Including Article Category in the URL for Improved SEO
We have a quick tip for our customers looking to improve their website’s SEO performance.
By default, our websites URLs are structured with just the article title included as follows: website.com/articles/article-title/
Many customers have noticed better SEO performance by including the category in the URL structure as well.
This is easily accomplished by marking one checkbox on our settings page.
- From your WordPress Dashboard, look for the link titled OHT Settings.
- Just a few options down the page, find the checkbox that reads: “Articles’ category in permalink.”
- Place a check in this box and save your settings to update the URL structure.
The new URL structure will be: website.com/articles/category-name/article-title/
The change should result in search engines picking up your article more frequently if it is placed in a relevant category.
