What is a friendly URL?
Since I started to really use the internet, about 13 years ago, I liked to bookmark useful and interesting links for later access. Of course my bookmarks list has been growing steadily ever since and it’s become difficult to just LOOK for some bookmark on a topic I remember I might have added to the list. So I do it the Google-way, I search for it by typing some relevant words. Besides tags and good titles, URLs that contain some of the words I look for, land at the top of the search results. The same is valid for search engines, who favour friendly or well constructed URLs.
