SEO Friendly URL from url variables
Posted on 2014-09-23
I'm embarrassed to ask this, but I can't seem to figure out how to transition my website development method of using url variables to dynamically create the page with content but have a SEO friendly URL instead.
As it stands now, I create a template page .cfm where I use the URL variables to populate various sections of the page with dynamic content.
As I've read online, SEO standards would rather I have a subdirectory type URL instead of url variables.
I honestly don't understand how I use the Mysite-Information.cfm template page and populate the content AND still have an SEO friendly URL afterward.
My mind goes back to the old days where I need literal folders on my site directory which contain duplicate versions of the template... which seems highly ridiculous to duplicate the same template over and over again.
What am I missing here? How do I get the SEO friendly URL while not having to deviate from my development method of using CFINCLUDES within the template based on CFIF statements using the URL variables as the trigger to load whatever content?
