    Here are the most important ones:
    - Noindex your media, tag pages, archive pages.
    - Disable author archive pages
    - 100% enable XML sitemap functionality.
    - Enable breadcrumbs.
    - Enable stripping the /category/ from the URL.

        Hey Nitin, those pages usually don't carry much value, unless they're specifically maintained, meaning they get unique content.

      Great stuff! I would add:

      Make sure your posts and pages have unique (SEO) titles that are different from the on-page titles.

      Also, make sure they also have unique meta descriptions that are attractive and would make searchers want to click when they see your page in SERPs

    Wow! This's super useful!
    I have been creating my own WP blog using a professionally coded template by TemplateMonster https://www.templatemonster.com/ . I initially opted for a SEO friendly template, but your recommendations seem very useful for me too.
