URL Rewriting

See how to use URL Rewriting

Static URLs are known to be better than dynamic URLs for a number of reasons including the following:

    Static URLs tend to rank better in search engines.
    The content found on dynamic pages is usually indexed by search engines much more slowly than that of static pages.
    Static URLs look friendlier to end users.

Example of a dynamic URL
http://www.yourdomain.com/profile.php?mode=view&u=7

Of course, with this information, it may become apparent that you need to perform a URL rewrite. This tool helps you convert dynamic URLs into static looking URLs.

Examples of the above dynamic URL re-written using this tool:
http://www.yourdomain.com/profile-mode-view-u-7.html
or
http://www.yourdomain.com/profile/mode/view/u/7/

Note
You will need to create a file called ".htaccess" and paste the code generated into it. Once you have created the .htacess file simply copy it into your web directory.
URL rewriting of this type will work ONLY if you are hosted with Apache Server
