Semantic and non-semantic-url on wordpress: how to run semantic URLs?

Recommended Posts

good day dear experts,


the issue of today: Semantic and non-semantic-url on wordpress: how to run semantic URLs?

One of the most useful features of the WordPress platform is certainly the one allowing you to customize the Permalinks for each of our posts or pages on our wordpress-page. As the many of us surely know, the default settings of this feature can be set via the Settings > Permalinks tab in the Admin Panel:


the procedure: go to the top of that, and then see each specific Permalink can also be reviewed and customized in the Edit Post page. Before going further, however, it may be useful to briefly summarize what these definitions actually mean.

the term of semantic URLs (whats in it)

There are two main powerful and featurerich characteristics that help and make a so called Semantic URLs better than any other technique:
a. their readability and their consistency with respect to the content of any page they’re addressing to.
b. The most obvious advantage of a semantic URL over any other piece of URL is that anyone, regardless of the reader skills, will be able to understand the page subject and main topic,
the page-visitor gets a brief overview by watching the URL  - he (we can say) gets a level of visibility on the web and indexing - even if he watches at search engines.

above i tried t o briefly summarize what permalinks and semantic URLs are,

a. how to to set them properly on our WordPress installation’s settings.
b. In order to do this we need to access to the Admin Panel and then navigate to Settings > Permalinks.

Here’s a good example of a Semantic URL Permalink:

well - this is a very common example of a non-semantic URL Permalink:

so the question is: how to create a semantic URL composed of words that reflect the content of the  text and the article -
this is a very important feature for our SEO site.

the customization-question is: how to enable semantic URLs on WordPress

i have a approach and a (lets say; theoretical ) understanding of what is a semantic-URL in WordPress - but at the moment i do not know how to set it up in Backend!?

Look forward to any and all help
