In this excerpt from WordPress in a Weekend, Jesse Friedman offers some quick tips for improving your WordPress site.
From the book

1. Know Where Each Title Belongs    Your blog post has several titles. There is the blog post title seen in Figure 7.11, the SEO title seen in Figure 7.12, and the URL title or slug is seen in Figure 7.13. Make sure you know where each title belongs and get used to writing a few different versions to benefit the user experience.

2.Know Which Image Size You're Choosing    When you upload your photos, WordPress will automatically resize and regenerate those images. The default sizes for those images can be modified in Settings > Media, but you don’t have to worry about that. Instead your theme will likely dictate those sizes. Just make sure you know which image size you’re choosing when you insert the image into your content (Figure 7.15).

3. Know the Issues with Copying from Microsoft Word    Learn how to properly copy content from Microsoft Word to WordPress. If you’re using Word or other local document-editing software and intend on copying your content directly into WordPress, you’re going to be in for a world of hurt. Word adds a ton of extra characters that will show when you paste it into WordPress. Please make sure to copy your content into a plain text editor like Notepad or TextEdit (set to plain text), and then copy that into WordPress or click the Paste From MS button seen in Figure 7.16.
