Facts About URL’s
URL stands for “Uniform Resource Locator” and this is a method of identifying a web site and page for both visitors and search engines. The URL of any web page should be descriptive and brief.
URL’s should be as easy for human visitors to understand as search engines. Most sites these days have multiple pages with the home page URL simply identified by the site name. As you add pages to the site, they should briefly describe each page.
For example, web site structure includes multiple levels of files and navigation. Folders and sub-folders can be called by simple names that quickly tell a visitor what to expect. When you see this URL:
You can easily tell that this URL points to an About Us page on the Adaptivity Pro website. Besides being clear and easy to understand, a URL should always be shorter than 2083 characters. This is a requirement for Internet Explorer. Hyphens should be used to separate words in a URL.
It is highly recommended that a URL use words whenever possible to indicate what it is. The human visitors as well as search engines prefer that practice over the use of a string of numbers to indicate a location or substance. You can quickly see from the example below how much easier one URL is to read and understand than the other:
The first one is simple and to the point but you would need to click on the second one in order to see what the URL points to.
