When you are posting a blog on your blogspot, blogger automatically uses your title to create a url for your post. This happens only if you have enabled post pages in the Settings » Archives » Enable post pages setting to true. However if you are using a fairly long title, blogger will simply truncate at the end of the last complete word so that the total remains within 40 characters.

I recently came to the same conclusion, more or less, that you did and decided to put the SEO terms on the front part of the title. Your suggestion gives me another tactic to use to make a SEO friendly URL from my posts. Thanks for your idea. Add new comment

Most webmasters do not realize this, but a lot of the content on lot of websites can be accessed from multiple URLs. A simple example would be where and leads to the same page. This is a fatal mistake in Search Engine Optimization and search engines penalize you for duplicate content. The correct configuration would be where the above two urls will lead you to the same page but will redirect you to with a 301 (Moved permanently) status which will not result in search engines penalizing the page. It is very easy to configure 301 redirects using Apache .htaccess file and the process is the same for a Drupal installation also.

I'm trying to make show as, and I'm running into difficulties.

However, when I go to (it's a Drupal site), I get a 404 thrown and the URL changes to Same thing with Any suggestions? I want to run without Drupal's .htaccess file (instead incorporating these calls into my httpd.conf file). webmaster access_time 25 Jan 2020 - 06:14 In reply to Rewrite including filesystem path by Anonymous (not verified) I think the problem is with the base path which results in the redirection to /var/www/ part. The best approach I would think is to start with drupal htaccess and then strip out parts and move to httpd SNVC (not verified) access_time 25 Jan 2020 - 06:14 This is definitely a good guide.

We are a tech start-up firm. Our objective is to make money by developing successful web based applications for the general public. There are two ways of making money online. One is when you create a web based system and then sell rights to advertise on the website to ad-networks or directly to companies. The second is when your application becomes immensely popular and you sell the complete website to a bigger player who pays for future revenues and consolidation advantages.
