    This is a new phrase for me. I am not familiar with what it is. I was reading an article and it mentioned it several times. I am a but confused by what I read on Google after I search for an answer. Can someone explain what these are exactly?

    They are basically a concept that involves selecting URL's based on what you want the visors to see. There are tags that typically follow these URLs. Basically, they are designed to keep URL pages from being duplicates. Below are examples:

    example .com/
    www.example.com/index .html
    example.com/home .asp

    These would appear to be the same to the visitor but can be entirely different pages for you.
