I will use SEO friendly URL slugs for my website pages.
But I would like to know how far should I go down this road.
My specific question is about whether I should be choosing SEO friendly URL's that might change over time.
This might need to change to (infact this example would change at least 1 time per year, because of the year change, but the number of products could also change):
Is it worth the trouble? Because everytime that slug changes, I will need to manually set up a
301 redirect from the OLD to the NEW one. This is so I don't lose page ranking from Google. Otherwise Googlebot will see a
404 from the OLD one and will treat the new URL as a brand new page.
What I could be doing:
/blog/best-tablets // <---- THIS WILL NOT CHANGE
And I'd still be able to update the page title:
Top 3 tablets for 2019
Top 5 tablets for 2020
So, should I take the trouble of updating the slug (at least once every year), or should I come up with generic slugs that should not change over time. Is there an SEO benefit on taking the more complicated route?
