Mequoda Pro Q&A SEO Basics

SEO Basics

[question]Why is it necessary to limit the number of folders or slashes in a URL?[/question]

[answer] Google sees slashes in your URL as a folder, and the more subfolders in your URL, the deeper Google will think your content is. It’s unlikely to get ranked as high as possible if you’re telling Google your content is over five subfolders deep.[/answer]
