Mod_Rewrite

Search Engine and User Friendly URLs

Few years back, Google and other search engines preferred to have the url on the browser to be more descriptive of the page you are looking at, for example:

http://www.winterthurstore.com/category/27/Living_Room.html

is better than:

http://www.winterthurstore.com/category.jhtm?cid=27

Now a day, it is debatable if this is still true, but never the less WebJaguar has this feature for you take advantage of. It is called Mod Rewrite, and it rewrites the url on top to look more friendly.

Behind the scene, you can control some of the rules, for example the word 'category' below can be changed by the admin.

http://www.winterthurstore.com/category/27/Living_Room.html

Anyway, it is advisable that who ever is handling your SEO, to handle this part.

Once added to your site, the mod rewrite requires no work on your part at all as it is fully dynamic.
