Hitha Nanjappa “Stop words” are common words that search engines often filter or ignore (such as “and,” “but,” “the,” etc.). Stop words can be removed from URLs to shorten them. Or they can be left in to add clarity whenever needed. Use whichever method leads to a cleaner-looking URL.

How to Make URLs That Are SEO-Friendly

-1. Describe the content you've created. By reading the URL, a user should be able to make an accurate guess about the content of a web page. ...

-2. Keywords should be included in URLs.

-3. Hyphens are used to separate words.

-4. In URLs, use lowercase letters.

-5. Keep your URLs short

-6. Make use of static URLs.

-7. Subdomains Should Be Used With Caution...


Bonus Point With EXAMPLE-
Okay, I want to show this with one example-

Url 1 - https://www.jonakaxom.in/2019/07/blog-post-16.html or https://www.jonakaxom.in/2019/07/Daini-part-16.html
Url 2 - https://www.jonakaxom.in/2021/07/wholesale-business-ideas.html
Url 3- https://spotblogging.com/blogging/how-to-start-a-blog or https://indibloghub.com/tool/keyword-volume-checker

There are 3 URLs you can see here.

SEO value of these URL is
URL 1 < Url 2 < Url 3

Almost everyone likes the 3rd one. If you see the first URL you do not know what is inside the url. And 2nd one SEO friendly but here you see the date and year 2019/07/ (a common problem of Blogspot .You cant remove the date and month from url ) so SEO vale is slightly higher than URL 1 because 2nd url included the keyword "wholesale-business-ideas"

And if you see 3rd URL of indibloghub or spotblogging they are High SEO friendly and targeting the keyword "keyword-volume-checker" and "how-to-start-a-blog"

I think the example is better than my explanation.

1: Use Keywords in Your URLs

It is very important to put keywords in the URL. Therefore, definitely use your main keyword in the URL. Also try to put it at the beginning of the URL. But keep one thing in mind, do not repeat your keyword in the URL, it will be called keyword stuffing. Google doesn't like it at all.

2: Use Dash (-) for Words Separately

This is very important according to search engine optimization and user readability. Use Dash (-) for word spacing in your URLs. Never use an underscore (_). Because words separated by underscore are considered as one word only.

3: Keep Your URL Short

Keep your URL as short as possible. Also it should be descriptive. Short URLs are easier to read and write. If too many words are similar in the URL, then it will be considered as keyword stuffing and may cause your ranking to fall.

You can use 4 to 5 words for your URL. If you do more than this, your URL will not appear completely in the search results.

4: Limit the number of folders/category in your URL

An SEO Friendly URL should not contain an unnecessary folder. So use the required folder and category in your URL. I would recommend you to show only post URL instead of showing Folder/Category in URL.

5: Always Use Lowercase Letters in Your URLs

I hope you use lowercase letter only in your URL. Still I thought I should mention it here.

This is very important if you use uppercase letters in your URL, it can cause redirect or error on some servers.

6: Use SEO Friendly URL Structure

Use SEO Friendly URL Structure for your blog posts so that search engines can easily understand your topic. If you are a WordPress user, then you need to pay attention to this.
