WordPress permalinks are very good and easy to manage our links anywhere. It contains many types of permalinks. All are very useful and good for our SEO. But at the time of installation, when we install WordPress script to our web host, it contain a Default Permalink structure named “/blog” in some WordPress Multisites. It makes our WordPress blog links to be seen ugly and also it disturbs in our SEO.

As for example I am showing to you for your better understanding.

There are links-

These are looking two separate links because in the  first link you will see the slug in permalink “blog”. But in second you will not see any such type of slug. And this /blog slug makes huge difference in permalinks. You will be amazed that both links have a big differnece. The trick here I used is I just removed the “/blog” slug from Default WordPress permalinks.

I am going to explain step by step of removing the /blog slug from permalinks.

Removing /blog slug from WordPress Default permalinks in Multisite

First of all you need to download a plugin and upload it to your WordPress plugin directory.
Download the plugin here.
After downloading the plugin, upload it to your WordPress plugins directory.
Now activate the plugin. The work is not over now.
The main thing is now started. Just got to your WordPress Settings-> Permalinks.
You need to change your permalinks at least two times for making the plugin to be able to remove the /blog slug.
It is very necessary to change you permalink structure two times otherwise your slug /blog will not remove.
See screenshots for more details:
First put like this and save changes and then put any other permalink which you really want to use to your blog like,

Save all changes. Now check your blog it will open without any /blog slug. Enjoy 🙂
How it works- Actually the plugin forces the WordPress to remove the /blog slug when you updated your permalink structure. This is the simple trick. So it is necessary to change your WordPress permalinks two times.
