How to Setup WordPress for Basic SEO

On the left hand side, hover over Settings and click on General
Change Tagline to something related to your site (I recommend the “type” of business or individual such as Chinese buffet or basket weaver whatever may be the case).
Click “Save Changes”

Title and Tagline shows up on the homepage and on top of every post, category, etc.

On the left hand side, hover over Settings and click on Permalinks
Change Permalink Settings to Custom Structure and enter:
/%category%/%postname%/

By default your permalinks will look like:
http://huigardens.com/2018/11/13/hello-world/

With the new permalink structure, it’ll look like:
http://huigardens.com/uncategorized/hello-world/

Of course that will look better once you name your categories properly.
