Title: Very Very Long URL Permalink Structure
Post by: Kaustubh1040 on 05-22-2019, 01:31:02
Hello friends

Today, I have seen a blog using very very long URL (Permalink) and ranking higher in the search engine.

I am confused, till date, What I have learned was short and readable URL structure is good for any blog but in this case the scene is something different.

The guy is using extremely long url. In fact, he is using one entire sentence in the blogpost url.

Would be grateful, if anyone throw some lights on this and provide some insights on this. Which one is more better? A very long url, which includes complete one sentence or simple and short url.

If long URL is not good then Why that particular blog is ranking higher in the search engine?

Obviously, short url is good for any blog but sometimes blog page urls get bigger and longer. But long url is not a negative factor for SEO ranking if your blog article is unique, original  and very interesting. If your blog article url is so long, then search engine won't show the whole url, rather will delete some part of it.

At the very least, it will help you remember where products or content are on your website, and will undoubtedly make every other tip in this post easier to implement. Tip #2: Use a keyword rich URL. Once you’ve figured out the URL structure for your permalinks, you need to start considering how you’re going to incorporate keywords in your URLs to boost your SEO.

Hey,
Even if the URL is very long, that is not the only factor which helps to rank higher. If other on-page points are optimized very well, the website can still rank on top.

See, it depends on the keyword. When we create permalink URL for blog or any webpage we generally look first at the keyword because it helps more to get rank well on search engine. So, we can use both type of permalink.

Permalinks are the permanent URLs to your personal pages and blog posts, as well as your level and tag archives. A permalink is the web home used to link to your content. The URL to each post should be strong and never change — hence the name permalink.

Read the above answers which are really helpful but didn't see the reply on any of the answer. So it clearly shows that you are here just for Backlinks.

I think you are right John!
OP is here just for backlinks and the thread is just posted for the same.  ::) >:(
