URL Management Durable Link to this BLOG
On URL Management

Out of curiosity, today I counted (with a tool) the number of inreconnected hyperlinks within our site Kamat's Potpourri. You won't believe that the count is over 140,000 (141,954 to be precise), not including links to search results. There's just no way I could manage so many URLs manually. I use a system called as URL Management.

Managing the URLs is very an extremely tedious, yet an important task. Not just beacuse they are likely to change, but because they are certain to grow in number.

URL Management is nothing but maintaining your content URLs in a database and using SQL to effectively utilize them. When they are in a central place, they can be grouped, altered and shared. Companies like TDNet and Serials Solutions have built their entire businesses helping the customers manage their content URLs.

Managing URLs of pictures especially has had a great benefit for me, because when multiple sections of the site share the same picture, the pictures need not be duplicated in each sections, and can be referred via the managed URL. Thus these three pages (1, 2, 3) share the same picture saving valuable hosting space, bandwidth, and upload time.

URL Management is the also the essense of cobranding and syndication services.
