URLs are for People, not Computers
We are all familiar with URLs: the string uniquely identifying the requested document. However, we don’t always consider they are more than that: URLs are user facing and should be considered important UI elements.
URL’s should be clean, understandable, semantic, hierarchical and not excessively long.
“Put the effort required to make your URLs user friendly; it’s worth it and usually doesn’t require a lot of work.”
