URL is short for Uniform Resource Locator. This is the Internet address (in contrast to an IP address) of a piece of information that can be found on the web such as a page, image, or document (e.g., http://www.mywebsite.com/webdesign). URLs are important for on-page SEO, as search engines scour the included text when mining for keywords. Ensuring a keyword you use with a specific web page is included in its URL helps elevate search engine results page rankings.
