What is a slug?

A slug is a part of the URL after the domain name to identify the page on a website. E.g. In this article: the slug of the page is "instagram-comment-picker-tool". We are using the format where it's always lowercase and spaces are split by a dash. This way the slug will be readable for both humans and (google) bots. If we just a title with spaces the browser can encode the URL and transform spaces to "%20". You will end up with a slug that looks like this "Instagram%20Comment%20Picker%20tool", which will be really hard for people to read or remember. For SEO and Google it's good to slugify your URLS to create SEO friendly URLs which they understand.

Using our online slug generator you can generate SEO friendly and human readable slugs by just entering the title of your new page.
