Rails seo friendly urls

Hi Folks,

This is my sample url: http://xxxx.com/product_details?category_id=produce&product_id=fresh-georgia-peaches–17

The highlighted (red) things are my params.

How can i hide those params in this url.It should be SEO friends url.

Please advise…

http://xxxx.com/product_details?category_id=produce&product_id=fresh-georgia-peaches--17

That is not an SEO unfriendly URL.

The highlighted (red) things are my params.

i think you need to use nested resources. I'm assuming that a product
belongs to a category so you
can use

xxxx.com/produce/fresh-georgia-peaches--17/product_details or
xxxx.com/categories/produce/products/fresh-georgia-peaches--17/product_details

The link I sent tell you how to do it. Depending on how you have your
actions setup depends on how easy it is. If your actions are designed
to handle both category_id and product_id you need not change your
code at all because rails builds it the same way to your action so now
you need to just add the get in there but it's better you read the
link I sent and learn than me tell you because then you learn nothing
and I'm not your developer I'm only here to guide you.

use friendly_id gem.

Jordan is saying that the above URL is just as SEO Friendly as the below URL.

SEO Friendly != Looks nice to humans.

It is not SEO unfriendly… what you’re asking for is a human friendly URL.

I think the OP wants to hide the params completely, could he not create a route that uses POST instead of GET?

Paul

Why would you use post instead of get? There is no need to change
anything really (if your code is designed right at least) because all
you would need to do is "/uri/:category_id/:product_id" =>
"controller#action" and it will route it and setup the params the same
way it would with query strings. The problem comes in with the fact
that you can kill your SEO by doing that because you provide no useful
information for the search engine, you actually strip some context but
that's not my concern it's yours.
