By default, WordPress is using a plain permalink structure ex. http://yoursite.com?p=123. If you are a blogger and concern about search engine ranking, I’m sure you don’t like that kind of permalink structure, but for online shops and other type of websites, this kind of permalink is perfectly okay.
