I'm currently in the process of migrating a site. I have some example links like this:
example.com/pricing/ example.com/contact/ example.com/about/ example.com/about/person-a/ example.com/about/person-b/ example.com/about/history/
I was thinking of organize all pages within categories, one of which would be the
Technically, I feel like
/contact/ fall under the
/about/ section. Should I change these links to:
There are only about 100 pages in all. I could go the opposite route and have my links be:
example.com/pricing/ example.com/contact/ example.com/about/ example.com/person-a/ example.com/person-b/ example.com/history/

example.com/category/page/), and other pages that have been in use following the other method (ie
I feel like I have three options for this migration:

2. Make all links as short as possible
3. Put all links into categories, making most of the links longer (not sure what the advantage is here other than satisfying a taxonomy)
What should I do?
