    Short URL or very long URL for SEO?

    I have two questions, I am using SEO by Yoast on my Wordpress site and it shorten my url by removing stop words thus the urls are pretty short in many cases. Should I keep short url or allowing full/long url? according to you, which one should I use on post title ?

    Short or long don't matter as long as you do good SEO everything will turn out to be good.

    Descriptive urls only have this advantage that they will very easy for your audience to remember.

    Of course you should keep short url. But it shouldn't be too short, it need to long enough for visitors to remember.

    I've got two questions, I'm using SEO from Yoast on my Wordpress site and it elevates my site by eliminating stop words so the urls are pretty short in many scenarios. Can I maintain short url or letting full/long url? According to I use on article title ?

    I would remove stop words from SEO by yoast and using full url if possible. Of course is you should keep your urls not too long.
