In episode 110 of Semantic Mastery’s weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about the best permalink structure to use on a mail URL.
The exact question was:
For some weird reason I seem to have a hard time understanding how to silo out a WordPress site….
In the permalinks I have a custom structure of /%category%/%postname%
When I create a new post the permalink looks like: www.example.com/categoryname/postname, but when I go to view the category the url is: www.example.com/category/categoryname
So on the mail url should I be pointing internal links to www.example.com/categoryname or www.example.com/category/categoryname? Will that send the link juice to the posts or is there another step needed?
Hope that makes sense and thanks for all you guys do!
