Running out of time? Short answer: No. I wouldn’t worry about that at all
How does a subfolder look like?
You might have this
Or you might have this
Both are using subfolders, which almost represent a category in my case:
According to Google, Noup. Google doesn’t give a higher ranking based on the number of subfolders.
Google looks at the way you structure your site and Google loves to see a good connection between your URLs and how easy it is to navigate between them.
In my opinion, it seems nicer to just share a simpler URL, like this:
So, why don’t you just use the second one? 😒
Reason 1 - It’s more maintainable when it comes to writing new posts and editing old ones.
I’m using Hugo with GitHub btw
But with Hugo I can easily indicate aliases, which allows me to use the simpler URL
aliases: - /personal/i-am-a-very-slow-thinker/ - /blog/i-am-a-very-slow-thinker/ - /i-am-a-very-slow-thinker/
Reason 2 - It works like a wrapper of posts, for that category
The URL above shows all of the posts under that subfolder. Nice!
That’s all for today and thanks for the visit!
Let’s keep in touch 🙂
You’ll receive coding courses, tutorials and personal posts! I’ll be happy to send them to you, weekly :)
