Hi,
I'm in the process of launching my blog website, and I'm trying to figure out the best URL structure for my website.
Thank you!

As far as structure, I’d just make it easy to read and link to. As far as SEO, Google doesn’t really care anymore for html pages vs. dynamic, or named titles vs. the randomly numbers for pages. It’s all about unique content now

I agree. I wouldn't get fussed up over details. Nonetheless, if you want people to understand what's on the web page, then perhaps links should be fancy or there should be some title fetcher. For instance, if a link is about certain guitar lessons, then how would some link on some random site give anyone a clue about what's on it?

A bit of content in URL is the most SEO friendly method these days.

The URL is mostly always fully hidden (only the few X characters of it are shown on Google and other search engines). The title would always be returned and that needs to be unique to the content on that page, otherwise if the title wasn't returned then you would be correct - it wouldn't make sense with a randomly generated URL.

I know a lot of forum softwares have something called a friendly URL option. I don't use wordpress so I'm not sure if that has it too but I would look for it in options if it had some type of friendly URL ability or option. If not, I believe there's plenty of add-ons you can download for SEO purposes that will probably have that ability. Basically what a friendly URL is, is a URL that removes index.php from the page and also keeps the title the main basis for the structure.
