How to Increase Your Traffic With SEO in 30 Days

DAY 9

Shorten your URLs

Google has no problem processing URLs that are up to 2,000 characters long. This means your URL length does not have a direct impact on your page’s ranking.

However, URL length does have an impact on user experience (which ultimately still affects your SEO). Shorter URLs are much easier to remember, easier to share on social media, and easier for advertising purposes.

Another positive effect: A short URL with no more than 74. characters can also be displayed completely in the Google SERP snippets.

Tips for shortening your URL length:

• Avoid redundant stop words (the, a, an, etc.) or conjunctions (and, or) in the URL.

• Keep your URLs as close as possible to the root domain.
