URL

A Uniform Resource Locator (URL) is a reference to an object or resource on the internet. Every post or page you create on your website can be found on (at least) one URL. For web pages it usually consists of a protocol identifier (eg. HTTPS), the domain name (eg. example.com) and a path (eg. /something/).

We regularly write about topics related to URLs, like creating SEO-friendly URLs and slugs, changing WordPress permalinks, or how to implement canonical URLs on your site. Check out the posts on this page to learn all about best practices for URLs.
