SEO friendly permalinks with topic titles in the URL's?

Post by WWu777 »

I was wondering if anyone was working on an SEO friendly permalinks extension that would convert typical phpbb URL's of topic pages to URL's with topic title words in them. For example:

https://xenforo.com/community/threads/h ... umb.12347/

As opposed to:

viewtopic.php?f=64&t=2457961

Keep in mind that permalinks in URL's are still important and relevant and affect Google search ranking. All the authoritative SEO blogs say permalinks still matter in 2020. See below.

Neil Patel is the top blogger in SEO techniques. His blog on this is a must read. If you only have time to read one of them, read his link above.

What do you all think?

Also, would this extension redirect all existing URL's to the permalink URL's so that they don't all become broken links?

Thanks.

Have a look at this, make sure you test it before installing on your live board and I have no idea if it works or if it's supported:

I'd read this and many many many other topics like this one:

Thanks. I'll try out that extension from github. How do I install it and activate it in the admin panel? Are there instructions in the package? Like a read me file?
