Spotlight: Pathauto

In Chapter 2, you learned about the Drupal path and how to use clean URLs. One reason to use clean URLs is so that they don’t look so ugly. (To review, clean URLs remove the “?q=” from the URL.) That helps, but still leaves the URLs lacking a bit. Having a URL with “node/123” in it doesn’t really tell either humans or search engines much about the page itself. Isn’t it much better to instead have a URL with something like “about-us” in it? That is going to be much more memorable for a person, and the addition of pertinent keywords in the URL makes for better search engine optimization. So, even without clean URLs, you can still benefit from good pathnames.
