Postman community forum URL

Is there any specific reason why postman appends title to URL.
eg. on opening any ques

https://community.postman.com/t/improving-postman-community-platform/23130

we get the title of question and then the id.

Hey @yashi12 :wave:t2:

That’s the way that Discourse has defined the structure of thier endpoints, rather than it being something that Postman is doing.

Hi @dannydainton ,
Yeah I know about that, but any specific reason behind it?

You’d have to ask on Discourse’s own forum for an accurate answer. But from my experience, it’s for search engine optimization: there are many things that can help with a site’s SEO, one of the beliefs is that a result will be ranked higher if it contains your keywords in the URL.

e.g. for the example that you provided, if I searched Google for “postman community platform” then your specified link may appear higher in the results, because those words appear in the URL.

Like @neilstudd mentioned, an answer or reasoning behind that implementation would need to come from the Discourse folks. :smiley:
