  • Use relevant keywords: Incorporate important keywords that accurately represent the content of your pages. This helps search engines understand the context of your content and can improve your website's visibility in relevant search results.
  • Avoid keyword stuffing: While using keywords in your URL is beneficial, overusing them can appear spammy and may harm your website's reputation. Focus on creating natural, readable URLs that convey the essence of your content.
  • Use lowercase letters: To maintain consistency and avoid confusion, always use lowercase letters in your URLs. This ensures they are easily accessible across different platforms and browsers.
  • Avoid special characters and spaces: Special characters, such as exclamation marks or question marks, can cause issues with some browsers and servers. Similarly, spaces in URLs can cause problems and are generally replaced with %20, which looks untidy. Stick to alphanumeric characters, dashes, and underscores for best results.
