The Power of Search Engine Friendly URLs
URLs can play important role in search engines, make sure that it should be easily understandable. If your site url is not simple than it may happen that some good search engines like google will not pick it due to lack of search engine friendliness.
For example look at the following URL “http://www.beakablos.com/ShowCategory.php?CategoryID=13” this is not exactly search engine friendly. If this url comes to search engine eventually, it will ignore this or may do not rank it properly. And as far as site viewers are concerned, they also will not pay any attention towards it, because it is too difficult to remember.
Now look at the other URL “http://www.beakablos.com/kabob-recipe-category-13.html “
As compared to previous one this is pretty understandable and can be easily remembered as well. This is actually a search engine friendly url. Why it is search engine friendly because it has relevant keywords in its url that probably will help in increasing the rank of website. Moreover it is bit easy to crawl.
All this is fine but now do you ever think how you can make your site URLs more search engine friendly? Simple, if you already have a url not friendly with the search engine, than use MOD_REWRTIE module, that will give you facility to rewrite Url.
