    Haven't been able to find an answer to this question mainly because I don't even know what to search for lol.

    Here it is:

    I have a client that is a CPA firm. They're going to be redoing their website. They have a Publishers and Advertisers page. However, the homepage of their website is going to be concentrated on targeting publishers, so they won't be having a /publishers page on their site. So what they end up with is the homepage for Publisher info and /advertisers for Advertiser info. Now there are other inner pages built off the Publisher and Advertiser pages. So I'm going to end up having /advertisers/ads but I won't be able to do /publishers/ads since it doesn't exist. I think it's a little confusing if there's /ads for the Publisher page and /advertiser/ads for the Advertisers page.

    Looking for advice on how to proceed given the fact that my client will not budge on putting the Publisher info on /publishers for whatever reason.

    Thanks!

    Explain to your client that you know what is best and they need to trust you.

    Been there, tried that.

    If anyone can give their insight as to how having /publishers redirect to the homepage but still having /publishers/ads exist, that would be much appreciated.

    A URL is one type of Uniform Resource Identifier (URI); the generic term for all types of names and addresses that refer to objects on the World Wide Web. The term "Web address" is a synonym for a URL that uses the HTTP / HTTPS protocol.
