In our project we are using 3 level deep folder structure to manage our FAQ pages. Those sub directories are defined on the basis of Category, defined by client. Also these structure helps editors to manage their pages(more than 700 pages) .
So the url of the pages are like –
Now client wants to remove 2 sub directories from the url. As a justification they told that less directory will help to increase the rank of pages in Google search.
I have checked from the different sources and found that the page ranking in Google search does not have any dependency on the url structure level though I want to take the suggestion from you guys.
If this is the case, then one possible way to achieve this requirement is to move all the pages to the parent directory, but in that scenario it will be difficult for the content editors to manage their pages in future.
Therefore I need suggestion from your end –
- Is there any other way from Tridion side to handle this situation?
- What are the best practices I should follow to achieve this situation for any Tridion driven web site.
For Information we are using
Tridion 2013 SP1 & DD4T 2.0.
