@watson SEO friendly URLs are the URL without unnecessary characters that has a bad effect on Page Rank. Phrases should be separated by the dash and not by underscores. avoid using numbers, special characters etc.

Yes, that's correct! SEO friendly URLs are web addresses that are designed to be easily understandable and descriptive to both users and search engines. They typically include relevant keywords that help search engines identify the content of the page.


Here are some characteristics of an SEO friendly URL:

  1. Descriptive: The URL should provide a clear idea of what the page is about. It should ideally include keywords that accurately describe the content.
  2. Keyword-rich: Including relevant keywords in the URL can help search engines understand the topic of the page and improve its chances of ranking for those keywords.
  3. Short and concise: Keeping the URL succinct and to the point makes it easier for users to remember and share. Additionally, search engines often prefer shorter URLs.
  4. Uses hyphens or dashes: Hyphens are preferred over underscores as word separators in URLs. This is because search engines consider hyphens as word separators, while they may not always recognize underscores.
  5. Avoids unnecessary characters: URLs should avoid using special characters, numbers, or other unnecessary characters that can confuse users and search engines.


By using SEO friendly URLs, websites can improve their chances of ranking higher in search engine results pages and attract more organic traffic.
