Short Category & Product URLs for Magento 2
Improved category & product page indexation
Short URLs have been proved to crush long URLs.
Link length plays a significant role when it comes to indexation of such critical site destinations as category and product pages. Site destinations with a shorter path get more weight in search results and are better crawled by the search engine spiders.
Additionally, for the users, such URLs look more trustworthy and authoritative.
The extension does simple yet critical functionality ― it enables you to optimize sub-category & product parge URLs by removing parent categories.
Shortened category page URLs
Along with growing the number of offerings, your site is expanding, just as the number of its categories. Shorter URLs help make navigation & site growth much simpler, avoid the appearance of long and confusing URLs, thus creating logical site experience.
Additionally, the search engine spiders get to better crawl such pages.
For example, you’ll be able to transform http://example.com/new-arivals/sale/men/tops-men/jackets-men.html into http://example.com/jackets-men.html by cutting off the categories ‘men’ and ‘tops-men’, thus decreasing the link length.
Shortened product page URLs
Increasing the priority of product pages is vital to make them better searched for by the potential customers. The ability to eliminate a large number of root categories helps avoid deep linking and make product pages better accessible by the search engine bots.
Additionally, such links are better represented in the search results and look more trustworthy./p>
For example, you get to change http://example.com/men/tops-men/jackets-men/proteus-fitness-jackshirt.html into http://example.com/jackets-men/proteus-fitness-jackshirt.html by cutting off the parent category ‘men’.
Note that any number of parent categories will be eliminated except for the one that is first before the product, i.e., ‘jackets-men’ sub-category in the example above.
Smart URLs optimization technology
In order to avoid any kind of conflicts between short URLs and the ones already existing in the system, the extension runs internal checks. They are handled before URLs shortening takes place. Thus, duplicate URLs creation is made impossible.
