It is important to optimise your URLs, also known as web addresses, as this brings SEO benefits and also allows users to understand the content of your page on viewing the URL, which increases click-through rates. An SEO specialist will provide recommendations on how to improve your URLs or deliver advice on designing new URL paths if your website is undergoing a URL restructuring process.

A URL, also known as a web address, is the unique text that displays in the search bar of a browser and refers to a unique web page. This URL is also displayed in organic search results, below the link (title) of that result.
Optimising your URLs to contain relevant, descriptive words is useful to the user as it allows them to determine the content of the page before clicking on it, for example if the URL is sent to them in an email or they see it in search engine results. This can increase the click-through-rate on the URL by users who are genuinely interested in the content implied by the URL. Locale segmentation in URLs is also important – for multilingual or multi-regional websites – as this will determine how effectively a website can be geo-targeted.
An SEO specialist will go through all URLs on your site and provide you with a list of URLs that need to be improved, with their suggestions. If your website is undergoing a URL restructure process, a custom guide can also be produced, providing advice on URL structures for the new website.
The process begins by completing a briefing questionnaire to clarify your objectives. This briefing will be visible to all the team members involved with delivering the service and is the foundation for all our quality checks.
An SEO specialist will crawl all URLs on your site and review their structure and content. Recommendations will be provided on how to improve your current URL structure, including a list of the URLs that need to be optimised, along with their suggestions.
An SEO specialist can also produce a guide with recommendations for a new URL structure. This is particularly valuable if you are re-designing or migrating your website and want to ensure that the URL structure on your new site will follow best practice, and offer suitable geo-segmentation (for effective geo-targeting of multilingual sites).
