I've created a SPA-website which will serve as my personal blog. I just can't quite decide on a permalink-structure for the blog-posts.

Which of the following three permalink-formats would work better for SEO?

My choices are:

title http://example.com/blog/post-title

category/title http://example.com/blog/tech-stuff/post-title

year/month/title http://example.com/blog/2015/10/post-title

  • When you introduce permanent links, it is no longer single page. Mar 4, 2015 at 16:51
  • My Ember-application just rewrites the URL and there is also a static version of it for the crawlers.

  • See What is good URI design? What are you trying to get indexed (e.g., blogs on your site by date, or a category like "tech-stuff"...)?

Ideal URLs should be:

  • Unique
  • Descriptive
  • Easy to remember
  • Easy to type

I would:

  • Leave out extra directories such as "tech-stuff" or dates
  • Use the post title to be descriptive, but pare it down if possible when it gets long so that it is easier to type
