  • The first thing you should do when you login to your new wordpress website is to change your password into something that you can remember since the one generated by wordpress is so difficult to remember, for the sake of security.
  • You then proceed to the settings tab and modify the different options, especially the permalinks settings as it will affect your SEO rankings in future.
