Is there any real interest in giving SEO urls to pages like basket / account / connection ....?

Or generally remove /index.php?route= for all these pages (Except home page).

thank you for your feedback.

you only use SEO urls for pages you want Search Engines to index, hence the term.

I do not understand your answer. My client finds his account by finding my site, not his account page right?

What interest to have / account instead of /index.php?route=account/account or / edit instead of /index.php?route=account/edit

For the index page I understand the interest.

What is the real interest ^^ and in referencing on an e-commerce site to give importance to lambda pages (with a module like this one for example) when we want to highlight the categories and products mainly.

letxobnav we agree, so there is no point in using this kind of module (https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... load_id=59) since the pages we want to reference are the category / product / information pages and home page. What is your point of view ?

correct, only indexable urls.
using seo urls for the others is useless and
requires more robots.txt entries in all languages,
reduces the available keywords,
slows your pages and all that for nothing.
no user cares what a url looks like.

OK and for the index page (Homepage)? reduce it to votresite.com instead of votresite.com/index.php?route=common/home does it have a technical or only aesthetic meaning?

it is good to make the homepage seo by removing the common/home part.
in catalog/controller/startup/seo_url.php
add

Code: Select all

				} elseif ($data['route'] == 'common/home') {
					$url = '/';
just before

Code: Select all

				} elseif ($key == 'path') {

Hello Mate,

It is recommended to have short and simple URLs in a website that is SEO friendly URLs, following for URLs are correct -

votresite.com
votresite.com/about
votresite.com/product
votresite.com/contact

If in case your website has multiple version such as votresite.com/index.php, votresite.com/home so website should canonical tag so that only correct URL index in search engine.

Thanks!!!!

I had rather used that in the .htaccess, I do not know if one is better than the other? But in case of updating Opencart we do not overwrite the modifications.

Code: Select all

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^route=common/home$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !^POST$
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}? [R=301,L]

sure, you can do it with htaccess, we however use language indication in the url (also specifically for search engines) and have modules on the homepage which use parameters, then htaccess becomes a pain for this purpose.
and this:
in case of updating Opencart
will not happen here.

I followed your advice and I added the element in catalog / controller / startup / seo_url.php and removed the rules from the .htaccess.

Thank you.

Yes but is it necessary on structural pages of the site such as the basket or contact page ...
