The importance of URLs is often overlooked. When readable and memorable, URLs provide good user experiences and also play an important part in increasing search engine rankings. Auto-generated URLs that include number and character strings—such as index.html?id=246247896234—confuse site visitors and search engines. When creating web pages, it is important to make URLs human readable by including topic keywords or keyword phrases—such as products/sale.html—to make them easy to find and remember.
