Search engine friendly URLs (SEFs) are not required, but are recommended for any website, including e-commerce. This can help search engines index the pages of your site, and it's considered a best practice for Search Engine Optimization. Fortunately, setting up SEFs in PrestaShop is easy to do and can be completed in just a few short steps.
For a better understanding of the differences between non-search engine friendly URLS (non SEF URLs) and SEFs (search engine friendly URLs), let's look at an example of each.
|Non SEF URL||A non SEF URL will contain query strings and IDs that will mean nothing to search engines or visitors:
|SEF URL||A SEF URL will be a more meaningful URL and can contain the category name, product name, etc.:
As you can see, SEF URLs provide information useful to search engines and look much better as well.
This is only the first part of the process, now we will need to regenerate our .htaccess file to start using SEF URLs in our PrestaShop installation.
