    Hi guys,

    another question. :D I have set in my .htaccess that all php files will be shown without .php extention.

    (f.e. http://domain.com/page.php --> http://domain.com/page)

    Do I have to edit all my links to new version for better on-page seo (site structure)?

    Thanks fellows

    Ddederick,

    No you do not have to edit your links. As long as redirects are working properly you will be fine.

    Best,

    Shawn

    I've seen this structural technique used in combination of removed "?" and "&=" and replaced with "/", but I don't type in long url's, and I didn't see the benefit of this from a SEO perspective.
