After a major load of 404 with some category and tag URL, I questioned on StackOverflow about my WordPress blog. My blog is in Unicode Bānglā. After a nice anatomy on the fact in Facebook1 with some CodeGeeks, we came to a solution for both 404 on Unicode characters and SEO for Unicode sites.
Mr. Sarim Khan (the Gittu) suggested a nice solution for a URL:
- For category:
- For posts:
For this case the article will browse with the preceding category
/astronomy, and will work for English SEO too. And the rest of the section
/bānglā-slug would work for Bānglā SEO, and with this method the 404 can be minimized to a great extent.
But for a nice URL with Bānglā contents, I can manage my post and page URL, when I'm writing my page or post. But for Bānglā tags, and categories, how can I achieve such a modified URL? How can I put a Bānglā and English tag/category (taxonomy) at a time?
Currently I'm following
http://domain/%postname%. How can I rewrite my URL, so that I can achieve such a benefit of lesser 404 for Unicode URL, and also doesn't get down in SEO chase.
Desired URL is:
And of course: Is that really possible?
