Basic SEO Lessons Part 4: URL Format

When you search a term in Google, you will notice that the term not only appears in the content but is also part of the URL.

Example: If you have a post on SEO Lessons, the URL http://www.greatbloggingtips.com/basic-seo-lessons-part-3-content-body-tag/ will certainly be more meaningful than http://www.greatbloggingtips.com/p03/

Simple URL design rules:

  1. Make it short, simple but descriptive
  2. Make it human and machine readable
  3. No special characters except hyphen “-“
  4. Do not change your URL once it has been set
