Using descriptive folder and filenames can help your site get crawled better by search engines. That way you can have "friendlier"
URLs for those that want to remember your urls. Visitors usually don't like extremely long and complex URLs.
If your URLs contains relevant words, users and search engines will have more information about your page. Also keep in mind
that the URL is displayed at the search result in Google at the bottom. URLs can be found as a result from a user's query.
Sometimes it is useful to rewriting your dynamic URLs to static ones. But you have to be careful cause if you do it incorrectly, it
could cause crawling issues with your site.
Use ONLY one version of URL for each document. Prevent users from linking to a page with a different url, cause this will split the
reputation of the page.
In order to improve your URLs you should avoid:
- deep nested subdirectories like "/lessons/english/level1/exerise7/test/mytest.html"
- using big URLs with unnecessary parameters
- using defualt page names like "mypage.html"
- using repeated keywords
- using directory names unrelavant to your page
- mixing www. and non-www. URLs in your code
- using capital letters for URLs cause it is very uncommon and hard to remember.
