The URL Rewrite Index extension fixes URL rewrites with Magento and improves the index process while making it work significantly faster. The default Magento URL structure is not search engine or visitor friendly. With the extension, admins are able to rewrite a not-so-nice-looking URL into a friendly product URL and redirect users to the new URL. URL Rewrites Index is one of the best and easiest ways to increase the usability and search engine friendliness of your site. 


What is URL Rewriting?

URL rewriting functions like an internet shortcut. It allows you to turn automated URLs such as "/page12345.html" to more convenient addresses like "/product.html". This is a fundamental process to make the website more friendly to search engines and users alike.


Why URL Rewrites Index?

After URLs are rewritten, they must be reindexed. This URL Rewriting Optimization extension allows better control over the URL reindexing process, making it faster and more accurate.
