I'm rewriting URLs for a website, I know it could affect SEO, but I've no choice but to rewrite them, and 301 redirect the old ones to their new URLs. I want to try to keep the new URLs short and to the point.
When I'm counting the total number of characters in a URL, I shouldn't include the protocol
https:// in my character count, right? Should include every character including dots, hyphens, slashes etc, after the initial
https:// or something else? I'm assuming I count characters like I'll show in an example below, but want to check, please.
Would count as a total of 25 characters, right?
