroche.com/blog/2007/11/22/recommendations-for-foss-podcatcher/. This lets you see both the date of the post and title in the link, and it also is more digestable by the search engines. Rather than seeing one page named blog/ with a parameter of P that changes all the time, the search engines now see that there are twenty-eight hundred pages in that directory, each with its own name. We’ll see if it makes any difference…
